Zamfara govt. bars Ministries, Departments, Agencies from speaking to media


Zamfara state has barred officials from Ministries, Departments and Agencies from disseminating information regarding policies and programs of the government.

The Commissioner for Information, Alhaji Ibrahim Dosara, made the disclosure while addressing members of the Correspondents Chapel in Gusau on Thursday.

Dosara said Zamfara government centralized information management to the ministry to curtail the spread of fake news and misinformation to the people of Zamfara.

“This is in view of the security situation in the state and the mismanagement of information where everybody takes his own opinion and chips in on behalf of government.

”This further aggravates the issues of security challenges in the state, and the executive council, in one of its resolutions during its last meeting decided to centralise information.

“Council took the decision so as to have control and to avert the series of misinformation which is leading to further aggravate the insecurity in the state.

“Henceforth, it’s only the ministry of Information or the commissioner for Information that is allowed to speak on behalf of the government, while the Special Adviser on Media to the governor, is the only person allowed to speak on behalf of the governor.

“This two people are the custodians of information of the government of Zamfara state as far as the present predicament is concern.

“We also appeal to journalists to take it as a working tool that is making easier for you to have access to information you are looking for to write your reports.
