Zamfara 2023: No plans to defect to APC, says PDP guber candidate

Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the forthcoming governorship election in Zamfara State, Dr Dauda Lawal, has debunked claims making the rounds on Facebook that he would soon defect to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

On the 26th of May 2022, Lawal clinched the PDP governorship ticket to contest for the office of the governor of Zamfara State in the 2023 general election.

In a statement issued by the Dauda Lawal Media Office (DLMO) on Saturday, it said the claims were false and mischievous and aimed at misleading the public.

The DLMO assured that Lawal is still in the race and will see it to a logical conclusion come 2023, adding that PDP would win and govern Zamfara State, considering his fast-growing popularity and political might across the state.

The media office stressed that Lawal is ready and confident in his cause to unseat the ruling APC, to wipe away the tears that the incumbent administration has inflicted on the people.

The statement read, “To our dear supporters and party members of Zamfara State, do not listen to any rumour purporting that Dr Dauda Lawal is making plans to defect to the APC. This is an absolute fallacy and could only have happened in the imagination of the rumour peddler.

“Peddling rumour of Dauda Lawal’s defection is a sign that the ruling APC in Zamfara State is already jittery, having seen the massive acceptance of Lawal and the PDP across the length and breadth of Zamfara State.

“We call on the good people of Zamfara to ignore any rumour claiming that our candidate has perfected plans to defect to any party or that he is no longer in the race.

“Dauda is very much in the race, and he is winning, by the special grace of Allah and the support of the good people of Zamfara State.”
