Tambuwal Set To Defect From PDP To APC

Speaker of the House of Representatives,
Hon. Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, may be
dumping the Peoples Democratic Party
(PDP) for the All Progressives Congress (APC)
soon.
According to Punch reports, the Speaker
would dump the PDP for the APC after a
nationwide consultation which would
determine whether he would contest the
Presidency or the Sokoto State governorship
election in 2015.
Tambuwal’s media aide, Mr. Imam Imam,
disclosed that Tambuwal was still consulting
on the 2015 presidency and the defection to
the APC and the outcome will be known at
the appropriate time.
Imam said: “He is consulting on whether he
will defect to the APC. He is consulting on
whether he will contest the presidency. He is
also consulting on contesting governorship
election.”
Tambuwal was said to have given the
biggest hint about his planned defection on
Sunday in his hometown, Tambuwal, Sokoto
State, when after collecting his permanent
voter card, he was asked if he would defect
to the APC and he responded, “birds of a
feather flock together,” The Cable reports.
It would be recalled that the speaker had on
Tuesday, last week held a secret meeting
with former President Olusegun Obasanjo
at his Hilltop home in Abeokuta, capital of
Ogun State and there were indications it
might not be unconnected with his 2015
political ambition.
Tambuwal has enjoyed a strong support of
the APC members in the House, who were
instrumental to his defeat of Mrs. Mulikat
Akande-Adeola, the candidate that the PDP
backed for the position of a speaker.
