Sokoto State governor, Aminu Tambuwal, believes one of the biggest problems with Nigerian politics is the lack of an ideological identity of its political parties.
When asked why party loyalty did not stop him from making such a move to another party, he said parties are just a means to getting people into elective offices.
He said, “The problem is that none of these political parties is ideologically-based. Political parties in Nigeria are mere vehicles, conveyor belts that convey people to various elective offices.”
Since 2003, the governor has defected to the Democratic People’s Party (DPP), returned to the ANPP, before returning to the PDP, too.
He defected to the All Progressives’ Congress (APC) in 2014 and was elected Sokoto governor in 2015 after serving as the Speaker of the House of Representatives.
