The executive Governor of Zamfara State, Bello Matawalle says he is presently at peace with the way the finances of the state is currently being managed. The Governor made this known after the state experienced a boost in the inflow of funds to the government’s purse adduced to the improvement in the state’s economic financial sheet due to blockage of excessive leakages which had hitherto been the albatross of previous governments in the state.
Late last year the State’s Commissioner for Finance, Honourable Rabiu Garba had clamped down on all manners of ghost workers in the government’s pay roll: An exercise which found that the government had been suffering from a heavy leakage from that source, as several salary racketeering systems were unfolded and blocked.
After which the Zamfara State government with the indefatigable administrative skill of Governor Matawalle, instituted one economic initiative which have well been carried out with the good effort of Honourable Rabiu Garba’s finance ministry and today, Zamfara State is reported to have recently recorded improvement in IGR.
Investment has also been a major focus of the state government as Honourable Rabiu Garba’s finance ministry continues to contribute in ensuring success of the entrepreneurial skills development for youth employment and investment in Zamfara state.
It can also be recalled that Governor Bello Matawalle showcased Zamfara state’s investment potentials in the global horizon from the US during the 2019 United Nations General Assembly (UNGA74) to Russia-Africa Economic Summit and his tour to China from 23rd-24th December 2019. And the Governor had during the series of the UNGA74 in September 2019 side events, several meetings with business moguls and delivered a paper at African Investment Summit titled, “The Investment Climate and the Market of Zamfara State: The Opportunities for International Investment Partnership”, the paper which highlights Zamfara’s investment potentials in mining, agriculture and industrialization.
Today, Governor Bello Matawalle, says he is happy that the benefit of the above good foundation of his government is yielding fruits through the employment of modern financial management skills by the state’s finance ministry.
