Following the defection of the Sokoto state Governor, Aminu Tambuwal from the All Progressives Congress, APC, a party to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, his supporters in Sokoto state have begun setting APC flags and brooms ablaze in solidarity to the Governors move and rejection of the APC.
Photos and video show the supporters burning the flags and brooms.
I have consulted widely especially with the Sokoto people and they have confidently assured me of my next political move. I hereby defect officially to the @OfficialPDPNig.
Power to the People
