50,000 members of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Sokoto and supporters of Aminu Tambuwal, have defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

According to reports obtained by concise, the defectors were received by Sen. Aliyu Wammako, the APC strongman and Tambuwal’s former godfather.

Among the defectors were former Special Advisers to Gov. Aminu Tambuwal, former local government Chairmen and former State House of Assembly members, as well as many other officials of PDP in the state.

Sen. Wammako, welcomed the new entrants into the Party and assured them of equal treatment with all the existing members of APC in the state.

Wammako further said that many more members of the PDP had already joined the APC and promised to unveil them soon.

“No amount of intimidation would deter the people of the state from massively loving and supporting APC and all its candidates, at all levels.

“Moreover, in a matter of weeks, the APC will take over the state, while President Muhammadu Buhari, including all the party’s candidates, at all levels, would be massively voted by Nigerians,” he said.

He congratulated them for joining the APC and assured them of equal treatment. He promised to emulate Sen. Wammako’s leadership qualities, when eventually elected.
