The Governor said; 

“I am now the leader of APC in Zamfara state and I am ready to work with each and everyone wishing to contribute to the rapid development of the state”.

Governor Matawalle joined the APC, as did all members of the state House of Assembly and National Assembly, with the exception of a delegate from the Anka/Talata-Mafara Federal Constituency, who remained in the PDP. The state Deputy Governor, Mahdi Aliyu Gusau, also did not join the APC.

Governors from Kogi, Niger, Katsina, Kaduna, Kano, Borno, Ogun, Jigawa, Plateau, and Kebbi States, as well as the Secretary to the Government of the Federation and the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, joined the event.

Meanwhile, Nigerians accused him of being a political prostitute by switching sides to suit his selfish interest and not the interest of the state he governs.

Below are some reactions from Nigerians

Comr Wale Olamide: “Do they even care about their electorates? How can the governor be making such a move when his state is bleeding with the highest level of insecurity? They just don’t care about us.

Jephthah Ikedi: “Governor doesn’t vote themselves to power, the people do. With the level of insecurity in Nigeria APC becomes invalid to Nigerians”.

Comr Abdulkadiri Dantsoho: “What’s wrong with Nigerian Leaders? APC spend 6 years in power with nothing to show and now some of our governors are decamping to the ruling party for them to rig the 2023 Election mtsw!”.
