Abdulaziz Yari, a former governor of Zamfara State, has cautioned the state governor, Bello Matawalle, that he would lose his seat if he leaves the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, going by the Supreme Court verdict that brought him to office in 2019.
Yari disclosed this at the secretariat of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Gusau on Sunday, during the distribution of N1.3billon assorted grains he purchased for the party’s supporters as a Ramadan gift.
The former Governor, who was represented by Senator Kabiru Marafa, said nobody had informed them either in writing or verbally that Matawalle was defecting to the APC.
According to Yari, Matawalle was being misled by some people to join the APC, “forgetting the circumstances that have made him become the governor of the state.”
However, the Governor’s participation at the PDP Governors’ meeting in Makurdi last Friday appears now to be a big disappointment to those who peddled the rumor that he was about to defect to the APC.
Matawalle was in high spirits when he met with his colleagues and commended Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State for being a wonderful host.
