An erstwhile factional leader of the All Progressives Congress in Zamfara State, Senator Kabiru Marafa, has advised Governor Bello Matawalle to reconcile with his deputy, Aliyu Gusau, so that he might retain his seat.
Marafa, who was addressing thousands of APC supporters during the distribution of 172 trucks of assorted grains purchased by former Governor Yari for the Ramadan fast, said Governor Matawalle could still retain his position if he reconciled with his deputy.
“I am calling on the Governor to meet our younger brother, the PDP Deputy Governor Mahdi Aliyu Gusau and seek out of court settlement so that he may not be thrown out of office.
“He has seen what happened in Ebonyi and Cross Rivers States.
“We told him that he should not defect to the APC because the APC is like a heaven, whoever goes to the heaven will never return to the earth.
“He did not heed to our warning and was misled by some overzealous individuals to defect to the APC and he is now regretting his actions.
“I want to use this opportunity to call on our supporters to remain calm and watch the unfolding drama.”
Marafa maintained that Yari and himself were in touch with other prominent personalities in the state on whether to remain in the APC or not.
He said, “The former Governor, Alhaji Abdul Aziz Yari, myself and other prominent personalities are currently in consultation and by the grace of God, we will soon come out with a solution.”
