Wammako May Join APC, Calls For Bamanga Tukur’s Sack
As the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) continues to come apart at the seams, indications have emerged that the Governor of Sokoto State, Aliyu Wamakko may dump the PDP for the yet to be registered All Progressive Congress (APC).
Wammako who returned to a mammoth crowd yesterday at the Sultan Abubakar III International Airport and Government House, Sokoto following his recent visit to The Netherlands where he attended an investment forum was reported to have held a closed-door meeting with Bola Ahmed Tinibu in Lagos.
The meeting of the Governor with the ACN Leader was said to have lasted over three hours where the terms for his joining the APC was discussed.
Meanwhile, the governor yesterday called for the immediate removal of the PDP national chairman, Bamanga Turkur, saying that only genuine internal democracy in the party can salvage the party ahead of the 2015 general elections.
He assured that himself and all his teeming supporters will continue to be in the ruling PDP.
“I have also being a loyal and proud member of the party and I have being helping in ensuring its growth and unity both here in the state, other states and at the national level ,’’ the governor recounted”.
The governor further assured party faithful that the people of Sokoto State are not fighting PDP but injustice and unfairness.
Wamakko, who recommended Bamanga Tukur’s sack on grounds of incompetence then said, ‘Tukur is running the affairs of PDP as more of a private enterprise’.
According to him, the PDP was practically non-existent in Sokoto when he took over the affairs of the party in the state, just as he recalled that the party (PDP), however, won 2011 elections in the State right from councillor to the governor.
“When we took over PDP in 2011, the party has no single elected person from Sokoto state. Today we have won all the 234 seats of the Councilors as well as all the 23 local government chairmen. We have won all the 30 members of the state house of assembly, all the 11 members of the national assembly, all the 3 senators as well as the governor and his deputy, therefore the peoples of Sokoto state are ardent lovers and supporters of Alu not PDP.”
While assuring that he is and will continue to be a proud member of the party, Wamakko noted that, PDP members in Sokoto State cannot be intimidate or harassed by whatever trick, hence the people of Sokoto State believes that is only God that can give and take away leadership.
The governor also advised President Goodluck Jonathan to sack Alhaji Ahmed Gulak, his Political Special adviser on grounds of ignorance and incompetence.
