2023: Ex-APC Chairman dumps party for PDP [PHOTO]

As the 2023 election approaches, a former Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Gumbi/Wajake ward in Wamakko Local Government Area (LGA) of Sokoto State, Abubakar Rugga Wajake, has moved from the party to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Mallam Sa’idu Umar (Mallam Ubandoman Sokoto); the PDP governorship candidate in Sokoto State, was on hand to officially receive Rugga on Sunday.

Politicians from the two leading parties in Sokoto State have been locked in a game of wits, which is manifesting in the spate of defections.

Findings by this newspaper revealed that disagreements over the outcome of the APC party primary election caused some politicians to jump ship.

Notable among the Sokoto State APC stalwarts who have joined the PDP in the last two months are former Ministers of Transport, Culture, and Tourism Development, Yusuf Suleiman and Senator Bello Jibril Gada, two serving national lawmakers — Abdullahi Balarabe Salame (Gwadabawa-Illela), Yusuf Musa Kurdula (Gudu-Tangaza) and the Speaker of the Sokoto State House of Assembly, Aminu Achida.
