A former governor of Sokoto State, Alhaji Attahiru Bafarawa, Wednesday said his recent visit to Senator Aliyu Wamakko had no political undertones as being insinuated in the state.
“My visit to the leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Sokoto has no political undertone whatsoever as I remain loyal to my party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP),” Bafarawa was quoted in a statement by his media consultant, Yusuf Dingyadi.

The former governor, who was reacting to a report of the Daily Trust headlined, ‘Why Bafarawa’s visit to Wamakko is raising dust’, insisted that the visit was purely for condolence.
“I remain loyal to my government under Aminu Waziri Tambuwal and committed to the PDP and have nothing to do with APC or its activities.
“Those publishing stories or lies about the condolence visit are nothing but mischief-makers, seeking cheap attention for their news outfits.
“This is not the first time that I am visiting to condole with Senator Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko during such trying times.
“Our political differences, no matter how they go, can’t affect mutual relationship and sympathy for each other, especially when one is faced with such challenges,” he said, adding that Wamakko had also visited him for condolence.
