Zamfara State Governor, Bello Mohammed, has commended his Ebonyi state counterpart Governor David Umahi for dumping the Peoples Democratic Party PDP.
Governor Matawalle noted that “ bad blood in the present People’s Democratic Party is partly responsible” for making things difficult for Governor Umahi.
In a statement signed by his Special Adviser Public Enlightenment, Media and Communications, Zailani Bappa, the Governor said he would then commend Umahi “because everyone feels welcome only in a house where he feels comfortable.”
“If this trend of generating bad blood amongst us continues unabated, our great party will increasingly be on the receiving end as we move towards the year 2023,” Matawalle observed.
He said he’s having a very bad experience of recent from some of my PDP counterparts which he still finds very puzzling.
“For instance, the South-South Governors accusing me in the media are PDP Governors and they are the same people who brewed controversy over the so-called Zamfara Gold, premised on deliberate misinformation and outright lies,” Governor Matawalle lamented.
Speaking further, the Governor expressed surprise that: “it is the APC Federal Government which has all the correct records on the gold mining issue that came out to defend me in this saga. As PDP colleagues, I expected the Governors to contact me first and find out my own side of the story before unleashing their venom in the media.”
