BREAKING!! Over 1,000 Supporters of Former Governor Dump APC, Defects To PDP



PDP now has over a thousand APC members.

According to Weetalknaija (WTN), over 1000 supporters of former Governor Abdulaziz Yari and Senator Kabiru Marafa from Bungudu Local Government Area in Zamfara State have abandoned the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) in favor of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) (PDP).


The decampees were received yesterday evening by Alhaji Tukur Umar Danfulani Maikatako, the PDP State Chairman, who later presented them to Governor Bello Mohammed Matawalle at his residence in Gusau, the state capital.



Comrade Abdullahi Danda Bungudu, the decampees’ chief, said they were at the Governor’s residence to register their support after declaring their defection at the state PDP Secretariat and being officially received by the state Party Chairman, Alhaji Tukur Umar Danfulani.


Comrade Danda went on to say that they defected from the APC to the PDP because of the Governor’s handling of the state’s security situation and the numerous commendable projects he has implemented in less than two years in office.



He noted that, prior to the arrival of Matawalle’s administration, Zamfara State citizens were engaged in a serious war with bandits, which had nearly turned the state into a failed state because all government machinery was malfunctioning.


Bungudu, on the other hand, said that Governor Matawalle’s vision and foresight, as well as his leadership style, changed everything and persuaded them to move from the APC to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Governor Matawalle responded by saying that his administration was committed to bringing development to the state’s citizens at all levels in order to make the state more stable and economically viable.

“As a nation, my primary duty is to protect the lives and property of people, as well as their integrity, for future generations,” he added.

Matawalle assured them of fair treatment within the party and praised them for their foresight in joining his party, the PDP, with the aim of jointly developing Zamfara State.

The Governor went on to say that with people of their caliber in the party, he is confident that much can be accomplished.


Comrade Abdullahi Danda Bungudu, Alhaji Adamu Abu Samawa, and Alhaji Abbas Abdullahi Bela, the new Vice Chairman of the APC in Bungudu Local Government, were among those who defected.
