Governor Matawalle will join APC soon - Yarima declares

Former governor of Zamfara state, Ahmed Sani Yerima, has said that the current governor of the state, Bello Matawalle, would soon leave the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and join All Progressives Congress (APC).

Yerima, who is a serving member of the Senate, disclosed this during an interview with Daily Trust at his Abuja residence. It was gathered that he said Governor Matawalle would defect to APC very soon but the governor in his reaction said he has no plan of leaving the PDP. You will not be surprised if he moves. Yes, we are working and we are talking. Every politician tries to get more people to their party especially governors. If I can have governors with me, the party will be better off,” Yerima said. When asked if he was sure about the governor’s plan to defect, Yerima said: “I think we have gone very far with the process of his decamping. He will decamp very soon. The special adviser to governor Matawalle on public enlightenment, media and communication, Zailani Bappa, said people are just speculating about the possible defection of his boss to APC. “I can tell you that there is nothing like defecting to APC by his excellency, governor Bello Muhammad Matawalle. He is busy attending to serious administrative issues. This is just a distraction” “And we should understand that we can not stop people from expressing their opinion. Even if there is anything like that, it will be made public, but governor Bello Muhammad Matawalle hasn’t expressed any interest to decamp to APC,” Bappa added. It would be recalled that the Supreme Court upheld the decision of the appeal court and declared as wasted the votes cast for the APC in the election. The apex court ordered that the candidate with the second-highest votes be sworn in.
