The Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) in Sokoto says candidates who recently defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state would be replaced.

Ibrahim Tudun-Doki, national publicity secretary of PRP in Sokoto, said this on Sunday at a media briefing.

The development comes hours after the Sokoto PRP governorship candidate defected to APC.

Speaking on his decision for defecting, Sa’idu Gumburawa, governorship candidate of the PRP in Sokoto, had said it was to contribute his quota towards ensuring the victory of the APC in the 2023 elections.


“PRP in Sokoto state is intact and the decision taken by the governorship candidate and two others came to our notice when we saw the report in the media,” NAN quoted Tudun-Doki as saying.

“This led to our emergency stakeholders meeting today to express our position regarding the governorship candidate’s exit.

“As you are all aware, we are in a democratic system in which everyone has his own right, so we cannot deny anybody of his or her right.


“But our party is intact in Sokoto. All the party leaders, with the exception of the vice-chairman and Sokoto east senatorial candidate that joined the governorship candidate, are with PRP.

“Therefore, we want to inform the good people of Sokoto State that PRP is fully intact and will continue to pursue our mandate for the victory of our party.”

Tudun-Doki, who is also the PRP candidate in Gwadabawa/Illela federal constituency, said the state chapter would officially inform the national headquarters of the party for possible replacements.
