The Sokoto State Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal has finally defected from the All Progressives Congress, APC, to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
DAILY NIGERIAN reports that the governor made the declaration during a political rally holding in the state today, Wednesday.
Earlier, our correspondent gathered that in the state’s government house, the governor played host to top PDP leaders, including a former governor Attahiru Bafarawa, to that effect.
Recall that, just yesterday, Mr Bafarawa was discharged by the court from the fraud allegations hanging on his neck years ago.
Subsequently, the governor made the announcement at the rally.
Also in his tweet handle, the governor said: “I have consulted widely especially with the Sokoto people and they have confidently assured me of my next political move. I hereby defect officially to the @OfficialPDPNig. Power to the People.”
