‘Your lie won’t get me fired as Tinubu minister’ – Matawalle tells Zamfara Governor Lawal

Defense Minister Bello Matawalle has accused Zamfara State Governor Dauda Lawal of supporting lies against him.

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

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

Matawalle made this claim in an interview with DCL Hausa.

The former governor accused Lawal of destroying his legacies 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 misled the people by saying he was going to repair the airport road, only to take a bulldozer there and demolish the road we had already built.

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

‘He must know that he did not do that to me, but deceived the people of Zamfara.

“He has also deceived himself because he took an oath to protect the lives and property of the people of Zamfara.

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

“He also destroyed our infrastructure projects in the state so that he could come out and lie to me.

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