JUST IN: Matawalle Defects To APC


Governor Bello Matawalle Crosses The Floor, Moves To APC. 

The Governor of Zamfara State, Bello Matawalle has according to reports joined the All Progressives Congress (APC) 

The Personal Assistant to President Buhari on Digital and New Media, Bashir Ahmed disclosed this on his verified Facebook page on Sunday morning.

The presidential aide wrote ‘’So Zamfara is back home! Welcome, Matawalle’’.

As at press time, Matawalle had not issued any statement confirming or debunking the information. 


There has been rumors about his defecting and quite recently Matawalle was said to be positioning for official defection on Tuesday, June 29 2021.  The APC national, state officers and other ruling party are said to have concluded arrangements to receive him in Gusau, Zamafara State capital.

National spokesman of the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, told Daily Sun that the headquarters of the party was not aware of Matawalle’s plans to defect as he had not officially notified them.

“He has not written to us. In a normal setting, if you are a member of our party and you want to leave, you should write. The governor of Zamfara State has not officially written to notify us that he will leave the party.

“On account of that, we cannot say we are aware of his plans,” Ologbondiyan said.
