The Sokoto State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) over the weekend received the state Commissioner for Careers and Security Matters, Colonel Garba Moyi Isa (rtd).
Moyi, who was a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), sighted lack of trust and focus as his reasons for defecting to APC.
Moyi was received into the nation’s ruling party by the state leader, Sen. Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko, Naija News understands.
The development was confirmed in a statement by the special assistant on new media to Senator Wamakko, Bashar Abubakar.
Having given the decampee a warm welcome at his residence, Wamakko charged Moyi to ensure he works together with other stakeholders in the party to get victory in Sokoto East Senatorial District and the state at large during the forthcoming 2023 General elections.
Naija News understands that Moyi was accompanied during the formal declaration to APC at Gawon Nama Sokoto, the residence of Senator Wamakko, by the Deputy Gubernatorial candidate, Hon. Idris Muhammad Gobir; APC Senatorial candidate, Hon. Ibrahim Lamido Isa and APC House of Representatives Candidate, Hon. Abdulkadir Jelani Danbuga; as well as APC chairman of Sabon Birni Local Government Area, Alhaji Yawale Sarkin Baki.
Many political stakeholders were also present to witness the declaration.
In his remark, Moyi said with the quality leadership of Senator Wamakko, he does not feel like leaving the political big wig alone to undertake the affairs of Sokoto APC supporters without being associated with his giant efforts.
Naija News learnt that the Commissioner after renouncing his membership of the PDP also announced his resignation as commissioner in charge of the Ministry of careers and security matters in the state.
