Before I was installed as the Governor of the state, I had never accused any government of the state but why are they betraying my efforts of restoring peace and harmony in the state,” he said.

Matawalle stated that he would be happy to step down if the federal government takes his advise an declare a state of emergency in the north to tackle Insecurity.

If you observe very well, the insecurity situation resides very much in the north, unlike the southern part of the country so we must be mindful of this” he added.
