A chieftain of All Progressive Congress in Zamfara Abdulmalik Zubairu (Zannan Bungudu) has described as “politically deceptive” the recent move by Zamfara PDP Chairman Tukur Danfulani to announced that Zamfara PDP has received over 1000 defectors from the All Progressive Congress APC in his Bungudu constituency.

Zanna who spoke to the Managing Editor of Thunder Blowers in Gusau on Sunday said PDP leaders in Zamfara led by Tukur Danfulani are only making fool of the Governor and using their tactics of receiving defectors to be collecting money from Matawalle.

He affirmed that Comrade Danda Bungudu is a known card-carrying member of the PDP and ahead of what he described as “film making event of Saturday” the posters of Comrade Danda Bungudu have been in circulation in Bungudu town and environs bearing PDP logo and tags.

He further explained that people like Mainasara Rimi, Nura Umar (NU) Sani Maidala Bela, Alh Yahoo Lawali (Yabo Minister), Kabiru B. Super Kwatarkwashi and Eng. Tsoho Mamman who accompanied Danda Bungudu to government house on Saturday are all card carrying members of PDP and they are known to every citizen of Bungudu local government.

He challenged PDP leaders in Bungudu to deny this claim made by him if they have counter fact noting that Bungudu has always been a strong hold of APC and that political tempo would be sustained.

“There is no APC supporter from Bungudu that defect to the PDP. I am a party stakeholder in the area and if their claim is genuine let them publish the names of the 1000 supporters for the entire world to see”.

“The few of them you saw in the picture are already members of the PDP and if they have received 1000 supporters of the APC why can’t they at least published their names for people to see and make judgement”.

Zanna added that, the new PDP Chairman in Zamfara is only playing a game of deceit and this is not politics because you have to be practical as a politician. We challenged PDP to publish the names of these 1000 people if at all they are serious”.

He assured that APC is intact in Bungudu and affirmed that Danda Bungudu and his co-travellers were at the Governor’s residence on Saturday for a monetary mission and asked that they most not hide under the APC before they can get their monetary mission accomplished.

He added that, APC leader in Zamfara Abdulazeez Yari Abubakar is doing well for the supporters of the party and that none would move to the PDP with the state of uncertainty that characterized its political operation.

He advised Governor Bello Matawalle to trade with caution as the majority of those he received as defectors are already members of his party but riding on the political tactics of the PDP Chairman to be extorting money from him.

Zanna also advised the Governor to instead of wasting money in the name of receiving defectors execute some developmental projects that would torch the lives of Zamfara people noting that, in the two years of Matawalle administration people of Bungudu have not benefited from infrastructural projects worth N10 million naira.
