The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has cautioned Zamfara State Governor, Bello Mattawale, members of the National and State Assemblies against leaving the party.
This was contained in a statement signed by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, in Abuja, on Monday.
The party cautioned its legislators in both the National and State Assemblies against taking actions that contravene constitutional provisions.
“The PDP categorically cautions Bello Matawalle to know that his plans amounts to a decision to vacate office as no law allows him to cross over to any other party with the governorship mandate statutorily given to the PDP through the ballot box, as already established by the provision of the 1999 Constitution (as amended) and the standing judgement of the Supreme Court.
“The PDP hopes that Bello Matawalle as well as members of the National and State Assembly from Zamfara state will take caution,” the statement warns.
The party also announced the dissolution of the State Executive of the party in Zamfara State.
It said the decision is in line with the provision of Section 29 (2)(b) of the PDP Constitution 2017 (as amended).
