The announment of the defection was made by the Governor at a press conference in the state Government House, on Wednesday.

Tambuwal made the announcement amid hundreds of supporters who had come from different LGAs in the state to declare their support for him.

Governor Tambuwal, on Tuesday had accused the Buhari led government of running a “prison-yard democracy” and urging Nigerians to reject the style of leadership.
