Guber Poll: Gov. Matawalle concedes defeat, calls for peace in Zamfara

Zamfara State Governor Bello Mohammed Matawalle has conceded defeat in the March 18 governorship election.

The governor wished the governor-elect well as he runs the state’s business in an audio greeting to the state’s residents, saying that he and all of his supporters must submit to Almighty Allah’s will since only He can bring about change.

He explained that after taking office, his administration met with all significant state stakeholders to discuss the best way to promote long-lasting peace through dialogues.

However, he bemoaned that, as of now, there is nothing more difficult than the state’s continued state of insecurity, which has cost lives and destroyed valuables.
