#NigeriaDecides2019: Tambuwal Gives Condition For Accepting Results
Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State has said he is “so far” satisfied with the conduct of the presidential and National Assembly elections but insists the Peoples Democratic Party will only accept results of a transparent election.
Tambuwal expressed his satisfaction with the exercise after casting his vote at Unit 011, JNI Nizamiyyah Islamic School in Tambuwal, Tambuwal Local Government Area of Sokoto State.
The governor, who arrived at the unit at 11:40am, was immediately accredited, after which he cast his vote. The process lasted less than 10 minutes.
Addressing journalists, Tambuwal said, “First of all, we want to thank the Almighty God who has spared our lives to witness this very momentous event in the annals of the history of our country. It is a very major democratic development.
“As you can see here particularly at this polling unit, the voters’ turnout is very massive; it is very large. That clearly underscores the enthusiasm and the interest of the people of this community in who governs them, and in a free, fair, transparent, credible democratic process.”
Asked if he was satisfied with the election after its postponement by a week, the governor said, “So far, from what I have seen and from the reports I have received, I am satisfied and by the grace of God, we shall have good elections in Nigeria.”
Responding to a question whether the PDP would accept the result of the poll, he said, “We are very prepared. We believe in a free, fair and credible process. By the time it is clear to us that the process has been transparent, we will accept the result, whatever the outcome may be.”ALSO WATCH TONY AND JONA ON BOUNCE DAILY ROUND
