The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has reacted to Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State’s anticipated defection to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

NEWS DIRECT previously reported that on Tuesday, June 29, the governor will formally join the APC, putting an end to months of suspense.

Matawalle will be formally welcomed into the party by APC leaders, led by Mai Mala Buni, the party’s Caretaker Committee Chairman and governor of Yobe State.

Matawalle’s expected defection to the APC has also been confirmed by Bashir Ahmed, President Muhammadu Buhari’s Personal Assistant on Digital and New Media.

However, PDP National Publicity Secretary Kola Ologbodiyan stated in a statement on Monday that the opposition party is unconcerned with the governor’s defection.

The governors and leaders of the party had met with Ologbodiyan to persuade him not to abandon the party.

He went on to say that the PDP had tried everything to keep Matawalle from defecting.

According to Ologbodiyna, the governor is free to choose his political future, and it is up to him to make the final decision.

He said: “As far as we are concerned, every organ of the party have spoken with on the need to remain in the PDP on whose platform he became governor of Zamfara state but the final decision is for him to make.”

“You will recall that the governors went to see him, party leaders have spoken with him, the National Working Committee also met and spoke with him.”

“So, we have played our part, he has the final decision to make.”
