Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal and PDP presidential hopeful has warned against disaster if power is given to the wrong presidential aspirant.
He also advised party delegates in Lagos not to jeopardize the future of their children.
Mr Tambuwal, accompanied by PDP officials, said this when he met with national delegates for the Lagos chapter of the PDP chapter on Wednesday night in Ikeja.
The party’s presidential primary elections will be held on May 28 and 29.
“Don’t mortgage the future of your children, don’t mortgage the future of this country. This is the ‘Centre of Excellence’, you must go for excellence. Check all, and be guided by conscience as you cast your vote on May 28 and 29,” he urged the delegates.
The Sokoto governor said he performed well as a former speaker of the House of Representatives and governor of Sokoto.
“It is not about where you are from. It is about your person, character, competence, capacity and whether the people can trust you with power. Power in the wrong hands can destroy everything,” stated Mr Tambuwal. “You must, therefore, put on your thinking caps and think wisely as we put up measures to nominate our party’s flag bearer who can together and collectively with all of us and other leaders of our party, win the election for the PDP.”
The governor pledged not to be a dictator but rather to run a fully democratic governance.
Mr Tambuwal, who decried the level of insecurity, economic hardship and corruption, said his first priority if elected would be to forge unity in the country and give hope to the hopeless.
