National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has described the defection of Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State from the PDP to the ruling party as a welcome development.
In a statement on Thursday by his media aide, Tunde Rahman, Tinubu commended the Zamfara governor for making the right decision.
The APC chieftain welcomes Matawalle into the APC, adding that the move by the governor is the best way to ensure good governance in the state.
He urged Matawalle to cooperate with the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure that Zamfara benefits from the progressive policies of the ruling party.
The APC chieftain also noted that the doors of the APC are open to receiving as many who are interested in joining the ruling party.
The statement read in parts: “The move by Matawalle is the best way to ensure good governance in the state by being a member of the party that was founded on democratic ideals and the objective of forging a better society for all Nigeria’s people.
“That party is the APC for it represents the best of our present and our future.
“The entry of governors Matawalle, David Umahi of Ebonyi and Ben Ayade of Cross River into the party demonstrates that the APC umbrella is succinctly broad to accommodate all those with valuable ideas and contributions to the party and our country.”
