- Written by Femi Olowookere
Zamfara State government nominated Alhaji Mansur Muhammad Dan Ali for appointment as a Minister of the Federal Republic.
This was made known by the former governor of Zamfara State, Ahmad Sani, Yariman Bakura at a reception organised by the Zamfara State government in honour of the Minister, in Gusau.
Senator Bakura who is at the Senate for the third consecutive time, said that since the return of the country to civil rule in 1999 the State has remained in opposition and at such, have not been able to nominate a Minister to represent the State at the Federal Executive Council.
All formal Ministers from Zamfara State have been imposed on us, he said.
Adding, 'now that the APC has formed a government in the Centre, Zamfara State has an opportunity to nominate our own to represent the State'.
Senator Bakura said that, now that Alhaji Dan-Ali is representing Zamfara State, the State will begin to see a lot of Federal projects across the state.
