A serving commissioner in the administration of Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, has defected from the Peoples Democratic Party to the All Progressives Congress.
The serving cabinet member who until his defection was the state Commissioner for Careers and Security Matters in Sokoto state, Garba Moyi Isa, cited a lack of transparency in the PDP.
This defection is coming barely 24 hours after the council chairman of Tangaza local government, Salihu Bashar Kalanjine, also defected from PDP to APC.
This was contained in a statement which said Moyi, a retired colonel, confirmed that he dumped the PDP over an alleged lack of transparency and accountability by the Tambuwal administration.
Speaking in his remarks while receiving Moyi, the leader of APC and former governor of Sokoto State, Aliyu Wamakko, enjoined the former Commissioner to be steadfast in campaigning towards the victory of APC in Sokoto East Senatorial District and the state at large in the forthcoming 2023 general elections.
Moyi was accompanied to Wamakko’s Sokoto residence by the APC deputy governorship candidate, Idris Muhammad Gobir; APC senatorial candidate Ibrahim Lamido Isa; and the House of Representatives candidate, Abdulkadir Jelani Danbuga, as well as APC chairman of Sabon Birni local government area, Yawale Sarkin Baki.
