Matawalle Speaks On Joining APC To Stop Killings In Zamfara

Published

on

Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State has denied saying that he joined the All Progressives Congress (APC) in order to stop the killings in his state.

The governor made this known in a statement signed by his Director-General, Media, Public Enlightenment and Communications, Yusuf Idris Gusau, on Monday.

Gusau described the report as mischievous, adding that the governor was allegedly quoted to have said he ‘joined the APC so as to stop the killing of innocent citizens in the state.’

He noted that the report was the handiwork of those diversionary characters who have remained vehemently opposed to the defection to APC by governor.

He said, “Government particularly takes exception of such callous and high level of mischieve and wishes to categorically deny that such pronouncement was ever made by the governor.

“lt is completely the handiwork of those diversionary characters who have remained vehemently opposed to the defection to APC by governor Matawalle.

“These mischievous individuals and groups found a softer ground in the unprofessional journalists and sponsored them to carry such a fabricated report in order to embarrass the governor even as it is too late for them since the governor is now not only a full-fledged member of the party but its leader in the state on whose table everything stops.

“However, for the sake of clarification, the TOS Tv reporters had actually sought audience with governor Matawalle who also, as usual, granted them the request for the interview but at no point did the governor say such an unpleasant and insensitive statement.

“lt is a known fact that governor Matawalle is one of the leaders in the country that speaks wisdom on all matters and he joined the APC in order to strengthen political unity in the state for the purpose of bringing more development to his people, considering the upper hands he been enjoying from President Muhammadu Buhari and the APC high command on all matters concerning the state.

“We call on the media that mischievously quoted the governor to immediately retract their reports and make a public apology.

“Members of the public should therefore disregard the unprofessional reporter that was sponsored to tarnish the image of His Excellency, Governor Bello Mohammed and his party, the APC.”
