The National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and former Lagos State governor, Bola Tinubu, on Thursday, announced a donation of N50million to Zamfara communities recently attacked by bandits.
Tinubu announced the donation shortly after commiserating with Governor Bello Matawalle in Gusau, Zamfara.
At least, 200 people were reported killed last week when bandits raided some villages in Bukkuyum and Anka Local Government Areas of the state.
Tinubu said, “I could offer prayers for the people from anywhere, but coming in person is important. The enemies of knowledge, Boko Haram and other criminal elements will be defeated through commitment in humanity. We pray for the entire country to be stable, and if the enemies refuse to stop the carnage, we shall eliminate them.
“We believe in President Muhammadu Buhari’s ability to restore law and order and bring back our country to stability and tracks of development.”
He was accompanied on the visit to Gusau by Kashim Shettima, former Borno governor, the former chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Nuhu Ribadu and former APC National Vice Chairman, South-West, Pius Akinyelure.
