Aminu Tambuwal, the governor of Sokoto state and 2023 Presidential aspirant, has accused the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC of planning to make Senate President, Ahmed Lawan its Presidential Flagbearer.
Tambuwal while speaking to Party stakeholders in Lokoja, Kogi state on Monday said that the APC was only waiting to see who will emerge as flagbearer for the PDP .
“They are gradually moving away from their zoning arrangement. We know their tricks. They want to see the outcome of our primary come May 28 and 29 before they will decide who will be their candidate,”.
“Look at the APC national chairman. He is quiet about their supposed zoning arrangement simply because they already have plans to field Senator Ahmad Lawan depending on who is the presidential candidate of our party.”
“No doubt the issue of insecurity is a national issue, but it has worsened under the present administration. Any attempt to vote for an APC aspirant or candidate will worsen Nigeria’s situation. Nigeria should know that APC will continue with Buhari’s bad leadership and under-development,” Tambuwal pointed out.
“This will not go down well for our country as there is hardship in the land. We must not lose hope in this nation. Nigeria will rise again as we need a leader who will unite and not divide us.”
Tambuwal also apologized for defecting to the All Progressives Congress, APC and helping to bring President Buhari to power. He added that if given the party’s ticket, he will ensure that the APC does not return to power in 2023.
“I have apologised to PDP as I was part of the people that brought this APC to power, and I know how to take them out,”.
“Just give me your votes, the rest will be history as APC will be history in Nigeria.”, he said.
