Since the Executive Governor of Zamfara State, His Excellency Bello Matawalle, decamped to the ruling All Progressive Party, APC, he has been getting all things right.
His people can’t stop praising and supporting him for his various moves, most especially in the formation of the newly looked vibrant, young and youthful members of his Executive cabinet.
One of those appointment that many has hailed as a round peg in a round hole is the appointment of the 35-year-old Zamfara State Commissioner for Commerce and Industry, Honorable Yazeed Shehu Danfulani.
