On Tuesday, Zmafara State Governor Bello Matawalle urged the Federal Government to raise the retirement age for security personnel in Nigeria to 70. He also suggested raising the entry age requirement for Direct Short Service from 30 to 32 years in order to accommodate more physically fit people who want to protect their country.
This will allow those of them who are not worn out to continue serving the country, according to Governor Matawalle, who spoke at his rural Maradun residence.
He claimed that doing so would contribute to maintaining the gains made in the war on terror and insecurity.
Matawalle also promised to make Zamfara the most peaceful state in Nigeria.
The governor spoke about the state’s insecurity and remarked; “As you know that we are facing the issue of insecurity in Zamfara. I want to make Zamfara the most peaceful state in Nigeria. I want to make the people of Zamfara secure.”
On how to achieve the feat in the face of rampaging bandits, he said: “I will ensure that Zamfara is the most peaceful state, the most secure state in Nigeria. I’m working with some security to achieve this. I want to appeal to the Federal Government to extend the retirement age of the security personnel to 70 years just like it did to university lecturers and some teachers. My belief is simple, most of those to be retired are not tired.”
