Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara state, says he finds it insulting for the ruling All Progressives Congress(APC) to accuse him of sponsoring bandits in his state.
The governor said the state was “a colony of banditry in the whole world” during the APC administration of his predecessor, Abdul’aziz Yari.
Matawalle, however, claimed that though insecurity has not totally been eliminated in Zamfara but terror attacks have drastically reduced in the state since he came into office.
In a series of tweets on Sunday night, the governor wrote, “I find it insulting that the APC is accusing me of sponsoring bandits in my own state. We all are living witnesses to the fact that during APC’s tenure, Zamfara State was adjudged as a colony of banditry in the whole world.
“We are not claiming that insecurity has totally been eliminated in Zamfara but it is on record that terror attacks have reduced drastically in the state in less than two years than APC’s unfortunate eight years when people were running away from the state.
“This is a malicious calumny by the ruling party, releasing a statement as sensitive as that, knowing fully how miserable they governed the state for the past years.
Their statement is not only laughable but shows the type of leadership they have.”
