Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State has opined that the northern leaders are the cause of some of the problems being witnessed in the region. Matawalle said this in an interview on DW Hausa while reacting to calls for his removal over his defection. He also dismissed claim of moving to the All Progressives Congress from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) because he wanted to seal his second term deal. The Governor noted that he will be okay after he is done with his first term successfully. “Those who are calling for my removal are ignorant, they are just worried about the second term, not me. “As far as I am concerned, if I am done with this first term successfully, I am okay with that. “I’m not the first governor to have defected into another party. For our people here in the north, we are the problem of ourselves. “As you can see, power is about to vacate from the region because all those that call themselves leaders of the north are just people of deceit and oppression. “A former governor of Sokoto State even vowed that if PDP failed to drag me to court, he would leave the party. They are also insisting that I must be sued. “But if I am sued, they have nothing against me. I will remain the governor of Zamfara, whether they like it or not,” he said.
