Amid bandits attacks in Zamfara State, Governor Bello Matawalle has left the country to meet with his wife in the United States of America.
Naija News gathered that the governor’s wife last week left the country for the US where she was delivered of a baby girl.
It was gathered that Governor Matawalle left the country with other members of his family to meet the wife and the newborn baby.
A source told SaharaReporters that the baby is expected to be named during their trip and are expected back in the country on Sunday, September 26.
He, however, said he left the country as part of President Muhammadu Buhari’s entourage to the 76th Session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA76).
Meanwhile, former vice presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Peter Obi, has said competence should determine who succeeds President Muhammadu Buhari.
Speculations over the zone that gets the presidential and national chairmanship ticket of the PDP has dominated media space.
Reports had emerged stating that the PDP may zone its chairmanship ticket to the south and give its presidential ticket to the north.
But speaking on ARISE TV on Monday, Peter Obi, a former governor of Anambra State, said whichever zone that gets the chairmanship ticket may not determine where the presidential ticket would go to.
He stated that the opposition must get it right in 2023 or else it would be very bad for Nigeria.
Obi said: “I cannot speak on what the zoning committee is going to do but let me assure you that even in the discussions that we have had in various meetings, I do not see the zoning of the chairmanship as a determinant that the other zone would produce the presidential candidate. Everybody today knows that things are not what they should be in Nigeria and we have to get it right in 2023. If we get it wrong in 2023, it would be very bad for the country, so, we have to get it right.”
