Immediate past Governor of Sokoto State, Aliyu Wamakko, has said that Governor Aminu Tambuwal, has become a subject of pity over his decision to dump the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The Senator representing Sokoto North, in an interview with BBC Hausa in Kaduna on Thursday, however, insisted that contrary to insinuations, he would not be decamping alongside his perceived godson, Tambuwal.
“Politics is always full of surprises, but it is pitiable for a young man like him (Tambuwal) to be make such decision in life.
“It has been long that people of Sokoto stopped running politics because particular persons are in it. And as a result of that, if someone quits and says he is leaving Buhari, that will be surprising and unfortunate,” Wamakko said.
Wamakko maintained that the APC will still remain in government in Sokoto and that President Muhammadu Buhari will win election in the state.
“If I have any issues regarding repairs of APC, leaving the party is not the ideal thing, and that won’t show one knows what he is doing.
“Issues should be ironed out, truth be identified and be worked with. The people am representing in Sokoto are in support of Buhari and their loyalty to APC is intact, and as result of that I won’t disappoint my people,” he added.
