Governor of Sokoto, Aminu Tambuwal has stated that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will win the 2023 presidential election “convincingly” if he gets the party’s ticket.
Tambuwal, a presidential hopeful on the platform of the PDP, said this on Friday while addressing members of the PDP national working committee (NWC) at the party’s headquarters in Abuja.
The Sokoto governor stated that he is the “bridge” between the old and young, adding that he possesses the qualities to “reconnect” the country.
“This country is looking for a unifier and I believe that with my experience, I check that box,” he said.
I believe that if you look at my experience and my past in the national assembly, where I have spent 12 unbroken years — from being a member of the house of representatives to deputy chief whip to minority leader and the speaker of the house — I built friendship network of friends across the length and breadth of this country. And I do, quite honestly, believe that I understand the dynamics of Nigeria.
“I understand this country very well and I have a fair knowledge of its people and their concerns. I believe that I can be that unifier that this country can accept as the candidate of our party, and I can be used by the party to win the elections convincingly.
“I believe that if the PDP should, at the end of the day, give me the ticket of the party by his grace, we will win the elections convincingly, because I am that bridge that Nigerians need — a bridge between the old and the young, and the bridge that will now continue to reconnect every part of this country. I believe I have all of those qualities.”
