Throwback: ‘Allah Should Punish Me If I Join APC’ – Zamfara Gov Said In 2019 [VIDEO]

A throwback video showing Bello Matawalle, governor of Zamfara swearing in the name of God that he will not dump the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has surfaced online.

This comes as the governor ate his own words by joining the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Tuesday.

Matawalle announced his defection to the APC in Gusau at a special grand rally to receive him to the party, organised by the National Caretaker Committee of the APC led by Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe State.

Present at the rally alongside other APC stakeholders included Nasir El-Rufai, Yahaya Bello, and Abdullahi Ganduje — governors of Kaduna, Kogi, and Kano respectively.

Matawalle, who became the governor of Zamfara following a Supreme Court judgement on the internal squabble that rocked the APC primaries in 2019, expressed delight after being received into the party.

He called for cooperation among stakeholders to develop the state.

“As from today, I, Bello Matawalle Maradun, governor of Zamfara, am happy to announce my defection from the PDP to the APC. As from today, I am a full APC member and leader of APC in Zamfara,” he said.


“I am calling on all APC stakeholders in the state to join hands with me to build the party and move the state forward.”

However, in 2019, the governor vowed not to leave the PDP, calling on God to punish him if he decided to leave the party.

In a video obtained by SaharaReporters, Matawalle was heard saying in Hausa, “If I ever betray PDP, may I not live in peace for the rest of my life, I swear by Allah.

“If I can leave PDP or cheat any of our members, may Allah punish me.”
