Matawalle Hails Umahi For Joining Apc, Attacks Southsouth Governors

 Bello Matawalle has commended Dave Umahi for taking a bold decision following his defection to APC

Defending Umahi's defection, the Zamfara governor said his colleague's decision is as a result of "bad blood" in the PDP

Matawalle also attacked southsouth governors for creating unnecessary controversies on the Zamfara gold

Bello Matawalle, governor of Zamafara, has given a pat at the shoulders to his colleague Dave Umahi over his defection to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC)

Speaking through his spokesperson, Zailani Bappa, on Friday, November 27, in a statement, Matawale hailed the Ebonyi governor's defection, saying there is “bad blood in the present Peoples Democratic Party.”

It would be recalled that after months of speculations and anxiety in the opposition party, Umahi left PDP for APC in what has drawn widespread criticism.

Although the governor, who is the chairman of the Southeast Governors' Forum (SGF), has continuously attributed his defection to the endearing fatherly figure of President Muhammadu Buhari, many including Governor Nyesom Wike have posited that he defected to pursue a 2023 presidential ambition.

The governor described as puzzling the development in the PDP, saying his colleagues in the opposition party created unnecessary controversy over the Zamfara gold. He warned that PDP will be at the receiving end if the bad blood in the party continues to manifest.

"We should commend Governor Umahi for his bold decision rather than condemn him because everyone feels welcome only in a house where he feels comfortable. “I am having a very bad experience of recent from some of my PDP Governor colleagues which I still find 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.”

Meanwhile, Governor Umahi on Sunday, November 22, met one of the APC chieftains in the person of Senator Orji Uzor Kalu. The meeting, which held at a private dinner in Abuja, was hosted by the governor days after officially announcing his defection to the ruling party.

Orji, a former governor of Abia state, is the Senate chief whip and the highest elected political office holder from the southeast where Umahi serves as the chairman of the region's governors' forum. APC sacks NWC, appoints caretaker committee
