Gov. Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State has charged his supporters and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) loyalists in Zamfara to continue to be law abiding and never to take the law into their hands.

Matawalle made the call on Thursday while addressing members of All Progressives Congress (APC) who defected to the PDP in the state.

“I want to draw the attention of all my supporters and loyalists of our party, the PDP, never to do anything that will even look offensive to anyone talk less of taking the laws into your hands on any issue.

“We will not support anyone who tries to do this because we are all law abiding and we are now working tirelessly to bring our people together so that we can forge ahead as one single entity.

“I want to reiterate that it is only when we are together, living in peace and harmony that government can work for development,’’ he noted.

He stated that the effort made by his administration in addressing security and other development issues had been successful due to the prayers and understanding of the citizens.

The governor assured that the leadership would continue to bring the dividends of democracy to all communities in the state.

While speaking to the new members Matawalle expressed happiness and assured that they would be treated equally with all other members of the party.

Nigeria News Agency reports that the politicians were received into the PDP from two local government areas of Anka and Bungudu at the event.
