According to the statement, Governor Bello Matawalle at the weekend ‘welcomed the groups to the APC and undertook to facilitate their full integration into the APC and Asiwaju/Kashim Presidential Campaign.

“He emphasized that APC is the only party that upholds the principles of power rotation, saying the highest justice to be done to the people of the South is to be able to shift power to their region so that justice and equality can be ensured. He urged them to uphold the commitment they have exhibited over the years for the victory of the APC and all its candidates at all levels. He told the defectors that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, APC Presidential candidate has mapped out strategic development plans that would help consolidate the existing reforms under President Muhammad Buhari.”

The statement further recalled that the groups “were committed to supporting the PDP and Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to win the 2023 Presidential elections but were not given the deserved recognition by both the PDP and Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.”
