Matawalle, who was supported at the campaign kick-off by all the past Governors of the state promised to create more employment opportunities for the youths and women to address poverty in the state.
The governor, who was vividly elated at the grand reception by the mammoth crowd of supporters from across the state promised not to let the people down.
Matawalle said he was impressed by the support and rallying around with a single voice among the political class of Zamfara.
He said that the feat of rallying all erstwhile ”political warlords” in the state to board one ship was a step towards sustainable peace and a path to meaningful development in the state.
Matawalle commended the people of the state for standing by his administration during the trying times and fight against banditry and kidnapping, among other crimes.
Former Governors Ahmad Sani Yarima and Mahmuda Aliyu- Shinkafi called on the supporters to vote for the All Progressives Congress (APC) for continuity.
They told the crowd that all projects and programmes started by the Matawalle administration would be completed and new ones would initiated, if he is reelected.
They both commended Matawalle for embracing everyone into the APC fold after even as he eventually took over the machinery of the party in the state.
Former Governor Abdulazeez Yari and chairman of Matawalle’s re-election campaign council called for total support to ensure the return of Matawalle to sustain his laudable programmes.
Yari advised the supporters to vote the APC back in the state, adding, ”the present situation in Zamfara called for a revert to the 1999 situation where the political class spoke with one voice.”
