Yari who was represented by Senator Kabiru Marafa explained that based on a judgment of the Supreme Court, any Zamfara PDP elected official who defects will lose the position he holds.
“As such, until after that period, any PDP elected officer who defects to another party must also vacate his seat going by the court’s judgment.”
Yari claimed that Matawalle was being misled by some people to join the APC.
He stated that the politician has forgotten the circumstances that made him become the governor of the state.
Meanwhile, reports have indicated that Governor Matawalle may dump the PDP for the APC any moment soon.
A source in the ruling party said the quest to get a second term in office in 2023 is the major reason behind the governor’s move to the APC.
According to the report, the source said the governor has been told that there’s no guarantee of a second term if he remains in the PDP.
