Zamfara Governor Lawal denies declaring N9tn in assets

Zamfara State Governor, Dauda Lawal has denied reports that he declared assets worth N9trillion in cash and properties.

In an interview with Radio France International (RFI) Hausa, Lawal said he never had that kind of money.

“I hope so and I pray that God gives me that kind of money. May God bless me with that kind of money to help my people.

“If I have that kind of money, all the challenges my people are battling, I would have used the money to solve the problems,” he said.

“However, I thank God, for this money they are alleging that I declared, I pray to God to give me such an amount of money so I can use it to help my people,” Lawal said.
