The Zamfara State Governor, Dauda Lawal has reiterated that his administration will continue to give terrorists a tough fight until they surrender and leave the entire state, describing those thinking of a peace accord and reconciliation with bandits as daydreamers.
The Governor who reacted to a sermon delivered by a prominent scholar in the state, Sheikh Ahmed Umar Kanoma, called on the state government to consider a peace accord and reconciliation process to restore sanity in the state.
“I have no reason reasonable enough to invite bandits that do not respect their words or value human lives for peace talks or any reconciliation.
“I still stand by my words that there will be no form of negotiation with bandits as I announced earlier on”
“How can you reconcile with somebody who goes out to kill and kidnap people just for the sake of money?
“How many times did the past administrations reconcile with the bandits? Did that work?”
