The party dissociated itself with the recent remarks by the state Commissioner for Rural Development and Cooperative, Alhaji Abubakar Abdullahi, in which he accused the federal government of paying more attention to COVID-19 than banditry.
Modomowa said that the commissioner’s utterances were capable of setting the state and federal government on a collision course.
According to him, the federal government has done fairly well in fighting banditry and other crimes in the state.
“This includes the establishment of 1 Brigade of Nigeria Army, 207 Quick Response Group of the Nigeria Airforce and Joint Task Force (JTF) under Operation Hadarin Daji”, he said.
Modomowa also appreciated the federal government for granting the request of Zamfara government in reviving mining activities in the state.
He said this would go a long way in reducing crime by providing job opportunities to the teaming youths of the state.
