Sokoto lawmaker dumps APC for PDP

Sokoto State Governor Aminu Tambuwal
A member of Sokoto State House of Assembly, Alhaji Muhammad Bashir, has dumped the All Progressives Congress, APC, for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Bashir, who lost the bid to secure the APC ticket for the House of Representatives on Wednesday, said that he has now shifted loyalty to the PDP.

He said, “I wish to formally announce my defection from the APC to PDP as provided by Section 109(1)(g) of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
Reacting to the development, Alhaji Sani Yakubu (APC-Gudu) said the lawmaker had been hobnobbing with the PDP for long.

He added that his defection did not come as a surprise.

Yakubu disclosed that even after Bashir lost the ticket for the federal constituency, the APC still returned his state Assembly ticket for him to contest.

“We wish him well in his new political party, and want to assure APC members in his constituency that his departure will translate into huge success for our party,” he said.
