Sokoto state governor and presidential aspirant, Aminu Tambuwal has opined that a consensus candidate is the best option for PDP.
Tambuwal stated this while speaking with journalists shortly after submitting his nomination and expression of interest form for the presidential election in Abuja on Tuesday.
The Sokoto governor, who was represented by Nicholas Msheliza, also expressed optimism that consensus arrangement would favour him.
“Consensus is a good thing. Is healthy for the party. Our prayer, I’m thinking, is that the consensus will favour me. So far, I am the frontline aspirant, our thinking, our prayer and hope is that the consensus will go my way.”
Mr Msheliza, who said that governor Tambuwal had canvased support round the country, expressed joy on the overwhelming acceptability among the PDP family nationwide.
“For the fact that he is one presidential candidate that has traversed over the 360 Federal Constituencies of this country gives him an edge.
“He knows the demography and the geography of this country. He knows the problem of this country. He is the actual unifier. He is the bridge builder. He’s so humble.
“He is such a person that is so energetic and vibrant. He can be trusted to forge partnerships and alliances and rescue and build this nation from where we have found ourselves today.”
