Acting Inspector General of Police, Ag. IGP Suleiman Abba, has ordered the redeployment of security personnel attached to House of Reps Speaker Aminu Waziri TaMbuwal.

This was announced this afternoon in Abuja by Force Public Relations Officer, Ag. CP Emmanuel C. S Ojukwu.

The Force PRO predicated the action on Tambuwal’s defection, on Tuesday, from the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC).

Ojukwu said in a tere statement: “In view of the recent defection by the Right Honourable Aminu Waziri Tanbuwal, CFR, the Speaker of the House of Representatives of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, from the People Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressive Congress (APC), and having regard to the clear provision of section 68(1)(g) of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as amended, the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has redeployed its personnel attached to his office.”

Tambuwal’s defection is understood to be informed by his desire to run for the governorshipof his home state, Sokoto, which is scheduled to become vacant when the incumbent governor, Alhaji Aliyu Wamakko, completes his tenure. Sokoto is an APC state and Tambuwal’s chances of becoming governor are belived to be brighter if he joins the party.
