Speaker Sokoto house of Assembly defect to PDP.

Outrage as the Speaker of the Sokoto State House of Assembly Aminu Muhammad Achida, on Thursday dumped the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

According to news reports, Achida tendered his resignation letter during sitting today.

Following his decision, the legislator described Governor Aminu Tambuwal as a true democrat, praising the the former House of Representatives Speaker’s part in his switch.

It is less than a year to the 2023 general elections: Governor Tambuwal will quit office for a successor.

Expectedly, Sokoto, the seat of the Caliphate, has started witnessing the wind of political contest.

Posters and billboards of aspirants have taken spaces across the state with the PDP dominating the show.

The opposition, APC, which is no doubt equally popular in the state is determined to reclaim the mandate it lost in 2019.

However, the party is currently struggling to get out of a web of crisis rocking its structures in the state.

In line with the party’s desire to return to power in the state, some of its aspirants are already being promoted on social media.
