Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal has said that his state will punish the All Progressives Congress, APC, at the elections for its hatred for the people of the state.

Tanbuwal stated this at the campaign rally in Silame, Sokoto state.

He further urged people of the state to vote out the APC from all levels of government.

The governor also claimed that the present administration tried to bribe him with a road construction in his village so as to restrain him from defecting to the opposition party.

He said: “When they realised I was about to leave the APC, they hurriedly packaged a road contract in my village to plead with me not to leave. We cannot continue to tolerate a government that has abandoned his people. The APC hates to invest in our people. Sokoto State will punish the APC at the elections. We will mobilise our people to come out enmasse to vote for PDP. We don’t make empty boasts like our opponents. We speak with our thumbs and PVCs and by next month, we will humble them”, he submitted.

“Sokoto is a PDP state, there is no doubt about that. No matter what some propagandists may say, this state will be delivered to PDP 100 percent. How can anyone claim that 50,000 of our solid and faithful members defected to APC in the small courtyard of Senator Wamakko. We cannot be detained by the past, especially by those who plundered the state resources and wanted us to keep quiet. By the special grace of Allah, there will be no retreat, no surrender. We will not surrender our state to people who do not mean well for our people.”
