The defectors were led by a former Peoples Democratic Party chairman in Sokoto State, Abubakar Shehu-Tambuwal, led over 10,000 supporters to decamp to the All Progressives Congress in Tambuwal Local Government Area of the state.
Addressing a crowd of supporters on Sunday in Tambuwal, Shehu-Tambuwal said they made the decision freely based on their concern to participate in politics that would facilitate good development. He said they were convinced to join the party because of the viable policies and projects of the APC-led government, stressing that leadership and democracy should be about enhancing infrastructure and ensuring development for the people. Shehu-Tambuwal is also a former Commissioner for Education in the state.
Chairman of APC chapter in Tambuwal Local Government Area, Umar Maitafsir, said no fewer than 100,000 people from Yabo, Kebbi, Tureta, Dange/Shuni, Bodinga and Shagari local government areas had also decamped from the PDP to the APC. Maitafsir described the decamping as “a landmark in the political history of Sokoto South senatorial district,” attributing the move to Shehu-Tambuwal’s credibility and political contribution in the zone as well as in the state.
