Sokoto State Governor Aminu Tambuwal, has withdrawn from the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) Presidential primary election.
He made the announcement on Saturday, May 28th during the PDP National Convention holding at the Abuja stadium.
Tambuwal stepped down for Atiku Abubakar and asked his supporters to rally behind the former vice president.
He said; “I’m sorry to let you know that I’m withdrawing from the race today, because why we came was because the power was supposed to be zoned to the south and south-east.
“That changed and the constitution of PDP hasn’t changed. And I got the delegates’ list only two days ago, with no phone numbers. We don’t have anybody to reach.
“I want my delegates to support the best candidate that will unite Nigeria and do something for everybody.”
