27 out of 30 PDP lawmakers in Sokoto decamp to APC

Of the 30 honorable members that make up the Sokoto State House of Assembly, 27 of them who came into the house through the PDP flag today renounced their membership of the ruling party and defected to All Progressive Party (APC) which happens to be the state Governor, Aliyu Wammako's party. Governor Wammako in October 2013 defected with four other serving PDP Governors to the APC. The people that defected include Speaker of the Assembly and other principal officers

The lawmakers said they defected because they have been under immense pressure to defect to the APC by members of their constituency since their governor ditched the PDP for APC.

Speaking to Premium Times, the lawmakers said:
"We are moving in line with the decision of his excellency Gov Wammako to also move over to the APC. The PDP umbrella is torn and we have to follow the wishes of our people"
