Tambuwal Close To Joining PDP From APC
The Governor of Sokoto state, Aminu Tambuwal is reportedly close to officially returning to the Peoples Democratic Party from his current All Progressives Congress.
Naija News gathered Tambuwal is set to defect in order to realize his 2019 presidential ambition as he is said to enjoy the support of other PDP governors.
Reports by The Cable indicate that members of the Sokoto state house of assembly are expected to move with him to his new party whenever he announces his defection.
Recall Tambuwal, defected to the APC when he was speaker of the house of representatives in 2013, and does not need to resign his governorship to contest in the presidential primary of PDP.
Already, four members of the house of reps, Aminu Shehu Shagari, Kabiru Marafa Sokoto, Abdulsamad Dasuki and Bashir Salihu as well as Senator Ibrahim Danbaba, have all on Tuesday, left APC for PDP.
Naija News earlier reported that Tambuwal and some other political gladiators, had been given two weeks to complete their defection to the PDP.
