The Presidency has come out to confirm the defection of the Governor of Zamfara State, Bello Matawalle, from the Peoples Democratic Party to the All Progressives Congress.

Presidential aide, Bashir Ahmad recently revealed this via his Facebook page, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, he is happy to see that Governor Bello Matawalle is back to the party that should be called his home.

The defection has, however, not been confirmed by the governor who, back in April, was visited by six PDP governors, a move to persuade him from joining the APC.

His words, “So Zamfara is back home, Welcome Matawalle.”
