Barely 24 hours after the Senate President Bukola Saraki and Kwara Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed defected from the All Progressives Congress (APC), Sokoto State Governor and former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal has also dumped the APC and rejoin the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
In an address to his supporters in Sokoto, Governor Tambuwal said that the APC has failed to meet the huge expectations of millions of Nigerians who yearned for genuine change. He concluded that “…almost four years into what ought to be a new order as desired and elected by Nigerians, the nation is unfortunately going through the most difficult and precarious times, since the civil war; with ethno, religious and regional distrust at its highest ebb.”
Tambuwal is the third APC Governor after Samuel Ortom of Benue and Abdulfatah Ahmed of Kwara to decamp from the APC to the PDP.
