Amidst the touted defection of Zamfara State Governor Bello Matawalle from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC), the National Coordinator of Concerned APC Youth of Nigeria, Dr. Suleiman Shuaibu Shinkafi, has given reasons why the governor can’t decamp.
He mentioned the governor should resign his place if he needs to affix APC, saying Matawalle was not elected by Zamfara folks.
It would be recalled that Matawalle became the governor of Zamfara State following the Supreme Court judgement on the crisis that rocked the 2019 primaries of the APC within the state.
Briefing newsmen in Kaduna, Shinkafi stated it would be flawed for Matawalle to cross to APC with PDP mandate.
“The governor is being pushed to join APC with the sole goal of actualising his second term bid,” he stated.
He told Matawalle to be ready to vacate his seat come to the 2023 election, insisting that the state remains an APC state.
He, however, endorsed a former governor of the Zamfara State, Abdulaziz Yari, as the national chairman of the party.
“Yari is probably the most qualified party member to occupy the position due to his dedication, loyalty and dedication to the party since its formation,” he stated.
