The Deputy Governor of Zamfara State Mahadi Aliyu has declared that his impeachment as Deputy Governor of Zamfara State is a tasking job.

Mahadi who stated this during a media briefing explained that, he will remain in PDP the party that produced him as Deputy Governor no matter the circumstance noting that since the returns to democracy in 1999 it has been the party that he and his father has been suffering for.

“My impeachment is tasking and since Allah has brought me to this position how is this possible for someone to impeach me”?

On why he refused to join the Governor in the APC Mahadi said, the circumstance that brought the present government which is the Supreme Court verdict is a clear indicator that all what is required of those in the government is to thanked God almighty for the honor and remain in the PDP.

He said the defection of Governor Bello Matawalle would not in anyway affect their working relationship noting that whatever he asked him to do as Deputy Governor he would due to it with all sense of humility and respect.

“The last assignment he gave me was to represent him at Uyo for meeting of PDP Governors Forum and from their we moved to Calabar and returned together with the Sokoto State Governor”

On whether the Governor had consulted him before his defection Mahadi said neither the Governor himself nor any of his associate consulted him on the matter.

“I had been hearing of the plan defection just like you and when the rumour became pronounced people especially journalists have been calling to make inquiries if I am defecting together with the Governor but I told them I am not aware not until the 29th of June 2021 around 6:00 when the Governor finally defected to the APC”.

On how he is going to work with an APC Governor Mahadi said this similar scenario had happened in Nigeria where a Governor and his Deputy worked under a different political umbrella and most a time they finished their tenure together.

“The mandate I signed with the people of Zamfara is to work as Deputy Governor for four years and I am hopeful the Governor would see reasons why he should allow us to finish our first mandate of four years”.

On the possibility of dragging Governor Matawalle to court Mahadi said, it is the responsibility of the PDP National Chairman Uche Secondus to see to the possibility of securing the stolen mandate of Zamfara State back to the PDP.

Mahadi said the task ahead of him is to see how he is going to work to assist Zamfara people and he assured that he will do everything possible to discharge his new mandate as the PDP leader in the state.
