The youth while declaring total support towards the peaceful celebration of the legend, thanked Bala Mohammed for his untiring efforts towards the development of Zaar Chiefdom and the State at large.

They also commended the governor for taking a bold step and initiative in constituting a powerful committee to resolve the agelong dispute concerning the actualization of the Zar Chiefdom once and for all.

“The forum observed with great dismay that certain few enemies of the progress of Zar people are passing through sleepless nights making efforts to ensure that the event is cancelled for their egocentric reasons.

According to them, such persons have sponsored social media goons to spread lies and fake news claiming that the said celebration has been postponed.

The forum while describing the effort as a joke taken too far appealed to members of the public to disregard in totality any fake news claiming that the memorial has been postponed.

The press release dismissed such actions as the pare handwork of mischief makers who are threatening the peace and security of the land because of the event.

“We, therefore wish to inform the world that Zaar land has been peaceful and will continue to be peaceful by the grace of God as all well-meaning Zaar people are united in support of the memorial”, the forum noted.
