The Commissioner for Careers and Security Matters in Sokoto State, Colonel Garba Moyi Isa (rtd) has defected from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress, (APC).

In a statement by Bashar Abubakar, the S.A New Media to Senator Wamakko, Colonel Moyi said he decided to dump the party because he was not happy with a system that lacked trust and focus.

Moyi further explained that with the quality leadership of Senator Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko, Sarkin Yamman Sokoto, he does not feel like leaving Senator Wamakko alone to undertake the affairs of Sokoto APC supporters without being associated with his giant efforts.
