2023 elections: Zamfara’s budget commissioner dumps APC, joins PDP

The commissioner for budget and economic planning in Zamfara, Alhaji Aliyu Tukur E.S Mafara, has defected from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

During a press briefing in Gusau on Friday, February 10, Marafa declared his defection from the APC and pledged full support for the PDP and its gubernatorial candidate in the state, Dauda Lawal, during the coming elections, Leadership reports.

Alhaji Mafara was among the key figures in the Zamfara chapter of APC and a grassroots politician.

Speaking with journalists after a closed-door meeting with Lawal, Marafa made it clear that his conscience would not allow him to stick to what he described as failure.

The former commissioner declared:

“I informed the state government, former governor, and all my supporters prior to my defection from the APC to the PDP.

“I am doing this for the people, and it is my conviction that Dr. Dauda Lawal, if given the opportunity at the forthcoming election to govern Zamfara State, would tackle the problem of security, boost agricultural production, and create good markets for farm produce.”
