The governor of Zamfara, Bello Matawalle, officially switched from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Tuesday (APC).

Matawalle declared his defection to the APC at a special grand gathering in Gusau organized by the National Caretaker Committee of the APC, led by Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe State, to welcome him to the party.

Nasir El-Rufai, Yahaya Bello, and Abdullahi Ganduje — governors of Kaduna, Kogi, and Kano, respectively — were among those who attended the event among other APC stakeholders.

Following a Supreme Court ruling on the internal quarrel that rocked the APC primaries in 2019, Matawalle was sworn in as governor of Zamfara.

He urged parties to work together to improve 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.”
