Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara state has tackled Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ekiti state over comments he made about the crisis rocking the All Progressives Congress.
Recall that Akeredolu had said that only “Yahoo Yahoo governors” are on the side of Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe state, following his removal as Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC).
Matawalle in a statement released by his Special Adviser on Public Enlightenment, Media and Communications Mr Zailani Bappa on Friday March 11, called for caution.
The statement read;
“It is not right for us to wash our dirty linens in the media, especially at this critical time of the party’s transformation as we move towards a decisive period in 2023.
“I believe that each of us has been trying his best in his way to move the interest of our great party forward.
“His Excellency, Gov. Mai Mala Buni has no doubt, contributed immensely to the promotion of the party’s fortunes and indeed all other governors who disagreed with one another.
“However, we all disagree to agree. That is the beauty of democracy. There is no point in promoting disharmony among ourselves after disagreements are settled.
“It is not wise to drag the name of His Excellency, Mr President into taking sides on issues that are ordinarily a normal political misunderstanding common to every collection of interests. Now, more than ever before, the party needs the strength and unity to face the challenges ahead as we move towards the critical period of elections of which the party must maintain its supremacy at all levels. Together as one, we shall continue to conquer and prosper.”
