Enyioha Opara, Minna

THE Governor of Sokoto State and one of the presidential aspirants on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, Aminu Tambuwal, said on Tuesday he would defeat President Muhammadu Buhari in the forthcoming 2019 general elections

Tambuwal, who said this while responding to questions from newsmen at the PDP Secretariat in Minna, stressed that he had all it would take to unseat Buhari, whom he described as analogue leader.

He said, “When you are going into a battle, you must present your best arsenals to defeat your opponent; if not, you will be overwhelmed.

“It is our collective responsibility as leaders to come together to rescue our nation from disintegration.

“The country is greatly endowed but the lack of visionary leadership to harness its abundant resources for the benefit of the vast majority account for the poverty ravaging the country.”

He added, “I left the All Progressives Party due to the impunity and clear issues of mis-governance and on the lack of respect for the tenet of democratic principles. I have since discovered that the issue of bad governance is worse in the ruling All progressives party.

“We left the PDP to form the APC; in the course of time, we began to see signs clearly that the APC itself was affected by some of those misfortunes of bad leadership. And so, we had to leave.

“That made us to start coming back to the PDP as a better alternative. At that stage, we realised that PDP was the best option to move the country forward.”

He said he decided to contest because he knew he had what it would take to make a difference.

“What I am doing is not personal or about myself but a sacrifice for my country; otherwise I can’t leave the comfort of continuing as a governor for what I am embarking upon.”

On the controversy on the venue of the PDP presidential convention in December, Tambuwal said he was comfortable with any venue announced by the party, if it satisfied the needs of aspirants and delegates.

“The decision of the venue of the convention is for the party and its organ to take, even if they choose Minna if they have the facilities, there is nothing bad about it. We, the aspirants, are only consulted for our input, not to insist on where the party will host the event.”
