The Chairman of Matawalle Support Organization in Sokoto, Alhaji Anas Waziri and his supporters have dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.
Bashar Abubakar, the Special Assistant on New Media to the state’s former governor, Aliyu Wamakko, confirmed the development in a statement on Sunday in Sokoto.
Waziri said he dumped the PDP because of failed promises.
He said: “Our exit from PDP is a sign of victory for APC because of its acceptability across the board.
“More PDP members are on the verge of migrating to APC.”
He described the APC governorship candidate in Sokoto, Alhaji Ahmad Aliyu, as the best choice for the people of the state.
Aliyu, who received the defectors at an event in the state capital, assured them that they would be carried along like other members of the party.
He also promised to run an all-inclusive government if elected as governor of the state.
