Matwalle Looted 17 Vehicles, TVs, Cookers From Govt House- Gov Dare Alleges

Zamfara State Governor Dauda Lawal Dare has accused his predecessor, Bello Muhammad Matawalle, of taking away 17 government vehicles and looting property including television and cookers from the state government house.
Gov. Dare of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) defeated Matawalle of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who sought a second term, in the March governorship election.
The governor during a phone-in programme with a local radio station in Gusau, the state capital, said his predecessor also left behind an empty treasury and huge debt.
His words, “Former governor Bello Matawalle had gone away with 17 vehicles from his office and those in the deputy governor’s office claiming that the vehicles are his personal belongings. In fact, not even office equipment was spared.
“The atrocities are beyond comprehension, I’ve never seen crass irresponsibility like this one. But, with good planning I’m assuring the citizens of the state that we will do our best to correct the anomalies,” Dare said.
