I’m contented with all that ALLAH made me, ZAMFARA STATE GOVERNOR
By Harnie Gold
Governor Matawalle, during an interview with DW Hausa, criticized those calling for his impeachment because of his defection to the All Progressive Congress (APC)
In the interview, he said that the northerners are the cause of the problems witnessed in the region.
He stated that his defection to another party was constitutional and he is not scared of been sued nor the noise of impeachment here and there
He also denied the claim that his defection was to secure a second term.
“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 am grateful to Allah and to the people of Zamfara.”
Matawalle further 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, I can say these over and over, we are the problem of our selves, yes northerners are the problem of northerners, I hope you got my point?

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? if I may ask.
There’s nothing that could scare me and I remain the governor of Zamfara, whether they like it or not.” I’m contented with all that ALLAH made me, ZAMFARA STATE GOVERNOR. Harnie Gold, reporting from Afri NOTES
