According to Sulaiman Bala Idris, the spokesperson for the Zamfara Governor, the recent surge in attacks across various communities in the state necessitated immediate intervention. 

“Executive Order No. 02, 2024, specifically addresses concerns related to the sale and packaging of bread. Effective immediately, all bakery production companies are mandated to label their bread with full address details of their production facility. Additionally, the sale of unlabelled bread and packaging in sacks is prohibited.

“Furthermore, in an effort to regulate the sale of petroleum, Governor Lawal has enforced restrictions on the volume of petrol sold to vehicles, limiting it to a maximum of fifty liters at a time. Operating hours for petroleum filling stations have also been restricted to between 6:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. Additionally, transportation and sale of bread within the capital of each local government, particularly in Gusau, will be limited to specific designated areas.

“Executive Order No. 04, 2024, addresses vehicle-related security concerns by banning the use of tinted glass and mandating that license plate numbers remain visible while driving. Vehicle owners must possess all necessary vehicle particulars and adhere to the provisions outlined in the Zamfara State Road Traffic Law No. 2, 2015, or any other relevant laws. The statement read in part 

Sulaiman added that these measures, while stringent, are deemed necessary to curb the resurgence of banditry, kidnapping, and other criminal activities plaguing Zamfara State. Governor Lawal emphasizes the importance of strict compliance with these orders to ensure the safety and security of all residents.
