The Sokoto State Commissioner for Careers and Security Matters, retired Colonel Garba Moyi, has defected from the Peoples Democratic Party to the All Progressives Congress.
This was contained in a statement by Bashar Abubakar, Special Assistant, New Media, to Senator Aliyu Wamakko on Sunday.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that this is coming barely 24 hours after the defection of Tangaza Local Government Council Chairman, Alhaji Salihu Kalanjeni, from the PDP to the APC.
Kalanjeni defected alongside eight serving councillors and two ex-councillors.
Abubakar said Moyi, who was appointed by Governor Aminu Tambuwal, a member of the PDP, was received into the fold of the APC by its leader in the state, Wamakko (APC-Sokoto North).
Abubakar said the Commissioner also announced his resignation from the ruling PDP and the State Executive Council.
Receiving Moyi, Wamakko charged him to work hard in ensuring the victory of APC in Sokoto East Senatorial District and the state at large during the forthcoming 2023 elections.
