Leader of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and a former Chairman of Sabon Birni Local Government Area of Sokoto State, Alhaji Jelani Danbuga, has defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

This was contained in a statement by Malam Bashar Abubakar, the Special Assistant to Sen. Aliyu Wamakko (APC-Sokoto) on New Media, and issued to NAN in Abuja on Monday.

Abubakar disclosed that Wamakko, who is also the leader of the party in the State, received Danbuga into the APC fold on Saturday in Sokoto.

According to him, Wamakko described the defection of Danbuga as a “welcome development and promised, he would be carried along like any APC member at all the times.”

He said that Danbuga was accompanied by Alhaji Yawale Sarkin-Baki, the APC Chairman, Sabon Birni Local Government, and a former Commissioner in Sokoto, Alhaji Ahmad Barade, among other chieftains of the party.
