This update was given in a statement on Tuesday by Bashar Abubakar, the Special Adviser to Senator Aliyu Wamakko, obtained by Newsbreak.ng. Wamakko, a former Governor of Sokoto, is the leader of the APC in the state.
According to Abubakar, the defectors, who hail from Sabon Birni Local Government Area (LGA) include the PDP Zonal scribe, one Alhaji Musa, and some ward executives.
The new members were received at Sabon Birni town by Alhaji Idris Gobir, the Deputy-Governorship candidate of the APC in Sokoto State.
