Governor Bello Matawalle received 52 political groups into the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Gusau on Monday.
The governor’s media aide Zailani Bappa stated that the groups included the Women Frontier for Matawalle, led by Hadiza Rufa’i-Imam.
She presented women groups from Daza and Tamburawa villages in the Bungudu local government area to the governor.
Ms Rufa’i-Imam said the women, card-carrying members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), had defected to the APC.
Leaders of other women groups also presented members to Mr Matawalle and pledged support for their new party, the APC. The groups promised to work to dispel the propaganda being spread against the APC’s Muslim-Muslim ticket and ensure the party’s success at the polls at all levels.
Mr Matawalle commended the groups for their foresight and noted that since he defected from the PDP, every real politician would eventually join him in the APC.
“All powerful and respected people who contributed to the development of Zamfara are now in the APC. Politically speaking, I wonder what a responsible person who loves our dear state at heart will still be doing outside the APC,’’ stated the governor.
Mr Matawalle urged Zamfara people to vote en masse for the APC “from top to bottom’’ in the 2023 general elections.
