Present on the rally alongside different APC stakeholders included Nasir El-Rufai, Yahaya Bello, and Abdullahi Ganduje — governors of Kaduna, Kogi, and Kano respectively.

Matawalle, who grew to become the governor of Zamfara following a Supreme Court judgement on the interior squabble that rocked the APC primaries in 2019, expressed delight after being obtained into the celebration. 

He referred to as for cooperation amongst stakeholders to develop the state.

“As from today, I, Bello Matawalle Maradun, governor of Zamfara, am happy to announce my defection from the PDP to the APC. As from today, I am a full APC member and leader of APC in Zamfara,” he mentioned.

“I am calling on all APC stakeholders in the state to join hands with me to build the party and move the state forward.”

However, in 2019, the governor vowed to not go away the PDP, calling on God to punish him if he determined to depart the celebration.

In a video obtained by SaharaReporters, Matawalle was heard saying in Hausa, “If I ever betray PDP, may I not live in peace for the rest of my life, I swear by Allah.

“If I can leave PDP or cheat any of our members, may Allah punish me.”
