The 2019 election campaign coordinator of President Buhari in Zamfara State, Alhaji Bature Sambo, has dumped the president and defected to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
According to reports, Sambo left with other top members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state on Thursday.
Speaking at the a welcome ceremony held at the Gusau Government House, Sambo stated that he defected due to Governor Bello Matawalle’s performance in the state.
According to Sambo, the governor has been able to end banditry in less than two weeks of his tenure, adding that ‘this is a thing the former Governor of the state Abdul’aziz Abubakar Yari could not do.’
The current Board Chairman, National Hospital Port Harcourt, Alhaji Muktari Anka; the immediate past Commissioner for Youth Development, Alhaji Abdullahi Mohammed; the immediate past Special Adviser, Alhaji Ibrahim Ajala, and over 6,000 other APC supporters joined Sambo in defecting to PDP.
Receiving the APC defectors, Governor Matawalle stated that everyone will be treated equally and also warned supporters of the past administration to desist from creating unnecessary tension in the state or face the full wrath of the law.
