The Progressives Governors’ Forum (PGF), says the defection of the Governor of Zamfara State, Alhaji Bello Matawalle to the All Progressives Congress, (APC) affirms the capacity of the APC to mobilise patriotic citizens to be part of building on the vision of the founding fathers of the country.
In a statement, Chairman of the Forum and Governor of Kebbi State, Alhaji Atiku Bagudu explains that the decision of Gov. Marawalle to join the APC has further strengthened the process of membership and leadership recruitment at all levels.
While commending Gov. Matawalle for what he described as a courageous decision, Alhaji Atiku assured him of maximum cooperation to help him join the party’s efforts in redefining policies and programmes of the administration.
The PGF Chairman commended the leader of the party, President Muhammadu Buhari whose fair disposition had continued to attract members to the party and also commended the national caretaker committee for raising the standard of political mobilisation in the country.
