A total of 69 former councillors and 14 Local Government secretaries have defected to the People’s Democratic Party from the All Progressive Congress in Zamfara State.
This comes in a statement signed by the Press secretary to Governor Bello Matawallen, Jamilu iliyasu.
He said the defectors who had served as elected councillors between 2012 and 2019, moved from APC to PDP under the auspices of the state chapter of the Ex-Councillors Forum.
Tukur Magami, the leader of the Ex Councillors Forum said their decision to leave followed the belief in the leadership style of Governor Matawallen especially his fight against insecurity and his provision of good political atmosphere in all parts of the state.
He said the present administration had proved that it was a government for all as it didn’t threaten the political affiliation of members of other parties.
The Forum’s leader assured that all their followers and supporters including their family members shared the same opinion and declaration to the Matawalle-led government and had decided to join the PDP with the prayers that they too would be carried along.
Mattawale who expressed happiness in receiving the new PDP entrants in response noted that his call would always be for all well-meaning citizens in the state to join him in moving the state forward.
He said that his idea of transforming the state to a better one could be actualized if everyone joined him in that regard.
