Sokoto Elders C’ttee Okays Wamakko’s Defection To APC

5da5cacce262c9cb01ff4c17bc08e108The defection of Governor Aliyu Wamakko and “the people of the state” to the All Progressives Congress (APC) has been endorsed by a Sokoto State elders committee.
The Chairman of the committee, Sen. Jubril Gada, said this on Wednesday in Sokoto at a news conference.
Gada, a former Minister of Culture, Tourism and National Orientation, said “the entire members of the committee are in support of the defection.
“The action also has the backing of the national and state assembly members, commissioners, special advisers, leaders of the former PDP and others,” he added.
Gada noted that the committee gave its backing to the defection of the G-5 governors because it “is aimed at salvaging Nigeria”.
He said that Wamakko’s defection to the opposition party had the blessings of people of the state.
