This is a significant development for the PDP, which has been trying to regain control of Zamfara state since the APC won the governorship election in 2019. Matawalle had defected to the APC from the PDP in 2019, which helped the APC win the governorship election.

However, Lawal’s victory shows that the PDP has regained some of its lost ground in the state. It also indicates that Matawalle’s defection did not have the desired impact on the electorate.

Zamfara state has been plagued by insecurity in recent years, with banditry and kidnapping being major challenges for the state government. Lawal has promised to tackle these security issues and improve the welfare of the people of Zamfara state.

The election was reportedly peaceful and well-conducted, with INEC receiving accolades from various stakeholders for the transparency and efficiency of the process.

The result of the Zamfara governorship election is likely to have implications for the 2023 general elections, as political parties jostle for control of states and the federal government.

In conclusion, Lawal’s victory in Zamfara state is a significant political development, and it remains to be seen how his administration will perform and address the pressing challenges facing the state.
