Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal was on Saturday evening pronounced as the Senatorial candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for Sokoto South Senatorial District.
By this affirmation, Gov. Tambuwal is now seeking to represent seven local government areas in the red chamber come 2023.
In a statement issued by the Special Adviser Media and Publicity to the Governor, Muhammad Bello, mentioned the local government areas as thus; Bodinga, Dange/Shuni, Kebbe, Shagari, Tambuwal, Tureta and Yabo local government areas.
At the well attended event, which was held in Bodinga town, Gov. Tambuwal, who consigned the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to the critical care unit of an hospital, said the PDP and its presidential candidate are poised to reclaim their pride of place as the ruling party and president of the country respectively after the general elections next year.
“I urge you, men and women, youths and the elderly to continue praying. When the time comes and the campaign commences, we must go into nooks and crannies of our villages to campaign for our candidates and the PDP; for its return to the center and its continuation here in the governance of Sokoto state.
“APC is already in ICU (Intensive Care Unit); and we know what is happening now, between today (Saturday) and tomorrow (Sunday), they have gone back to try to trace the drawing board…which they are yet to see. They are still looking for the drawing board because they are so confused as to what to do at the national convention on Monday and Tuesday.
“Either way it goes, by the grace of God, our presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar (Wazirin Adamawa), will emerge victorious as the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” he stated.
The Governor expressed gratitude to God and the political stakeholders: electoral teams from Abuja and the ones in Sokoto state; as well as the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) monitoring team, for their participation in the primary election, which simplified the process, thus making it a success.
“By the grace of Allah (SWT), we shall not disappoint you when you give us the mandate. We shall continue to build on the good work we have done.in the past and what we are doing now,” he assured.
