With few days to the 2019 general elections, a top official of the Buhari Support Organization in Sokoto State, Sani Muhammad Gobirawa has defected to the Peoples Democratic Party from the ruling All Progressives Congress.
The Northwest Zonal Vice President of the Nigerian Union of Pensioners in respect to his defection took along some members of BSO.
In his statement to The Nation, he claimed that he defected because he believed that PDP is the best political platform to get Nigeria working again.
He further stated that he and others that defected with him did so on a voluntary decision based on their convictions.
He urged members of the public to focus on issues in the build-up to the general elections.
“Our decision to join PDP was purely based on our firm conviction of the ability and capability of Governor Aminu’s reality and myth, as such, we don’t need the approval or inclination of any family to actualize our political aspirations,” he said.
“I have to put it straight to the people of the state and to shame doubting Thomases that as a Nigerian and an adult with my senses, I can decide on which party to join without associating my actions to any family.
“This clarification has become necessary for Sokoto people to discountenance insinuations from some quarters associated with a family issue.”
He further stated, “when I joined BSO I did not seek the permission nor associated my membership to any family.”
