Former governor of Zamfara State, AbdulAziz Yari has admonished the incumbent governor, Bello Matawalle over purported defection.
He made this admonition while speaking on Sunday at the Secretariat of the All Progressives Congress(APC) in Gusau during the distribution of N1.3bn assorted grains he purchased for the APC supporters as Ramadan gift.
Yari who was represented by Senator Kabiru Marafa noted that he would lose his seat if he leaves the Peoples Democratic Party, going by the Supreme Court’s verdict that brought him to power in 2019.
However, he said nobody had informed them either verbally or in writing that Matawalle will defecting to the APC.
He therefore cautioned that the apex court nullified the election of the APC candidates in 2019 and announced the PDP candidates as winners who would remain in power till 2023.
“As such, until after that period, any PDP elected officer who defects to another party must also vacate his seat going by the court’s judgment,” he said.
