National leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has commended Bello Matawalle, governor of Zamfara, on his defection from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He spoke on the development in a statement by Tunde Rahman, his media aide, on Thursday.
Tinubu stated that the Zamfara governor made the right decision.
“Along with all other APC members, I heartily welcome Matawalle into the APC,” he said.
“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.”
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.
