2019 presidency: Tambuwal takes campaign to South West


Governor of Sokoto State and presidential aspirant on the platform of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, has taken his campaign to the south west geo-political zone, with a promise to provide purposeful and visionary leadership that will unite the country.

Tambuwal  told a crowd of PDP supporters and delegates at the Osun State party secretariat on Wednesday that there is the urgent need to provide credible alternative that would oust the All Progressives Congress (APC).

He claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration has failed in all ramifications, and added that that the country is at a crossroad, which needs leaders who could bring the citizens together and reunite them.

Tambuwal said: “We need to also provide jobs for our teeming youths and women; there is a lot of poverty all over the land. We know how PDP left the economy of this country and we know what is happening today. Don’t mind what they are telling you; it is a lie.

“The economy is not doing well. The fight against corruption is selective and there are no jobs for our people. I assure you that this ticket, by all standards and by all measures, is not going to be compared to that of Muhammadu Buhari. We have the understanding of the dynamics of the Nigerian state. There is no part of this country that I have not been to. We shall promote national unity and harmony.”

He told the delegates that he possesses what it takes to provide the right leadership in Nigeria, with the requisite energy, capacity and experience, especially having been a member of the National Assembly for 12 years.

“Four of which I was the speaker, and I am now governor of Sokoto state.  I have garnered enough executive experience to pilot the affairs of this country. I have an understanding of the workings of the executive, legislature and the judiciary,” the governor said.

In his response, a PDP stalwart, Alhaji Shuaibu Oyedokun, who is also a member of the party’s BoT, described Tambuwal as a dynamic, patriotic and legislative wizard.

Similarly, Tambuwal’s predecessor, and also a presidential aspirant in the  PDP, Alhaji Attahiru Bafarawa, has expressed satisfaction with the outcome of his tour of the six South West states,consultations with party faithful, which began in Ondo State and ended in Lagos.

A statement from the Media and Publicity Directorate of the Bafarawa Campaign Organisation, revealed that the former governor was particularly touched by the endorsements he got from leaders and stakeholders of the party in the six states.

In Ondo State, Bafarawa was excited by the reception organised for him in the residence of leader of Afenifere, Pa Reuben Fasoranti, in Akure. While with Fasoranti and other Afenifere leaders, Bafarawa told them that he came to seek their prayer, advice and blessing.

On restructuring, Bafarawa said that he is happy about the clamour because it would favour the North AND addeded that restructuring IS about development in all sectors.

In his response, Fasoranti extolled Bafarawa’s leadership qualities and perception of leadership as service and urged him to continue to serve the people to the best of his ability. He assured Bafarawa that Afenifere would identify with honesty and service which Bafarawa has in abundance.
