Hajiya Fatima Ahmad-Aliyu, the wife of the APC governorship candidate in Sokoto state, has received some PDP women leaders who defected to the APC.
The PDP women leaders defected alongside hundreds of their followers.
The women leaders include; Hajiya Zainab Bala-Musa and Hajiya Rabi Adamu from Waziri “B” Ward of Sokoto North Local Government.
This was noted in a statement issued by the Special Adviser, New Media to Sen. Aliyu Wamakko (APC-Sokoto North), Bashar Abubakar on Wednesday in Sokoto.
The defectors as quoted by Abubakar said,”we decided to join APC as PDP failed to cater for our needs for the past seven and half years.”
They all promised to work assiduously to ensure the victory of the party during the 2023 General Elections.
While welcoming them into the APC, Ahmad-Aliyu assured to work with them at all times for the progress of the party.
Furthermore, she called on them to mobilise more women to canvass support for the success of APC during the forthcoming elections.
The APC Women leader in the area, Hajiya Hadiza Sarkin-Dutse, alongside numerous other APC members in the ward accompanied the defectors.
