Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal of Sokoto state has what it takes to defeat President Muhammadu Buhari in a free and fair election in 2019, according to his support group.
Tambuwal, a PDP presidential aspirant is among many other aspirants who will be participating in the party's presidential primaries in Port-Harcout on Saturday, October 6.
In an open letter seen by NAIJ.com, the governor's support group disclosed this to delegates ahead of PDP's presidential primaries.
“PDP cannot afford to have a candidate that can be thoroughly harassed and blackmailed to succumb by the desperate Buhari administration,” the group said, adding that the party had the opportunity to retire Buhari if Tambuwal got the PDP ticket.
“We realise that the decision on our party’s flag-bearer is not an easy one to make but one that must be made with all the seriousness that it demands. We have no doubt that a number of our party aspirants are qualified to be president of this country but given the key issues on ground, we cannot but put our best foot forward and this letter hopes to convince you with these three reasons why our man should fly this great party’s flag,” the group said.
