He said, “I informed the state government, former Governor Abdulaziz Yari, and all my supporters prior to my defection from the APC to the PDP.

On his part, Lawal-Dare, the Zamfara PDP governorship candidate, described Zamfara as a fully PDP state, stressing that the party will have a resounding victory in the forthcoming elections.
