The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has cautioned the Zamfara State Governor, Bello Matawalle, the National Assembly members and the State House of Assembly against defecting to All Progressives Congress (APC).
The party who gave the warning on Monday said that if the governors and others take such action, the party will head to court to challenge it.
This was disclosed in a statement on Monday in Abuja titled, “Zamfara: PDP Cautions Matawalle, NASS, SHoA Members Against Defection,” signed by the party National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan.
Ologbondiyan said, “The PDP categorically cautions Bello Matawalle to know that his plans amounts to a decision to vacate office as no law allows him to cross over to any other party with the governorship mandate statutorily given to the PDP through the ballot box, as already established by the provision of the 1999 Constitution (as amended) and the standing judgment of the Supreme Court.
“The PDP hopes that Bello Matawalle as well as members of the National and State Assembly from Zamfara state will take caution.
The party also announced the dissolution of the State Executive of the party. The decision is in line with the provision of Section 29 (2)(b) of the PDP Constitution 2017 (as amended).
