The All Progressives Congress, Zamfara State chapter, has told the Peoples Democratic Party to jettison the campaign for Governor Bello Mattawale’s resignation.
The APC publicity secretary, Alhaji Yusuf Idris, in a statement issued on Tuesday said Matawalle will not resign.
Idris described the call for Matawalle’s resignation by PDP secretary, Faruk Ahmed as ‘’an empty threat.’’
He said Matawalle’s ascension to power was ordained by God.
The statement insinuated that the PDP has started feeling the heat of defeat in the coming 2023 general elections.
“Looking at his submissions, Faruku raised some issues that confirmed his confused mind and that of his sponsors,’’ Idris noted.
He disagreed with the PDP secretary that the state was better under former Governor Abdulaziz Yari’s administration in terms of security.
“Is Faruku telling us that Governor Matawalle was in office when 250 persons were massively killed in one day at Yargaladima Village? What about those killed at Kizara, Birane, Dangulbi; those killed in tens and hundreds, daily kidnappings, cattle rustlings, rapes, the discretion of the Holy Qur’an and the burning of several villages?’’ he asked.
