Zamfara lawmakers pay tributes to Speakers father, other victims of bandits attacks
The Zamfara State House of Assembly in its resumed plenary paid a special tribute to late Alhaji Mu’azu Abubakar Magarya, the biological father to the Speaker of the House, Hon Nasiru Mu’azu Magarya who died in the hands of bandits while in captivity.
The House also paid a similar tribute to Damaga and Kurya communities in Maradun and Kaura Namoda Local Government Areas of the state respectively whose communities were recently attacked by terrorists and had scores of innocent people killed and properties worth millions of Naira destroyed.
Leading the debate and special tribute at the floor of the House, the leader of the state House of Assembly, Hon Faruk Musa Dosara condemned in the strongest terms terrorists attacks on innocent people of the state as barbaric, primitive and dastardly; also describing it as one destruction too many.
Hon Dosara who also described late Alhaji Mu’azu Magarya as dedicated, humble, hardworking, God-fearing and a complete gentleman who dedicated his life to the service of Allah and humanity said the distinguished old man lived a life worthy of emulation and prayed Allah to forgive his shortcomings and grant him aljanah firdaus.
He also made similar recommendations to the victims of Damaga and Kuryar Madaro communities where terror attacks were carried out recently and condoled with those that lost their loved ones and sympathised with those that got their property destroyed not only in that communities but in the state at large.
The House leader then called on the people of the state to intensify prayers for the restoration of peace and normalcy in the state, cautioning them not to politicised the issue of insecurity in the state.
While commending the punitive security measures put in place by the state government to curtail insecurity in Zamfara, Hon Dosara said such measures have since yielded positive results in all nooks and crannies of the state.
Also contributing in the debate and special tribute, member representing Maru North Hon Yusuf Alhassan Kanoma noted that though the entire House is in mourning mood following the death of ”our father, late Alhaji Mu’azu Magarya and other victims of different banditry attacks across the state, the state government’s decision to cease telecommunication networks in the rural areas of the state which was also replicated by some neighbouring state governments was commendable.
“Most of the states that share borders with Zamfara coupled with a cut in supply of all essential amenities such as food, and petroleum products have gone a long way in crippling the activities of bandits and banditry in this region”
In his response, the presiding officer of the plenary, Deputy Speaker, Hon. Musa Bawa Musa Yankuzo, while condoling the entire members over the death of the victims of different attacks ordered the chairman, House Committee on religious affairs, Hon Kabiru Hashimu Dansadau offer special prayers for the repose of the souls of late Alhaji Mu’azu Magarya and all those that lost their precious lives in the course of banditry attacks in the state.
