The youth wing of the Sokoto State Market Traders Association have denounced their membership of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and pledged allegiance to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

The traders who dumped APC in large numbers at the Centre for History and Bureau, Sokoto, cited unfulfilled promise by federal government as the reason for taking such an action.

They insisted that the assistance promised to victims of the fire that ravaged parts of the Sokoto Central Market early last year by a federal government delegation that visited the state had not been redeemed.
