The All Progressives Congress (APC) Defense Coalition for the 2023 general election has called on the Governor of Zamfara State, Lawal Dauda, to focus on governance and not fight the immediate past governor, not miss the road by wasting too much time fighting the former Governor of Zamfara State, Bello Matawalle.
The group also disclosed that Bello left about N2.5 billion in the state coffers saying the state under Bello’s administration had managed assets and securities to ensure stability in the overall interest of the state.
The group also said that Dauda’s claim that the immediate past administration did not leave anything in the state coffers as an attempt to discredit the former governor.
Addressing journalists at a press conference in Abuja yesterday, the national chairman of the coalition, Dr Shuaibu Suleiman Shinkafi and Coalition national secretary, Comrade Anas Abdullahi Kaura, said the claims by Governor Dauda were misleading.
The coalition said Governor Bello Matawalle did his best to ensure that life of a typical Zamfara person improved adding that the expectation of the people now is how the present administration can improve on what is on the ground.
