A chieftain of the Sokoto State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dahiru Maishanu Yabo, has left the party for the ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the state.

Yabo a former Commissioner for Information as well as Solid Minerals in the state, cited lack of internal democracy, prevailing favoritism and bootlicking in Sokoto APC as reasons for his defection.

The defector was received in Government House, Sokoto on Thursday by the State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, his Deputy, Manir Muhammmad Dan Iya, the Secretary to the State Government, Hon. Muhammad Mainasara Ahmad (Mni), the state PDP Chairman, Alhaji Bello Muhammad and other government officials.

This was contained in a statement released by the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the Sokoto State Governor Muhammad Bello. 

According to him, “the APC in Sokoto has formed a cabal of which you must be a member in order to have anything to do with the party or to be involved in the progress of the nation or the state.

“By the grace of God, we’re going to support Team Tambuwal, the PDP governorship candidate in the state and all other candidates in the state under the PDP: and, even beyond, at the Presidency.

“We’re ready. We have the energy. We have the power and the resources to be part of the PDP nationwide."

The Daily Crucible reports that Yabo was a founding member of the APC and member of the defunct ‘Amaechi for President’ campaign team.

He pledged to unveil his new status and followership in his constituency within a fortnight.

He said apart from his army of supporters and grassroots appeal in Yabo and Shagari  local government areas of the state, as a former Commissioner, his reach cut across the state.

“I have been actively involved in the politics of the APC and also in governance,” he affirms.
