A former Governor of Sokoto State, Senator Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko and the Zonal Coordinator of the All Progressives Congress, APC, campaign, Alhaji Umaru Nangwari Tambuwal, have declared the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, dead in the state.
The duo said they were already doing a final burial of the PDP in Sokoto State.
Wamakko and Tambuwal spoke in Denge Town, Headquarters of Denge-Shuni Local Government during the state during APC campaign flag off.
According to Wamakko, the APC was the only party that meant well for the state and Nigeria at large.
Presenting the APC flag to the governorship candidate of the party in the coming election, Ahmed Aliyu Sokoto and Faruk Malami Yabo, his deputy, Wamakko said by God’s grace, the election is already won.
The former Governor said that APC tried to bring politicians who fear God, who love the state and who were ready to work for the state.
“This journey is for all of you. Come out en masse and ensure that PDP gets a final burial in the state. Cast all your votes for the APC.
“Cast all your votes for President Muhammadu Buhari in the coming general elections,” he stated.
Also speaking, Tambuwal said no politician in the state commands followership like Senator Aliyu Wamakko.

“APC is challenging Bafarawa today to come out and state which bank and the account number such money was saved.
“We have done our calculation and come to the conclusion that PMB is going to win in 26 states with the exclusion of Abuja.”
