Residents of Zamfara accuse FG of driving up living expenses

Zamfara State residents have accused the federal government of being to blame for the dramatic increase in living expenses.

Alhaji Aminu Abubakar, a businessman in the State, claimed that the Government should be held accountable for the socioeconomic problems and general lack of security plaguing the entire nation.

He noted that residents were dying every day as a result of security issues, malnutrition, and poverty in an exclusive interview with kuryaloaded in Gusau, the State capital.

Abubakar emphasized that there was no longer a guarantee of the security of the residents’ lives and property.

According to all indications, the federal government is no longer able to adequately defend the lives and property of its citizens.

“We are in a real situation,” he remarked, “if the citizens cannot be effectively protected and they are living in abysmal poverty.”

He added lamented that “hundreds of millions of naira are being spent in the name of politics,” citing the example of the Zamfara State administration, which has not paid its public personnel their legal salary and allowances for November 2022.

Alhaji Ahmed Bakare, a public pundit, stated in his own words that food inflation was primarily due to insecurity.

He asserted that the bandits’ rampage prevented farmers from carrying out their farming operations and that those who were brave enough to visit their farms raised their prices to meet the associated expenses.

A farmer in the State, who gave his name as Haruna Yahaya, revealed that before most communities could be allowed to farm, they had to pay millions of naira in levies imposed on them by the robbers.

Additionally, we must factor these fees that we pay to bandits into our costs. We will be running at a significant deficit without that, he said.
