Ahead of the 2023 general elections, four NNPP National Assembly candidates in Zamfara today, abandoned their candidature and the NNPP to join the Matawalle APC in the state.

They included NNPP Senatorial candidate for Zamfara West, Alh Abdulmalik Adamu, House of Representatives candidates for Mafara/Anka, Mustapha Suleiman Na'Allah, 

Gummi/Bukkuyum, Hon Sanusi Mohammed and

Bakura/Maradun, Kasimu Mohammed Bello as well as the

NNPP ALGON Chairman, Abdullah Aminu Mafara.

The new entrants were introduced to Governor Bello Mohammed Matawalle by the state APC Chairman, Hon. Tukur Umar Danfulani at Maradun during the governorship campaign rally amidst top APC members of the state.

They informed the governor that they were attractively compelled to join him and the APC following the sterling efforts of the governor in the fight against armed bandits and other crimes bedeviling the state.

According to them, the aim of the opposition is always to come and right the wrongs by the incumbent and that since they have strongly appreciated Matawalle's efforts in addressing insecurity, all that is now required is to join hands and support him.

They also blamed high handedness and dictatorial leadership where only instructions are issued in their former party as another reason that forced them out.

They urged all those in opposition in the state to stop what they called 'chasing the mirage' and join the winning team for the growth, peace and development of the state.

While receiving the new APC members, Governor Bello Mohammed Matawalle expressed happiness in their quest to join forces with him for the progress of Zamfara and its citizens.

The governor who said the NNPP  leaders and their teeming supporters came at the right time when campaign is ongoing and election fast approaching, called on them to continue to mobilize voters and support for all APC candidates.

He assured them that their efforts will be handsomely rewarded as they will always be treated as APC members with equal benefits and opportunities.

Earlier while presenting them to the governor, Chairman of the party, Hon. Tukur Umar Danfulani said more  were being expected to join APC from the opposition from now upto the election time. 

The rally was attended by the Chairman Campaign Council, Abdulaziz Yari Abubakar, former governor, Senator Ahmad Sani Yariman Bakura, Former Governor, Alhaji Mahmud Aliyu Shinkafi, Former Deputy Governor, Muktar Ahmad Anka, party secretary, Hon. Ibrahim Umar Dangaladima, Speaker Zamfara State House of Assembly, Hon Nasiru Maazu Magarya, Director General Campaign Council, Senator Tijjani Yahaya Kaura and his Secretary, Prof Abdullahi Muhammad Shinkafi.
