•Sokoto today: all for Wammako and APC

Pictures on Twitter and Facebook about the usually quiet city of Sokoto, showed the main roads in traffic gridlocks, as thousands of All Progressives Congress faithful awaited Senator Aliyu Wammako to address a mega rally.

Senator Wammako, a former governor between 2007 and 2015, will arrive from Abuja.

He is the de facto leader of the APC in the state and the rally was to explode the impression that incumbent Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal was a major factor.

Tambuwal, shunning the advice of Wammako, his godfather, on Tuesday, committed political apostasy by leaving the party, to join the Peoples Democratic Party, in pursuit of a presidential ambition. He left with 18 members of the state legislature and some members of the House of Representatives.

But his deputy, the three senators from the state, the party chairman refused to jump ship with him.
