Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara who had just defected to the All Progressive Congress APC has warned his Deputy Mahdi Aliyu not to dare him.
The Governor threatened to give his deputy, Aliyu, “the treatment he deserves” if he dares him.
It is like the battle line is drawn between Matawalle and Aliyu, after the governor defected.
Recall that Aliyu has refused to follow Matawalle to APC and even addressed a rally of the PDP,
In a recent interview with the Hausa Service of Deutsch Welle on Saturday, he said that he was getting fed up with Aliyu’s disrespectful attitude.
“I won’t join issues with him. But if he dares me, I will give him the treatment he deserves,” Matawalle said, hours after the State House of Assembly invited Aliyu to come and explain why he held the rally without considering the current security situation in Zamfara State and ”in disrespect of advice by the security authorities in the state.”
There are speculations Aliyu may be impeached by the house of Assembly
The legislators have already defected from the PDP to the APC.
