Zamfara State Governor Bello Matawalle has declared that nothing can remove him as the Governor of his state so if the People’s Democratic Party PDP chooses to want to sue him they can go ahead.
Governor Matawalle is the latest of the PDP bigwig to defect from the national opposition party to the National ruling party, APC. Matawalle said during his interview with DW Hausa that those calling for his removal over his defection from the PDP to APC are ignorant and lost of the Laws of the country because he isn’t the first Governor to defect from one party to another in the country so why should his be different.

It was during the interview that he noted that northerners themselves are the very problem of northerners themselves, that’s why power is about to vacate from the north.
Gov Bello also averred to dismiss the claim that he cross-carpet to the national ruling party in a bid to secure his second term as Governor of Zamfara state. While revealing that the PDP dragged him to court because a former Sokoto State Governor vowed that if the PDP fail to drag him to court, he would leave the party.

The Governor said;
“Let the people of Zamfara continue engaging with their own business as usual. Those who are mongering this are ignorant. They are worried about the second term, not me.
“No one is guaranteed for tomorrow, even an hour per se. I am contented with what Allah made me. As far as I am concerned, if I am done with this first term successfully, I am okay with that. I grateful to Allah and to people of Zamfara.”
On PDP’s move to make him lose his seat, Matawalle said;
“I’m not the first governor to have defected into another party. But what you should understand here is that, for our people here in the north, we are the problem of our selves. That’s the reason you can see power is about to vacate from the region. This’s because all those that call themselves leaders of the north are just people of deceit and oppression.
“My reason here is that, there’s a former governor of Sokoto State who vowed that if PDP failed to drag me to court; he would leave the party. They’re insisting that I must be sued.
“But if I am sued, they have nothing against me. Didn’t they know the law and Nigeria’s constitution. And am I the only first person to have defected? There’s nothing that could scare me and I remain the governor of Zamfara, whether they like it or not.”
