Also speaking, Mr Mohammed Mamman, the Director-General, Press Affairs, to the Gov. Mala-Buni said the governor has has been able to convince three governors to defect to the APC.
”With Matawalle joining the APC, it means Mala-Buni, as the Chairman of the Extra-ordinary Convention Planning Committee, has been able to convince three governors into the party.
