Political Tsunami as 252 aides of Gov Tambuwal desert him

Sokoto State governor, Aminu Tambuwal may have been turned to an orphan, as 252 aides, including Special Advisers and Special Assistants have resigned their appointments.

The aides hinged their resignation on the recent decision of the governor to dump the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

According to them, their resolve to remain in APC will not allow them to function in their respective positions under Tambuwal’s government.

The spokesman of the SAs, who addressed journalists on Sunday in Sokoto, Hon. Dasuki Haske, explained that their decision was hinged on their loyalty to the party.

“We deem it fit to state categorically that we are not ready to join Governor Tambuwal in his new party. That was what informed our decision. We will remain in APC and there is no going back.

“We are members of APC before taking up our appointments as SAs and it was based on our membership values that we were given such positions. Now, we have resigned because the governor has not performed well since inception to justify our support for him.

“We want to assure that we will work for the success of APC in the state come 2019 general election. We will work for the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari and our state party leader, Senator Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko,” Haske said.
