At least ten political parties in Zamfara State have condemned the petition by Action Peoples Party (APP) seeking for the nullification of Governor Bello Mohammed of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) emergence as the governor.
The 10 political parties which includes AD, PRP, SDP, ID, HD, ASD, MMN, NAC, KOWA and FRESH who took part in the March 9, governorship election in the state described the petition by the APP governorship candidate, Zayyanu Haske as selfish and against the Will of God.
Speaking on behalf of the 10 parties, the state Chairman, Alliance for Democracy (AD), Alhaji Musa Maimai said they were not part of the petition because it lacks merit and bemoaned the action of the APP candidate whom he he said is carrying out a blind opposition which is not right
Maimai who is the Secretary, Inter Party Advisory Council (IPAC), Zamfara state chapter added that Zayyanu Haske made a mistake for going to the tribunal.
“Many notable and prominent elders and leaders from Zamfara state including Senator Ahmed Sani Yarima have extended their hands of fellowship to the new administration and therefore we are urging that everyone should rally round this government to help it succeed,” he said.
He said the 10 parties were not consulted and can therefore not be part of it.
“We believe that the Supreme Court judgement, which gave the mandate to Bello Mohammed (Matawale) after annulling the participation of the All Progressives Congress (APC), candidate in the 2019 governorship election was in order,” he said.
It will recalled that Haske had filled a petition at the governorship tribunal asking for the nullification of the election that returned Mohammed as governor and also order for a fresh governorship election in the state.
Haske claimed that he is supported by other political parties in the state.
