The Action Peoples Party (APP) withdrew its petition against the declaration of Bello Mohammed Mattawale as Governor of Zamfara in the Court of petitions for the state elections in Abuja.
The National Executive Committee of the party declared that it had decided to accept in good faith the verdict of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) which declared Mattawale winner, after the Supreme Court’s decision on the primaries of the Congress of All Progressives (APC) . and the election of the governor.
Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere, National President of APP, described the emergence of Governor Mattawale as divine and urged the people of Zamfara to support him to distribute the dividends of democracy.
He said: “The Party also urges the APC to quit all their distractive antics against the Governor and support him to rebuild the state which their party brought down to its knees and bequeathed with rivers of blood and under development.
“The APC should not continue in their ill-advised shenanigans of applying to the Supreme Court to review the judgment sacking the APC from office.
“No party should stand in the way of what God wants to do in Zamfara and the APC will have all its fingers burnt if it continues along this path.
“The Governor has shown capacity to rebuild the state and secure the lives and properties of people of Zamfara and needs our support to succeed for the good of all.”
