A lawmaker representing Maru North Constituency in Zamfara State House of Assembly, Alhaji Salisu Yakubu, has decamped from All Progressives Congress to the Peoples Democratic Party.

The lawmaker lost the state assembly ticket to an opponent, Ibrahim Abu at the APC state assembly primary, according to the News Agency of Nigeria.

Yakubu was the only legislator who lost in his constituency among the serving members of the assembly during the APC primary.

Confirming his defection to NAN on Wednesday in Gusau, Yakubu said he was yet to explain his reason for defecting to the PDP.

“It is true I defected to the Peoples Democratic Party but I am still making some consultations before I announce my reasons for the action,” the lawmaker explained.
