The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), yesterday, said the confession by Zamfara State Governor, Bello Matawalle, that he joined the All Progressives Congress (APC) to get the Federal Government to end insecurity in his state reinforced public stance that the APC and its government are responsible for the banditry, terrorism and kidnapping ravaging the state.  

According to the PDP, the statement by Matawalle further confirmed that the APC has been promoting insecurity particularly terrorism and kidnapping for ransom, in various parts of the country as a way to create an emergency situation to cover their atrocities, siphon public funds as well as intimidate and coerce state governors elected on the platform of other political parties to join their fold.


The PDP, in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, noted that Matawalle had been under pressure by the APC-led Federal Government with the imposition as well as threats of state of emergency in the state. 

“Nigerians now know those behind the violent abductions, kidnapping and other acts of terrorism in the state and other parts of the country as well as why the situation has continued to escalate under the APC,” it added. 

The opposition party said: “It is indeed atrocious and most unpardonable that the APC is using the blood of innocent and helpless Nigerians for its political gains as well as to create a gory merchandise for its leaders and cronies.”
