At least six Governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), have travelled to Zamfara State in a bid to persuade Governor Bello Matawalle not to join the All Progressives Congress (APC).
They include Seyi Makinde of Oyo, Nyesom Wike of Rivers, Bala Mohammed of Bauchi, Darius Ishaku of Taraba, Umar Fintiri of Adamawa and Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto.
The Governors were in Government House Gusau on Wednesday, where they spent several hours with Matawalle who was alleged to have concluded arrangements to defect to the APC.
Speaking during the visit, Wike expressed surprise about why members of the APC members wanted Matawalle to join their party after intimidating him on several occasions.
“I can’t understand why a party which declared Zamfara a no-fly zone is coming to woo the governor,” he said.
He advised Matawalle not to lose sleep because of insecurity, adding that the situation has been in existence even before the governor took over the affairs of the state.
“The insecurity problem started before you became the governor, so, nobody can come and use insecurity to intimidate you,” Wike added.
