Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal of Sokoto state has defected from the ruling All Progressives Congress to Peoples Democratic Party.

Tambuwal who has a presidential ambition, called on Nigerians to vote out President Muhammadu Buhari in next year’s election.

He said Buhari had failed to solve the problems of insecurity, job losses and poverty and also failed to unite the country.

He made the declaration at an event at the Sokoto government house where he addressed his supporters.

“It is because I am convinced that no nation can thrive while there is inequity and bad governance; because I am saddened by the fact that lethargy, incompetence and sustained denial of obvious leadership missteps have become the major raw materials with which the Nigerian State is being run today; because I am unwilling to be part of frightful conspiracy against the cohesion of the Nigerian State, Nigerian youths and peoples; because I am unable to feel at ease in the face of a progressively divided nation and, above all, because I am totally unable to reconcile myself to a national leadership that offers no redeeming moral beacons that I am here with you today; to announce withdrawal of my membership of the All Progressives Congress and return to the People’s Democratic Party,” he said.
