‘Your Lie Won’t Get Me Sacked As Tinubu’s Minister’ – Matawalle Tells Zamfara Governor, Lawal

Lawal and Matawalle

The Minister of State for Defence, Bello Matawalle, has accused the Governor of Zamfara State, Dauda Lawal of sponsoring lies against him.

Matawalle, who lost to Lawal in the 2023 governorship election, while speaking on the situation of things in Zamfara State, said challenges in the state did not begin with his administration.

The former governor of Zamfara State said Lawal is sponsoring lies against him to initiate his removal as minister.

Matawalle made this claim in an interview with DCL Hausa.

The former governor accused Lawal of destroying his legacies in order to humiliate him as a governor who did not work for the people of the state.

He said, “On the issue of the airport road after Dauda became governor, he deceived the people by saying he was going to repair the airport road, only for him to take a bulldozer there and scrap the road we already constructed.

“He did that to humiliate me and to say Matawalle did not work in the state. He did the same thing with Ruga. We did everything and invested money but he destroyed the Ruga.

“He should know that he didn’t do that to me but cheated the people of Zamfara.

“He also cheated himself because he took an oath to protect the lives and properties of the people of Zamfara.

“Just one of the airport roads, it cost over N4 billion but he came out lying about everything.

“He also destroyed our infrastructural projects in the state just so he could come out and lie against me.

“I heard what he said about state education. I have the documents but he refused to understand because he is so blinded trying to humiliate me.

“Sponsoring people to lie and say despicable things about me won’t push your agenda of me being removed as a minister.”
