Zamfara APC dismisses protest against Matawalle as political rivalry



Bello Matawalle

The Zamfara chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has denounced a recent protest targeting Minister of State for Defence, Bello Matawalle, attributing it to the machinations of political adversaries threatened by his burgeoning political influence.

In a statement released in Abuja on Sunday, the state APC spokesman, Yusuf Idris, asserted that the orchestrators of the smear campaign against Matawalle were motivated by jealousy and personal vendettas.

He dismissed the protests as the actions of “rented crowds and miscreants” that would only bring shame to their sponsors.

Idris emphasized that the allegations being raised against Matawalle were stale and baseless, noting that if there were any truth to the claims, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) would have already disclosed the details to the public.

He commended the EFCC for reaffirming its commitment to impartiality and adherence to the rule of law, clarifying that the commission’s actions are guided by legal processes rather than personal vendettas or political bias.

The APC spokesperson highlighted that the objective of the protest sponsors was to distract Matawalle from fulfilling his national duties and advancing the nation’s progress.

He affirmed the party’s unwavering support for Matawalle, who serves as the APC leader in Zamfara, urging him to remain focused on promoting peace and security nationwide.

In conclusion, Idris urged Matawalle not to be swayed by the efforts of “anti-progressive elements” and affirmed the party’s commitment to defending the policies and programs of President Bola Tinubu at all levels.

He called upon the minister to continue his efforts in fostering peace and security across Nigeria, disregarding distractions from those who do not have the best interests of Zamfara and Nigeria at heart.
