Former Governor of Zamfara State, Alhaji AbdulAziz Yari, has warned that the state Governor, Bello Matawalle, would lose the seat should he cross-carpet from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), going by the Supreme Court’s verdict that brought him to power in 2019.
Yari spoke at the secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Gusau on Sunday, during the distribution of N1.3 billion assorted grains he purchased for the APC supporters as a Ramadan gift.
He said nobody had informed them either verbally or in writing that Matawalle was defecting to the APC.
He, however, cautioned that the apex court nullified the election of the APC candidates in 2019 and announced the PDP candidates as winners who would remain in power till 2023.
“As such, until after that period, any PDP elected officer who defects to another party must also vacate his seat going by the court’s judgement,” he said.
Yari said Matawalle was being misled by some people to join the APC, “forgetting the circumstances that have made him to become the Governor of the state.”
