Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State has come under blast from President Muhammadu Buhari support group, the Buhari Media Organization, BMO, for saying that it would be suicidal if the President returns to power in 2019.
BMO said Tambuwal was just a “failed governor and errand boy.”
Tambuwal had, on Monday, October 15th said that he would fight to end Buhari’s rule-by-proxy in 2019. The group said that from the Governor’s speech, it was obvious that his frustrations after his unsuccessful outing as a Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential aspirant was beginning to manifest
The BMO assured Tambuwal that Buhari was in charge of the government. The group’s statement was signed by its Chairman, Niyi Akinsiju, and Secretary, Cassidy Madueke. The statement reads,
“President Buhari is fully in charge and in control of the government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and anyone who is in doubt of this is in grave error.
“We wish to note that Governor Tambuwal has not only failed to serve the people of Sokoto State diligently in the past three and half years, but has, in his utterances, displayed crass ignorance on sensitive national issues.
“Perhaps the clearest evidence of Tambuwal’s failure as a politician and governor is that he has turned himself into an errand boy of his fellow contestant, Atiku Abubakar and the opposition PDP.
“We, therefore, advise the Sokoto State Governor to stop deluding himself about his party defeating President Buhari in the 2019 presidential election as Nigerians have already taken note of Buhari’s commitment towards solving the myriad of problems confronting the country, and they are poised to re-elect him as president in 2019.”
