Following his defection to the All Progressives Congress, a video of Zamfara state governor, Bello Matawalle saying he will never dump the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has surfaced.
On Tuesday, Matawalle officially defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Matawalle announced his defection to the APC in Gusau at a special grand rally to receive him to the party, organised by the National Caretaker Committee of the APC led by Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe 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.
“I am calling on all APC stakeholders in the state to join hands with me to build the party and move the state forward,” he said.
However, in the video from 2019, the governor vowed not to leave the PDP, calling on God to punish him if he decided to do so.
Matawalle who spoke in Hausa was heard saying; “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.”
