Aliyu said that the defectors from Silame, Wamakko, Tangaza, Gudu, Yabo, Shagari, Binji, and Tureta Local Government Areas, left their former party, due to neglect by the party Leaders.

He bemoaned the dearth of adequate grazing reserves, cattle routes, and water points.

The Chairman, added that the Leaders and their followers, decided to pitch their camps with the APC, and work to ensure the success of its Candidates, during the forthcoming Gubernatorial and State Assembly polls.

Sokoto State Chairman of the APC, Alhaji Isa Sadiq Achida, assured that the APC-led State Government, would accord top priority to all the basic needs of the Fulanis and their livestock.
