The opposition, according to Zamfara State Governor Dauda Lawal, is envious of the reforms he has implemented in the state during his first five months in office. He claims he is prepared for the rerun election that the Court of Appeal has ordered.
Lawal told his followers on Monday at the party’s secretariat in Gusau that God had selected him as governor and that he would remain in office regardless of the opposition’s “hypocrisy.”
The Court of Appeal decided in favour of former Governor Bello Matawalle of the All-Progressives Congress (APC), cancelling the governorship election in Zamfara state and ordering a rerun in three local governments: Maradun, Birnin-Magaji, and Bukkuyum.
Lawal, on the other hand, claimed that the resistance would not dissuade him from introducing more changes to the state.
The governor urged Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) supporters in the state to be calm and law-abiding, expressing confidence that he would still win the rerun poll.
He thanked PDP supporters for their prayers and support, which he said had given him greater desire to steer the affairs of the state.
