Senator Sahabi Ya’u, has promised to construct grazing grounds for herders in his constituency to complement the government’s efforts in tackling insecurity in the state.
The lawmaker disclosed this while speaking with newsmen in Gusau on Tuesday.
Mr Ya’u revealed that the project would be established on grazing routes in the state.
The Senator, who represents Zamfara North, blamed alleged injustice meted out to the herders for the security challenges in the state.
According to him, the challenges began with cattle rustling before degenerating to banditry.
He said: “I think this is in line with what Governor Bello Matawalle is doing to provide RUGA settlement for the herders.
“This year, as part of my constituency projects, I intend to provide grazing grounds for herders so that they can be contained in one place.
“After identifying the location and securing it we are going to plant the grass that will be harvested into belts for use every season of the year,’’ he said.
The senator maintained that tackling insecurity was a collective responsibility.
“At the National Assembly level, we are doing our best to address the insecurity in the country.
“The insecurity we are facing is very disturbing.
“We have realized that we are in danger and it requires collaborative effort to address it.
“Everyone’s support and contributions are needed, not only state or Federal Government.’’
