A former Commissioner for Information in Zamfara State during the administration of ex-Governor Abdulaziz Yari, Alhaji Sanda Danjari, has defected to the Peoples Democratic Party.
The former Commissioner, who left the All Progressives Congress, was received into the PDP on Wednesday by Governor Bello Matawalle at the Government House, Gusau.
According to Danjari, the outstanding performance of the governor in the area of security and good governance made him to join the PDP.
The former commissioner urged Matawalle not to relent in providing good leadership to the state and assured that he would contribute towards uplifting the state.
In his remark, the PDP State Chairman, Alhaji Ibrahim Mallaha, represented by the Vice Chairman, Alhaji Hassan Damri, said they would continue to mobilise more support for the party.
Mallaha said PDP’s door was open to receive people that would add value to it and the overall development of the state.
Matawalle had earlier expressed belief in Danjari’s capacity to contribute to the development of the PDP and the state in general.
He said the party would continue to mobilise more supporters to its fold.
