Bello Matawalle, Zamfara governor, has signed bills granting autonomy to the state legislative and judicial arms of government.

Yusuf Idris, spokesman to the governor, disclosed this in a statement in Gusau, the state capital, on Thursday.

Idris explained that the governor signed the bills into law during a brief ceremony at the government house at Gusau.

“The two new laws are now the Zamfara State Judiciary Autonomy Law and the Zamfara State Legislative Fund Management Law and Related Matters Connected Therewith, 2021 (1442 AH),” he said.


According to Idris, Matawalle said being a “true democrat”, he will continue to ensure that all statutory responsibilities are directed through the right channels.

“I do not see any reason why we will not allow the autonomy of these two strong arms of government, which will ensure the smooth running of government and the progress of our dear state,” he said.

“We will not politicise or joke with your responsibilities, your funding and the autonomy. Therefore, with this signing into law, it is my strong conviction that we will continue to work as partners for the growth and progress of our dear state and the good people of Zamfara.”


He also urged the two arms of government to prevent all forms of corrupt practices, adding that anyone found wanting should be sanctioned.

Nasiru Magarya, speaker of the state state house of assembly, commended the governor for his good relationship with the legislature and judiciary.

Magarya assured the governor of continuous support from the legislative and judicial arms of government for the benefit of the state.

Present at the ceremony were all the principal officers of the state house of assembly; Kabiru Balarabe, acting secretary to the state government, among others.
