ZAMFARA: Lawal confident of victory in rerun polls

THE Governor of Zamfara State, Dauda Lawal says he is prepared for the rerun election that the Court of Appeal ordered in a recent decision, emphasizing that the opposition is jealous of the progress he has made in the state in his first five months in office.

Speaking to his supporters today at the party’s Gusau secretariat, Lawal said that God had chosen him to the role of governor and that he would hold it regardless of how much “hypocrisy” the opposition displayed.

After ruling in favor of former governor Bello Matawalle of the All Progressives Congress (APC), the Court of Appeal canceled the Zamfara state governorship election and ordered a rerun in three local governments: Maradun, Birnin-Magaji, and Bukkuyum.

Lawal, however, emphasized that he would not let the opposition stop him from bringing about greater developments in the state.

The governor expressed hope that he would still win the repeat poll and urged Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) supporters in the state to maintain composure and abide by the law.

He thanked PDP members for their prayers, which he said had given him greater zeal to lead state affairs. He also thanked them for their support.
