Zamfara state government under the leadership of His Excellency Gov Bello Mohammed Matawallen Maradun has secured 40% discount for civil servants occupying Daza Housing Estate in the state capital Gusau.
This is part of the state government efforts to provide affordable accommodation to the state civil servants with their families and to reduce their hardship.
