The Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal is the latest top politician to defect from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), to the main opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Tambuwal’s defection, according to Channels TV, was announced at a press conference held at the government house in Sokoto, the state capital, ending days of speculations about his continued stay in the APC.
The former Speaker of the House of Representatives joins the likes of Governors Samuel Ortom of Benue and Abdulfatah Ahmed of Kwara State, to decamp from the APC in the past one week.
Tambuwal’s announcement was greeted by a large number of supporters who had stormed the government house to declare their support for him and urged him to dump the ruling party.
In the past two weeks, the APC has suffered several defections which has seen some top members like the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, Senators, members of the House of Representatives and party faithful dump the ruling party to the PDP and other parties in what is seen being seen as a repeat of the defection gale that bedevilled the PDP in 2014 prior to the general elections in 2015.
Tambuwal himself had defected from the PDP while he was still the Speaker of the House of Representatives and now, he is going back to the party that brought him to the limelight. It has also been rumoured that he is getting set to throw in his hat for the presidential race and with President Muhammadu Buhari being touted to be the sole candidate of the APC, he may have moved to enable him to contest for the number one position in the land.
