2019: Tambuwal Picks PDP’s Presidential Form
NEWS DIGEST – Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal has picked the presidential nomination form of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Tambuwal is one of the Governors who recently defected from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to the PDP.
He arrived at Wadata Plaza headquarters of the party in Abuja with his supporters on Thursday evening.
This is coming weeks after he declared that he had been under tremendous pressure, to join the 2019 presidential race.
Speaking with reporters after picking the form, Tambuwal was asked about going head to head against President Muhammadu Buhari’s government.
“I believe you need to check my political antecedents. I have always been confronted with this kind of hostile environment.
“You remember how I emerged as Speaker of House of Representatives and how I remained there as Speaker of House of Representatives.
“So I am not discouraged by whatever that may come up as a challenge from the administration,” he replied.
Earlier in the day, Senate President, Bukola Saraki, also formally declared his intention to run for the presidency under the umbrella of the PDP.
