The special adviser to Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal of Sokoto State, in charge of the Marshall, the state-owned security outfit; Bello Malami, has dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Malami explained that he joined APC because of the way it was gaining acceptance in the state.
He was received into the APC fold by its leader in the state and Senator, representing Sokoto-North Senatorial zone, Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko and the Minister of Police Affairs, Muhammad Maigari Dingyadi at the former’s residence at Gawon Nama on Saturday.
Malami, however, promised to work towards the success of the party during the forthcoming elections.
Speaking at the event, the APC governorship candidate in the state, Ahmad Aliyu, said the Special Adviser came back to where he belonged after being away on sabbatical.
“You are back to where you will be held in high esteem with honour and respect. As you already know in APC we treat our members equally and with the utmost respect,” he said.
Meanwhile, another PDP bigwig from Sanyinna town of Tambuwal’s Local Government, Alh. Umaru Chori Sanyinna was also received at the party the same day.
