The closed-door meeting took place on Saturday night and included Senator Ahmed Sani Yarima, Alhaji Mamuda Aliyu Shinkafi, Senator Abdulaziz Yari Abubakar, and the Minister of State for Defence, Bello Mohammed Matawalle.

The former governors reportedly united to discuss strategies to address the ongoing security challenges and to enhance the overall well-being of the state’s residents.

The former governors of Zamfara State convened at the residence of the Minister of State for Defence in Abuja for a meeting that lasted about four hours, extending into the late night.

The source noted that the unity and progress of the party are of paramount importance, especially with upcoming elections on the horizon.
