Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara, plans to formally defect from Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to All Progressives Congress (APC) on June 29, an official has said.
Mr Yusuf Idris, his Director-General, Media, disclosed this when he spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Gusau on Sunday.
“All is now set for our governor to move from the PDP to the APC.
“All the committees that are charged with responsibility for a smooth transition of the governor have reported from their various committees that things have taken shape for the event which is scheduled to hold at a grand reception in Gusau on Tuesday, June 29,” he said.
The media aide said the governor’s planned defection to APC would further strengthen the party in the state.
