Zamfara PDP in a Hole, Bereft Within Itself

Ahead of the 2023 general elections, again, the Federal High Court, sitting in Gusau, for the second time nullified the PDP primary election that produced Dr. Dauda Lawal Dare as the party’s flagbearer in the state, only that this time around, the court disqualified the PDP from fielding a governorship candidate in Zamfara for the 2023 election.

This was made possible by the party itself as it according to the counsel to one of the governorship aspirants, violated the law by failing to comply with the mandatory provision of 21 days’ notice to the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC before conducting the primary election that produced Mr. Dauda.

The ruling delivered by Justice Aminu Bappa Aliyu of Federal High Court, Gusau has affirmed our earlier assertion that PDP in Zamfara is facing a serious intra-party crisis ranging from party leadership to Governorship candidates where we called on them to put their house in order before joining any race in the state

A party that is not practicing internal democracy within its members but dictatorship and always abusing electoral laws and that of their party while nominating their candidate, usually, cannot end well.

Such a political party cannot also be a match to APC in Zamfara that has been law abiding in all its activities having learned from its previous bitter experience in the state and has been doing everything to ensure that only the right thing is done including the enthronement of a level playing ground for all political parties to play the game according to the rules.

Anyone insisting on equity must come with clean hands, that is the law of fairness and justice and as humans, we must respect this than castigate others.

We at the APC especially at the Zamfara state Chapter have always urged for orderliness, bringing citizens together for the betterment of our dear state but all we got from the PDP were castigation, allegations upon allegations.

No doubt, the APC has now been naturally vindicated that it remains the party to beat in Zamfara as it has continued to receive and enjoy the goodwill of the good people of Zamfara.

We wish to enjoin our ever-increasing members and supporters to continue to be law-abiding while the state government under the focused leadership of governor Bello Mohammed Matawalle strives to make life better and easier for the citizens.

Gusau is APC Publicity Secretary, Zamfara State
