Gov. Abdulaziz Yari of Zamfara says full farming activities have resumed in the state following government efforts at brokering peace between farmers, herdsmen and armed bandits.
The governor said this on Sunday in a Sallah broadcast.

He said the reconciliation committee set up by the state government under the chairmanship of the state deputy governor, Malam Ibrahim Wakkala, encouraged the warring parties to embrace peace.
While urging all communities in the state to remain peaceful, Yari assured that the state government would continue to uplift the lives of citizens.
He also commended Islamic scholars in the state for preaching peace during the just concluded Ramadan fast and urged people to use the gains of the month in all their dealings.
He reassured that his administration would continue to ensure prompt payment salaries while making sure that basic amenities were provided.
The governor celebrated this year’s Eid-el-Fitr with project visitations at his home Talata Mafara Local Government Area.
