Bello Matawalle, governor of Zamfara, has distributed 260 cars to traditional rulers in the state. The governor also commissioned the ultra-modern headquarters of the Council of Ulama in the state.
According to Daily Trust, the distribution and commissioning were performed by the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar 111, at the Government House, Gusau, on Wednesday, April 06, 2022.
Matawalle said the gesture was done in recognition of the status of the traditional institutions as “the custodians of our religion and culture and vehicle of cohesion and peace in our societies”.
“I would like to assure you that my administration will continue to work in line with the mission of uplifting the dignity and sanctity of our traditional institutions through all possible means.
“We are currently rehabilitating and reconstructing some of the palaces of our emirs across the state. Some of these projects would soon be completed.”
