The Senator Kabir Marafa-led faction of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Zamfara State has frowned on the politicisation of insecurity and religion to score political goals.

Marafa remarked, yesterday, that the development is capable of worsening the security situation in the state.
Calling on well-meaning Zamfara indigenes within and outside the state to caution the perpetrators of the act, he said it was incumbent on Islamic scholars to rise up to their responsibility of preaching against baseless accusations.
TARABA State House of Assembly has unanimously passed a vote of confidence in Governor Darius Ishaku and Speaker of the House, Joseph Kunini.

Abdulkarim Mohammed (Ibi Constituency) initiated the move on the floor of the House, yesterday. Moving a motion on Matters of Urgent Public Importance, he said the move became necessary following the performance of the duo, which he described as “unprecedented and laudable.”

MEANWHILE, the Indonesian Government has expressed readiness to assist Nigeria in the manufacture of aircrafts and military equipment.

The Indonesian Ambassador to Nigeria, Usra Harahap, stated this when he visited the Executive Vice Chairman of the National Agency for Science and Engineering Infrastructure (NASENI), Prof. Mohammed Haruna, yesterday, in Abuja.

Harahap noted that the Indonesian embassy had received an update of quotation of weapons and equipment from the Federal Government with the estimated value of $57 million.

He added that the embassy also received a note from Nigeria’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs regarding acceptance of the draft letter of intent between the two countries on bilateral defence cooperation.
