The Zamfara State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) says the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state is on its knees.

In a statement, APC State Publicity Secretary, Yusuf Idris Gusau, said with the defection of the state PDP women leader, Hajiya Madina Shehu, and over 1000 women and campaign coordinators of the state’s governorship candidate, the party is almost extinct in the state.

He said, “These acts have in all civility brought the PDP to its knees living it with virtually no structure and increasing the ever glaring chances of the APC at all levels in the state come the 2023 general elections”.

The party noted that the development confirmed the assertion by Governor Matawalle’s when he received the decampees.

He said his major opponent, Dr. Dauda Lawal Dare, is a political amateur who will after the 2023 elections be scared and always scamper for a hiding place once he hears of political contests because he will suffer a serious defeat at the polls.

The party added, “These are however a complete opposite of the focused leadership structure being provided by the APC where every member including new entrants have equal voice and opportunity.

“We therefore wish to welcome the over 1,000 former PDP leaders and their supporters into the APC and reiterate that they will be treated with all fairness which has been the guiding word in our great party”.

The APC commended the decision of the women wing of the main opposition PDP in to denounce the PDP and join the progressives in realisation of the oneness and good coordination of the ruling party in the state.

It further added, “The APC commends the public tearing of the PDP membership cards by the over 1000 women who announced their defection from the PDP and convincingly carried out the act when they were led into the Government House, Gusau by their leader, Hajiya Madina Shehu to the warm welcoming arms of Governor Bello Mohammed Matawalle and the state APC Chairman, Hon Tukur Umar Danfulani.

“This was quickly followed by PDP State House of Assembly candidate for Gusau ll, Alhaji Ibrahim Mada who also publicly tore his PDP nomination ticket to join the APC”.
