Commissioner for Careers and Security Matters, Garba Moyi, has defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
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 is contained in a statement signed by Bashar Abubakar, media aide to Aliyu Wamakko (APC- Sokoto North) on Sunday.
The statement said Mr Moyi was received into the fold of the APC by its leader in Sokoto, Mr Wamakko and that Mr Moyi also announced his resignation from the ruling PDP and the state executive council.
Receiving the ex-commissioner, Mr Wamakko charged him to work hard in ensuring the victory of APC in Sokoto East senatorial district and the state during 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.
