Tambuwal, PDP chieftains defect to APC, give reasons

The Legal Adviser of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Sokoto State, Alhaji Nasiru Sahabi Tambuwal, has defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

His defection was announced in Dange town, headquarters of Dange/Shuni local government during the flag off of the campaigns for the 2019 general elections.

Other defectors included a former special assistant to Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, Alhaji Yaro Illelar-Gajara; PDP Women Leader in Tambuwal local government, Hajiya A’in Sokoto; former chairman, Matawalle G-23 and another top notcher of the party, Alhaji Hamza Yeriman Shuni, among others.

The former PDP chieftains said thousands of their supporters across their respective wards had also moved along with them to their new party.

Speaking on behalf of the defectors, Sahabi Tambuwal and Alhaji Illelar-Gajara said they left their former party because it lacked justice and fairness.

“We joined APC because it has focus and fairness and the patriotic spirit and trustworthiness of its leaders.

“We left our party because it lacked justice to members,” Tambuwal said.
