The Zamfara chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has fired back at the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), stating that Governor Bello Matawalle would not resign his position as the governor of the state.
The PDP had urged the governor to resign following his defection from PDP to APC, as well as his inability to tackle the prevailing security challenges in the state.
But Mr Yusuf Idris, the state APC Publicity Secretary, told newsmen in Gusau on Wednesday that the call was misplaced.
Idris said Matawalle would not resign because of a certain call by desperate politicians trying to safeguard their selfish interests.
He said Matawalle‘s emergence as the state governor was ordained by God, adding that the call for his resignation by PDP was a sign of accepting defeat in the upcoming 2023 general elections.
“The achievements of the governor are very clear; even though he is not in full control of the security agencies.
“But his administration has been giving support to them in restoring peace and stability in the state,” he said.
