Commissioner for Careers and Security Matters, Garba Moyi, has defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

This is contained in a statement signed by Bashar Abubakar, media aide to Aliyu Wamakko (APC- Sokoto North) on Sunday.

This came barely 24 hours after the defection of Tangaza local government council chairman, Salihu Kalanjeni, from the PDP to the APC.

Mr Kalanjeni defected alongside eight serving councillors and two ex-councillors.

The statement said Mr Moyi was received into the fold of the APC by its leader in Sokoto, Mr Wamakko and that Mr Moyi also announced his resignation from the ruling PDP and the state executive council.

Receiving the ex-commissioner, Mr Wamakko charged him to work hard in ensuring the victory of APC in Sokoto East senatorial district and the state during the forthcoming 2023 general elections.
