Sokoto - Governor Aliyu Wamakko of Sokoto State on Friday confirmed his defection to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Addressing journalists in Sokoto shortly on arrival from a foreign trip in Dakar, Wamakko said that he was part and parcel of the decision by the G-7 governors to defect to the APC.
Wamakko was out of the country when his G-7 colleagues announced their decision to fuse into the APC.
"I was part and parcel of that decision and I was fully involved in taking it. The decision was taken before I travelled to Senegal. We held a meeting where the decision was reached," Wamakko said.
NAN reports that Wamakko was in Dakar, Senegal, where he delivered a paper at a forum on Good Governance and Leadership in Africa organised by the African Union Commission.
