The Executive Governor Bello Matawalle Maradun has yesterday been crowned as the ‘Unifier’, the ‘Magical Governor’ as well as the ‘Matawalle of the Entire World’ by the APC Presidential running mate, Sen Kashim Shettima at the Northwest Consultative Meeting with the Presidential Candidate Senator Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in Kano before thousands of APC stalwarts. The APC presidential running mate refers Governor Bello Matawalle Maradun as the ‘Unifier’, the ‘Magical Governor’ as well as the ‘Matawalle of the Entire World’ while applauding him for his ingenuity, maneuver and tactics, determination, resilience and diligence he employed in bringing the fragmented pieces of the APC in his state back to same fold.
“Today we have Senator Marafa, former Governor Abdul’aziz Yari, former Governor Mamuda Aliyu and Senator Ahmed Sani Yarima within the same APC fold. This is the results of a Magical Governor and a Unifier, Gov. Bello Matawalle Maradun.” Sen Kashim had said. “Governor Bello Matawalle is the Matawalle of the Entire World” he opined.
It’s recalled that following the defection of the sitting governor Bello Matawalle Maradun into the All Progressive Congress , there had been tensions, tussles and hussles ups and downs, confusion,divides, factions and cracks within the fold of the party over the leadership of party. Meanwhile earlier before the defection of the governor into the All Progressive Congress, the party was almost just a ‘pieces of a broken window’. The atmosphere of the party was already overheated and become polarized by the rift between the former Governor Abdul’aziz Yari and Senator kabiru Marafa warring factions.
But with the coming on board of the magical Governor Bello Matawalle and a unifier, he was able to set the house in order and began his reconciliation and healing process within the party by waging his ‘magical band’. And in what seems like miracles and the work of God, the reconciliation and healing process was eventually ratified and finalized by the Intervention of the NWC of the party under the stewardship and chairmanship of the Senator Abdullah Adamu.
As a true democrat and a man of his words, and a great strategic planner with very high genius in politicking and conflict resolutions, the Governor was able to find a new formula that enable him to embrace and accommodate all the aggrieved members of the party who were on the verge of leaving the party.
Now APC Zamfara State is more unified and United than ever with the governor Bello Matawalle as both the flagbearer and the governorship candidate of the party for 2023 general election.
