Just as speculated some weeks ago, the governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal, on Wednesday, announced his defection from the All Progressives Congress to the Peoples Democratic Party.
Many had expected that Tambuwal would join the goverons of Benue (Samuel Ortom) and Kwara (Abdulfatah Ahmed) in moving to the PDP.
There was a large crowd of people gathered outside the Sokoto state government house in the build up to the announcement as the state government had tweeted earlier:
“Big announcement coming from @SokotoGovtHouse. Details shortly.”
In making the move official, the governor via the Sokoto Government House (@SokotoGovtHouse), tweeted:
“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”
