BREAKING: Sokoto Governor Tambuwal Dumps APC, Joins PDP




Governor of Sokoto State and former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Twambuwal has officially announced his “withdrawal” from the All Progressives Congress, APC.

CNR Nigeria had reported on Tuesday that Tambuwal was 24 hours away from announcing his return to the Peoples Democratic Party.


Announcing his defection on Wednesday while addressing a crowd of his supporters in Sokoto “with a mixture of sadness and relief”, Tambuwal said he did not expect that the APC, “which promised so much when the Peoples Democratic party (PDP) stood under the sway of impunity, could not maintain or manage whatever good it inherited”.

He said the APC had also not broken new grounds in any positive sense, but has instead reached historically unprecedented heights of impunity in all manner of vices far above and beyond the challenges which made him and others leave the PDP about four years ago to join in the forming of the APC.

“The party has brazenly turned itself into a sanctuary for the corrupt and a machine for rigging and for the rape of democracy,” he said.

Tambuwal added that he was “returning to the PDP with a clear conscience today, because the party has learnt some bitter lessons and noted what mistakes it must avoid in the future”.
