Published

on

he All Progressive Congress loyal to Governor Matawalle said it would no longer accept any attempt by any association or individual to cause breach of law and order in the state.
 
According to the statement by its publicity secretary Yusuf Idris Gusau said the Governor Bello Matawalle has tried harder to ensure that peaceful atmosphere has been restored in the state noting that the administration would not allow anyone to use his selfish interests and injustice to cause chaos in the state.
 
Idris pointed that PDP should learn how to deepen internal democracy and always consult stakeholders to avoid similar incidences like what happened at the venue of the PDP congresses today in Gusau.
 
He added that, it is good for the PDP to learn from the experience of how APC conducted its state congresses in Zamfara which was well accepted by all members and eventually promote peaceful coexistence among members.
 
Idris further said, Zamfara people needed peace and the present administration of Governor Bello Matawalle would not allow any attempt to temper with the existing peace enjoyed by the people of the state.
 
He also said APC has commended the effort of the security agencies for not allowing the situation to degenerate into state of chaos.
 
“We also wish to reassure members and supporters of our great party, the APC that peace will continue to reign in our dear state, and they should continue to be law-abiding”.
 
The PDP is trying tooth and nail to drag APC into its crisis when it is a well known fact to all Zamfara people that PDP has a long history of political thuggery since the return of democracy,  in 1999.
 
“It is on record that in 2003 the same scenario happened when their anointed party chairman contested the gubernatorial seat under same platform alongside other contestants during the party congress they went on rampage hitting innocent citizens with  dangerous weapons where many were hospitalized”.
 
“The same scenario happened during the PDP congress in 2010 between late Barr Adamu Umar of Blessed Memory and Alhaji Namadi Ango where the congress ended up in serious crises and division” the statement added.
 
“The APC led by Governor Matawalle is tilted to a more peaceful Zamfara State and no number of lies or propaganda will deter the party from winning the 2023 General election in the state In Shaa Allah”.
