Sokoto state governor, Aminu Tambuwal has dismissed the authenticity of quotes that were recently attributed to him saying he regrets joining the ruling All Progressives' Congress (APC).

The governor had been reported to have said that he regrets joining the party as he was being sidelined by a cabal.

He had allegedly said, "I am beginning to regret joining APC. As a governor, I knew nothing about who gets federal appointment in my state. I am seemingly sidelined by Abuja politicians."

According to a press statement released by the governor's spokesperson, Imam Imam, on Wednesday, September 6, 2017, the story is a fabrication that "has no place in a democracy".

Imam also restated the governor's commitment to remaining a member of the APC and advised members of the public to disregard any contrary reports.
