Governor Aminu Tambuwal’s Commissioner for Information in Sokoto state, Bello Goronyo, has dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP for the All Progressives Congress (APC).
It was learned that Goronyo announced his defection on Tuesday at the APC campaign rally in Wamakko.
According to him, he left the PDP due to many reasons which he said he would reveal at an appropriate time.
“I am here to formally inform the people that I have return to my real home, I have resolve to follow the president and Sen. Aliyu Wamakko for their integrity and developmental stride in the state,” he said.
“I want to assure you that the APC train has just started, as more and more passengers will join the journey before the forthcoming general election.
“Therefore, we will together continue to move the train to the nooks and crannies across the three Senatorial Districts of the state to enable us succeed in the general election.”
APC leader in the state, Wamakko, commended the people for their continued support to candidates of the party and call on them to be vigilant during the poll.
He said: “On election days, the electorate should also be vigilant and ensure that, only voters who hail from their respective polling units cast their votes in the various areas.
“On those days, we should also massively cast our votes for the candidates of the party at all levels, guard them jealously until the votes are counted and duly declared.
“I have no doubt that victory is ours by this impressive turnout and support shown by the people as well as keeping the momentum across the state.”
