The Immediate Past Governor of Sokoto State and incumbent Senator representing Sokoto South Senatorial District, Sen. Aminu Waziri Tambuwa, Matawalle Sokoto, has appeared before the Sokoto State Judicial Commission of Inquiry instituted by his former deputy and incumbent Governor of Sokoto State, H.E Alh Dr Ahmad Aliyu, FCNA to probe the administration of Sen Tambuwal.

Gov. Aliyu was Tambuwal’s Deputy between 2015 to 2018. He resigned on party ideologies. While Sen Tambuwal defected to the opposition party, PDP in 2018 after consulting with his erstwhile friend, now political foe, H.E Nyesom Wike, Gov. Aliyu remained in APC led by his political godfather and Tambuwal’s precedessor, Sen. Aliyu Magartakada Wammako. Gov Aliyu was to contest against Tambuwal in 2019 and lost narrowly with 38 votes
