Zamfara State former deputy governor, Ibrahim Wakkala, Muhammad said that he decamped to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), for the growth and development of the state.
Wakkala, who was deputy governor between 2011 to 2019, during the tenure of Governor Abdulaziz Yari, made the announcement after meeting with his key supporters in Gusau, the state capital, on Wednesday.
He said: “There were speculations making the rounds for about two years now over where I politically belong; hence I feel this is the right time to put the records straight.
“I want to formally inform the general public that I have finally defected from the APC and have officially joined the PDP right from my Madawaki Ward under Gusau Local Government Area,” he said.
He further said: “Since the inception of the present administration under Governor Bello Matawalle, I have been playing an advisory role, especially in addressing the security issues of the state which by Allah’s grace is gradually reducing.
