The Deputy Governor of Zamfara State, Mahdi Aliyu, has told his boss Governor Matawalle to stop attacking the Peoples Democratic Party in the state.
Aliyu stated this on Monday night after the PDP in Zamfara elected a new executive council headed by Col. Bala Mande (Rtd).
Speaking at the end of the congress, the Deputy Governor, Mahadi Ali, expressed concern at the way and manner PDP was been treated after Governor Bello Matawalle defected to APC.
Ali described the PDP as law-abiding, pointing out that it has the constitutional right to exist in Zamfara.
He pledged to build a new PDP in the state using vibrant and intellectually-oriented youths.
According to him, this would enable the party to take over the leadership of the state after the 2023 general elections.
Ali urged the governor to leave the PDP alone and concentrate on tackling the challenges facing the state.
He implored him to provide the state with meaningful development, adding “the education of our children remained at a standstill”.
Mande, the new state chairman, said the new leadership was determined to bring developmental changes to the party and the state.
He said the party would continue to be orderly in its operations.
Apart from Mande, the newly elected executives included Prof. Kabir Jabaka, Deputy Chairman; Faruk Ahmed, Secretary; Abdullahi Salmanu, Youths leader and Abba Bello, Publicity Secretary.
Others were Hajiya Madina Shehu, Women leader; Usama Maharazu, Treasure; Saidu Baidu, Auditor and Shaaibu Attahiru, Legal Adviser.
Abdul Mustapha was elected Vice-Chairman, Zamfara Central; Ali Namoda, Vice Chairman, Zamfara North and Muazu Gwashi, Vice Chairman Zamfara South.
