By Ifeanyichukwu Nwannah – Gusau.
A group known as the Arewa Youth Forum has expressed its determination to collaborate with the Zamfara state government to end the cowardly activities and general insecurity plaguing the state.
This was revealed during a press conference in Gusau, the state capital, by the association’s national president, Comrade Gambo Ibrahim Gujungu.
According to him, the key objectives of the project are not limited to improving state government involvement and effective engagement with community groups in peacebuilding and conflict mitigation.
“We will also work to change the way people perceive and react to issues related to religious and community conflict and it is the effect on the community,” he said.
“Strengthening the capacity of community and existing structures to promote peace and local socio-economic development remains our ultimate goal.”
“Promote the full inclusion and effective participation of community groups in state and federal government peace efforts”
Comrade Gujungu further reassured residents in the state, as well as other parts of the northern states, about the government’s ability to keep the peace, thereby making the states and indeed the country at large the destination chosen for investment.
He argued that the illustration campaigns would be carried out in the three senatorial areas of the state.
