ZAMFARA: 10 political parties condemn move to nullify Matawalle’s governorship election

ZAMFARA: Ex-bandits are helping to fight banditry, Matawalle says

The move to seek nullification of the election of Governor Bello Mohammed of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) by the Action Peoples Party (APP) has been condemned by no less than 10 political parties in Zamfara State.

According to the 10 political parties which includes AD, PRP, SDP, ID, HD, ASD, MMN, NAC, KOWA and FRESH, the move by APP governorship candidate, Zayyanu Haske is selfish and against the Will of God.

While speaking on behalf of the 10 political parties which took part in the March 9, governorship election, the state Chairman, Alliance for Democracy (AD), Alhaji Musa Maimai said they are not part of the petition because it lacks merit and bemoaned the action of the APP candidate whom he he said is carrying out a blind opposition which is not right.

The development comes after the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) said it is moving to challenge Matawalle’s declaration as Zamfara governor on the grounds that he was not qualified to have contested any elections because he did not obtain the basic requirements of the law.

That much information was revealed by counsel to APGA Barrister Ifeanyi Mbaeri, while speaking to reporters in Abuja moments after withdrawing the petition of his client (APGA’s candidate in the election, Alhaji Sani Abdullahi Shinkafi) who earlier challenged the declaration of Mukhtar Shehu Idris and his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) by INEC as the winner of the gubernatorial election in the state.

According to Mbaneri, Shinkafi’s legal team was looking at the possibility of challenging INEC’s declaration of PDP and Mutawalle as governor of Zamfara State because he is ineligible.

Mbaneri also added that his clients, Shinkafi and APGA, may likely file a petition at the election tribunal to challenge INEC’s decision to declare Matawalle as governor of Zamfara State.
