Governor of Zamfara State, Bello Matawalle has dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the ruling party, APC.
This was disclosed by the Personal assistant to President, Muhammadu Buhari on Digital and New Media, Bashir Ahmed via his verified Facebook page on Sunday morning.
The presidential aide wrote ‘’So Zamfara is back home! Welcome, Matawalle’’.
Meanwhile the Governor is yet to officially confirm his defection to the ruling party.
