Zamfara state chapter of the People’s Democratic Party has written a formal letter of complaint to the national headquarters of the party alleging that the Bello Matawalle government has beefed up its search-light of maltreating the opposition.
In as letter written by Faruk Ahmad Shatiman Rijiya the State Secretary of the party, the PDP alleged that the government of Bello Matawalle had allegedly sponsored political thugs to continually defaced the state party secretariat.
Rijiya added that “To avoid employing forceful measures that may lead to breakdown of law and order, we headed to court to seek for an order restraining the government or its agents from further attacking our office or destroying facilities and the order was issued to that effect”.
Rijiya added further that despite obtaining the court order, the political thugs continue with their bad mission as they launched the worst forms of attack on both our office and venue of our state congress and the majority of the national dailies have publicized the story.
“Not mincing their negative behaviors on us, the APC led administration under Bello Matawalle sponsored its Spokesperson Malam Yusuf Idris to be raising baseless allegations against our elders and other prominent personalities of the party for cheap blackmail”.
Shatima added that, “during one of the press conference addressed by Mal. Yusuf Idris, for instance,, he accused the people’s Democratic Party of being the major sponsor of armed banditry and even went to the extent of linking Nigeria’s respected statesman Gen. Aliyu Muhammad Gusau (rtd) with the sponsorship of armed banditry”.
“Same Yusuf also baselessly accused the state Deputy Governor Barr. Mahadi Aliyu Gusau of bailing out some (11) Chinese nationals who were allegedly involved in an illegal mining activities in Zamfara state”.
“In one of the press conference addressed by same Yusuf Idris the Spokesperson of the APC he baselessly accused the state Deputy Chairman of the PDP Prof. Kabiru Jabaka of allegedly mismanaging the sum of (N150M) and (N350M) which before his defection to the PDP same government of Bello Matawalle never raised accusing finger on Prof. Jabaka”.
Shatiman Rijiya added “according to the intelligence report, the state attorney general and commissioner for justice acting on the instruction of the state governor secured an arrest warrant with false charges of criminal breach of trust, and misappropriation of funds against Prof. Kabiru Jabaka”.
“We are pleased to inform you that as law-abiding citizens of Nigeria we had written to the state police commissioner, director of state security services and commandant of the Nigerian security and civil defense Corp to intimate them of the ugly development and seek for their intervention”.
“We also feel obliged to communicate to the national headquarters of the party for your notice and possible intervention” Shatiman Rijiya explained”.
