Zamfara state Chapter of the All Progressives Congress APC has praised the decision of the women wing of the main opposition PDP in the state to denounce the PDP and join the progressives in realization of the oneness and good coordination of the ruling APC in the state.
In a statement Signed by Yusuf Idris Gusu
APC Publicity Secretary Zamfara State made available to news men revealed that.
The APC commends the public tearing of the PDP membership cards by the over 1000 women who announced their defection from the PDP and convincingly carried out the act when they were led into the Government House, Gusau by their leader, Hajiya Madina Shehu to the warm welcoming arms of Governor Bello Mohammed Matawalle and the state APC Chairman, Hon Tukur Umar Danfulani.
This was quickly followed by PDP State House of Assembly candidate for Gusau ll, Alhaji Ibrahim Mada who also publicly tore his PDP nomination ticket to join the APC.
These acts have in all civility brought the PDP to its knees living it with virtually no structure and increasing the ever glaring chances of the APC at all levels in the state come the 2023 general elections.
This brings to fore, Governor Matawalle’s assertion while receiving the decampees that his major opponent, Dr. Dauda Lawal Dare is a political amateur who will after the 2023 elections be scared and always scamper for a hiding place once he hears of political contests because he will suffer a serious defeat at the polls.
Recall that in their separate defection remarks, both the former PDP Gusau ll House of Assembly candidate and the former Woman Leader expressed disappointment over how the PDP is being run by a handful persons without recourse to the majority, poor leadership focus and bad handling of leadership affairs by the governorshp flagbearer, Dr. Dauda Lawal Dare.
These are however a complete opposite of the focussed leadership structure being provided by the APC where every member including new entrants have equal voice and opportunity.
We therefore wish to welcome the over 1,000 former PDP leaders and their supporters into the APC and reiterate that they will be treated with all fairness which has been the guiding word in our great party.
The events was attended by the State Deputy Governor, Senator Hassan Muhammad Nasiha, APC Secretary, Hon. Ibrahim Umar Dangaladima who also represented the Chairman, Secretary to the State Government, Alhaji Kabiru Balarabe, APC Publicity Secretary, Mallam Yusuf Idris Gusau, Welfare Secretary, Alhaji Bashir Idris Ataka, Youth leader, Alhaji Musa Ardo Idris, Commissioners, Special Advisers, Directors General and many Party Supporters.
