Ahead of the 2019 general elections, Sokoto State governor, Aminu Tambuwal has promised to pull the country from the precipice if he is elected president.
Tambuwal, who is seeking to contest the 2019 presidential election on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), said the country has not performed well under the present administration led by President Muhammadu Buhari.
The Sokoto state governor stated this on Friday, in Abakaliki, the Ebonyi State capital, during a meeting with leaders of the Ebonyi PDP and delegates from the state to the opposition party’s national convention, scheduled for October 5-6.
Tambuwal, while describing the current administration as grossly incompetent, said the federal government has turned Nigeria to a laughing stock in the comity of nations.
He said, besides the economy, which has gone into comatose under the All Progressives Congress (APC) led federal government, there is near absence of rule of law in the country.
According to him”, you know what is going on in Nigeria. I am sure we all feel the heat of the abject poverty in the country and near absence of the rule of law.
” The economy is not performing under this present administration. We are almost sliding into another recession. The unity of Nigeria has never been threatened like it is now. We need to retrieve this county from the cliff.
What is going on in the country where the fault lines are deepened should not be allowed to continue. Nigeria is now a laughing stock in the international community. ” Read more
