After more than a decade of limbo due to insecurity, the Fulani festival of Sharo, Shadi and Doro was held in Zamfara State to celebrate this year’s Eid-el-Kabir.
The ceremony, which witnessed a tumultuous attendance by participants and spectators on the inauguration day attracted interested persons from cross the state and beyond.
The Trade fair complex in the state capital, Gusau, was filled to capacity even before the arrival of the special Guest of honor, Governor Bello Muhammad, making it a herculean task before the Governor finally reached his seat at the venue.
It was not the end of it as the celebrants and spectators demonstrated their desire to pay homage to their Governor more than the sport itself and took over the stage as they hailed Governor Matawalle with songs of praise for returning peace and harmony to the state.
In his address, Governor Bello Matawalle called on all Zamfarans to sustain the tempo of reconciliation in the state. He promised to pursue the peace process to its logical end. He commended the organizers of the event and promised to support any initiative aimed at bringing harmony to the state.
The week long event, which partipants said has drawn people only comparable to the day Sharia was launched here twenty years ago, continues today with participants sporting their popular games of Sharo, Shadi and Doro, and annual Fulani festival the state missed for more than a decade
