Sokoto: All defectors will regret their actions, Nigerians stand for APC — Sen. Wamakko

Senator-Aliyu-Wamakko

Senator Aliyu Wamakko says defectors to Peoples Democratic Party and other political parties from All Progressive Congress will regret their actions.
Wamakko stated this on Saturday at special rally in support of President Muhammadu Buhari and APC leadership organised by party loyalists following the defection of Governor Aminu Tambuwal to PDP from ruling APC on August 1.
He described PDP as a dead political, party noting that Tambuwal’s exit is not a threat to APC as APC still had two Senators, seven House of Representatives and 12 state Assembly members beside high percentage of political elders, youths, women and others in the state.
He extended President Buhari’s goodwill message to people of the state, saying that the Federal Government has executed many projects in the state contrary to the false assertion by Tambuwal.
The senator thanked Sokoto people on warm reception as well as solidarity in support of President Buhari and urged them to sustain the support to ensure victory of APC in 2019 elections.
He said: “The present political situation in Sokoto is not between Wamakko and Governor Tambuwal but between APC as a political party and the dead PDP.”
Wamakko enjoined Nigerians to shun detractors and continue supporting the good leadership of President Buhari and APC at all levels.
Also, the State APC Chairman, Alhaji Sadiq Achida, said the party is still in control in the state and will continue to do so.
Good will messages were also received from former Kebbi Governor, Nasamu Dakingari, and representative of Governor Abdulaziz Yari of Zamfara.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Wamakko was received by mass crowd of supporters which delayed the landing of his aircraft for hours at the Sir Abubakar Airport Sokoto.
