Zamfara: Matawalle Alleged Defection - Dump PDP And Lose Your Seat, Yari To The Governor

Top News

Following the alleged plan by Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara state to dump the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC), former Governor Abdulazeez Yari has warned him that he will lose his seat if he tries it.

Yari stated this yesterday at the APC Secretariat Gusau, Zamfara state while sighting the Supreme Court judgment that brought Matawalle to power in 2019.

The former Governor was represented by Senator Kabir Marafa during the distribution of assorted grains the former governor purchased as a Ramadam gift for APC supporters in the state.

He revealed, nobody informed them in the APC of Governor Matawalle planned defection either verbally or written.

However, he cautioned the Governor that the Apex court nullified the APC candidate in favor of PDP to remain in office until 2023, noting that if Matawalle tries otherwise will amount him to shooting himself on the foot.

He insisted that going by the court verdict, any PDP member that cross-carpet to APC shall be ready to vacate his seat.

Yari said Matawalle was being misled by some people to join the APC “forgetting the circumstances that have made him become the governor of the state.”
