President Muhammadu Buhari Tuesday welcomed Zamfara State Governor Bello Matawalle to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).


In a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, the President said the ruling party “is becoming more popular because of its impressive performance record and commitment to good governance” with recent entries from the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

In a message delivered on his behalf at the defection in Gusau by Secretary to Government of the Federation (SGF) Boss Mustapha, President Buhari said Matawalle’s voluntary decision to join the ruling party was another testament to its virtues. 

The statement reads: “I’m proud of your timely and wise decision to join the governing party and our doors are wide open to other politicians who believe in our vision to rebuild Nigeria.

“Your voluntary decision to join our party confirms the fact that our agenda for good governance is the only reason why Nigerians are getting attracted to the APC because the other alternative didn’t work.”

The President urged APC governors and elected lawmakers across the country “to continue to work harder to ensure our party maintains its popularity and retains power beyond 2023.”

He reminded all elected party officials of the fact that “your performance at all levels will impact significantly on the fortunes of the party”, adding that “party leaders should avoid complacency at all times in order to build the APC from strength to strength.”
