Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo has tasked Nigerians to inculcate the spirit of unity and love as no nation can develop in an environment of chaos and acrimony.
Osinbajo gave the assurance on Tuesday in Talata Mafara town while commissioning various projects in Zamfara State worth over N5.9 billion.
The acting President said Nigerians must shun all forms of negative behaviors which he said only leads to disaffection and confusion in the country.
Osinbajo assured that federal government has put in place mechanism to wipe out banditry and other forms of criminality in Zamfara state and other parts of the country.
He said the current administration is also working to improve the economic status of Nigerians through the implementations of good programmes and policies.
Earlier, Zamfara state governor, Alhaji Abdul’Aziz Yari Abubakar commended the federal government for current success in the fight against bandits and cattle rustlers in the state.
Yari said the recent surge in deployment of troops and the required military arsenals have indeed made a huge impact as the combined operations of the Army, Air Force and other security agencies across the various blackspots in the state have succeeded in neutralising many bandits.
He urged the federal government to establish a rice milling plant in the state to reduce unemployment and also improve the economic base of the people.
“Talata Mafara local government area is the largest producer of rice in northern Nigeria and therefore we want a rice mill to be established”, he said.
The projects commissioned by Osinbajo are the renovated and expanded Government Girls College Talata Mafara, 12.8 Km New Bye Pass Road Talata Mafara and also renovated and expanded Abubakar Tinau Primary School, Talata Mafara.
Others are upgraded 150 bed General Hospital Bakura and New Gamji Water Project in Gamji village, Bakura Local Government area.
