Tambuwal Finally Dumps PDP, JoinsAPC

Speaker House of Representatives Aminu
Tambuwal has finally defected to the All
Progressives Congress (APC) following
months of speculations.
According to online news medium Premium
Times, Tambuwal made the announcement
at Tuesday’s House plenary as required by
law.
The Speaker had for a long time denied he
was leaving the Peoples Democratic Party
(PDP), apparently for fear of losing his seat
at the House, as PDP still holds majority
seat.
A close associate of Tambuwal however
assured Vanguard that he will not resign.
“He is going to announce it in plenary and he
will not resign as speaker and he will not
resign as member,” the media platform
reported on Tuesday.
Tambuwal is expected to appear officially as
a member of the APC for the first time, at the
party’s extraordinary convention on
Wednesday. He will contest for the 2015
governorship election in Sokoto State.
Nothing will be heard from the House of
Reps until December 3 as the Speaker
adjourned sitting until December 3 shortly
after his defection.
