For leaving the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP for All Progressive Congress, APC, the leadership of the PDP will challenge Governor of Zamfara State, Bello Matawalle in court.
National chairman of the party, Uche Secondus said the action becomes necessary since the governor was elected on the platform of the party 2019.
According to the chairman, the defections are nothing to worry about, claiming that the APC has not fulfilled its promises to Nigerians.
Just as the governor was leaving the party, senator the senator representing Zamfara Central Senatorial District, Hassan Mohammed at the national assembly too resigned his membership of the PDP.
Secondus assured Nigerians that PDP is certain to form the next government after 2023 elections.
“We stand here to state clearly that we will form the next government come 2023 because of the masses, not the governors who are leaving the PDP,” the national chairman of the party, Uche Secondus said during a press conference in Abuja on Tuesday.
The PDP leader who accused the APC of “poaching governors” from the party and intimidating them to join the ruling party, urged the APC to focus on repositioning the country’s economy and making life better for Nigerians.
“I have never seen a country where you have an economic crisis, [and] insecurity then the ruling party goes poaching governors… it is a shame that all the governors left for fear; they were intimidated by the instrument of the government of the APC,” the PDP leader noted while lamenting the level of hardship in Africa’s populous nation.
“They are going after our governors but we are going after the masses of this country, the people who are suffering under this government. And that is the difference.”
