The Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal, has finally spoken since after losing to former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, in the PDP presidential primary election. Tambuwal congratulated Atiku Abubakar for winning the Presidential ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the 2019 general elections.
In a letter dated Oct. 8 and issued on Monday in Abuja which was addressed to Atiku, Tambuwal congratulated Atiku and pledged to support his presidential bid.
“On behalf of myself, my family, and millions of my supporters from across the length and breadth of the country, I heartily rejoice with and congratulate you on your emergence as the flag bearer of our great political party, the PDP.
“Your emergence through a transparent process is a testament to the fact that the PDP is now a reformed party and has sent a strong signal about our resolve to bring about the desired national transformation needed to turn around the fortunes of our beloved nation Nigeria,” he said.
Tambuwal promised to work with Atiku to ensure that he emerged victorious in the 2019 general elections, and urged members of the PDP to roll up their sleeves to ensure victory for it.
That is that… Meanwhile in another gist, Nigerians have taken to the comment section of a Shina Peller’s tweet to blast him for saying Atiku is a corrupt leader. The Club Quilox boss and APC House of representative candidate stated that Atiku is a corrupt leader while Buhari is incorruptible.
He also pointed out although that was his opinion and every other person is entitled to their opinion as well. And for the country to make progress, Nigerians need to move beyond the social media and take action to vote in their preferred candidates.
The Club Quilox Boss took to his twitter page to say these;
“President Buhari is incorruptible and Atiku is clearly corrupt and in as much as corruption is the basis of our problems in Nigeria, #PresidentBuhari is 100% better than Atiku.
I said what I said. My opinion is mine. Yours is yours. Do you even have a PVC? What are you personally doing to help Nigeria? Replying tweets and using abusive language is not going to make a difference.
I was born a progressive and I’m a proud member of the @APCNigeria
I stand to defend and promote the image and interests of my party as well as its presidential candidate.”
This did not go well with many Nigerians as they flooded the his comment section to react. See some reactions below;
