With days to the 2019 general elections, the gale of defection still continues to rock the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as four serving commissioners in Sokoto state are reportedly set to dump the party for the All Progressive Congress (APC).
Tribune reports that Senator Aliyu Wamakko, disclosed this in a statement made available by his media aide, Bashir Rabe Mani. He said the names of the defectors would be unveiled soon.
The senator also revealed that the recent defection into the party is suggestive of its wide political acceptability across the state.
Legit.ng gathers that the former governor also praised the performance of the APC gubernatorial candidate in Sokoto state, Alhaji Ahmed Aliyu Sokoto.
He said the debate organised by the Hausa Service of the British Broadcasting Service (BBC) has further proved that media has a way of shaping election.
Wamakko disclosed that with the excellent performance put up by the APC candidate, the rumours that Aliyu Sokoto is incompetent to govern the state has been dusted off into bin.
He said: ''It has shown that our gubernatorial candidate, Alhaji Ahmed Aliyu Sokoto, is not a greenhorn and immature politically as being peddled by some cynics and doubting Thomases. He is fit and capable to hold the office and he will efficiently deliver the needed good governance and democracy dividends to the people of the state."
