A Norther base group , Arewa Paradigm Shift, has said that the recent mass defection of the Peoples Democratic Party’s chieftains to the opposition All Progressives Congress in Sokoto State was part of strategies of Senator Aliyu Wamakko and other stakeholders to reposition the party ahead of the 2023 general elections in the state.

In a statement issued in Kaduna, the group’s Director of Mobilization, Alhaji Adamu Musa- Illela, said the leadership of the APC had met on several occasions in the state on how to boost the fortunes of the party ahead of the forthcoming general elections in the state.

They said that the first move towards the repositioning agenda spearheaded by Senator Wamako was seen when Alhaji Ibrahim Gidado, Special Adviser to Governor Aminu Tambuwal, dumped the ruling PDP for the APC and declared allegiance for the APC.

Gidado who was a former member of the state House of Assembly representing Sokoto South State Constituency 1, along with his supporters defected from the PDP for lack of focus and distrust from its leaders.
