'Buhari Is Not In Charge Of Nigeria's Govt' – Tambuwal
The Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal, appears to be privy to a 'classical information'
He has alleged that President Muhammadu Buhari is not in charge of the country. Rather, he said the President ran the country by proxy.
He said it would be suicidal to allow the President to preside over Nigeria for another four years.
The former Speaker of the House of Representatives spoke in Abuja on Monday when the Peace and Reconciliation Committee of the PDP paid him a visit in his Maitama (Abuja) residence.
Tambuwal said he was not angry about his loss of the party’s presidential ticket in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, to a former Vice-President, Atiku Abubakar.
He promised to work with the national leadership of the PDP towards ensuring that the party emerges victorious in the 2019 presidential election.
He said, “I want to reassure you, our party men and women and Nigerians that I am committed to the success and victory of our party at the general elections, come February 2019.
“We have had a robust and fruitful engagement on the way forward and I have made my commitment immediately after the convention that I am going to support our candidate, Wazirin Adamawa, Atiku Abubakar, 100 per cent for us to have victory at the general elections. So, I am not wavering, I am not looking back."
He said the task of wresting power from the ruling party is not his personal ambition, adding that “all of the issues we have discussed, canvassed and traversed for during our meeting with delegates and party leaders, have remained there.”
The governor said, “The maladministration and the way the country is being run through proxies is unacceptable.
“President Buhari is not in charge. It will be suicidal for him to return to power for another four years. So, we don’t want a situation whereby that will continue anytime after May 29, 2019."
