The Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party-Governors’ Forum (PDP-GF), Gov. Aminu Waziri Tambuwal of Sokoto state has stated the forum’s resolve to restore the lost face of the desired new Nigeria. He said this during the dinner that preceded the just concluded enlarged meeting of the PDP-GF in Ibadan, Oyo State, where the host governor, Oluseyi Makinde hosted five of his colleagues to a gala night in honor of the Forum.
While encouraging Nigerians not to lose hope that Nigeria and Nigerians will triumph against the evil forces working against us, he described the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) as one without the requisite national spread to represent the interest of the country, pointing out that it was part of the scheming of APC, which felt that it had no governor in the South-East, schemed the ex-governor of Imo state, Emeka Ihedioha, out of office, and brought in Hope Uzodinma. But God intervened and gave Edo to Gov. Godwin Obaseki, thus making the South-South solidly a PDP turf and rendering “APC a party without national outlook.
“That is the promise the PDP is holding for Nigeria, by the grace of God, come 2023. We are on a salvation mission; and it is part of the reasons why we institutionalize this meeting, moving from one state to the other, going forward. We were in Benue, now in Ibadan. From here, tomorrow, we shall know where we are going next.
“The situation in the country calls for everyone who is committed to the Nigerian state to put hands on deck, not only in prayers but also in action by working together to rescue this country,” Tambuwal said at the dinner.
Other governors in attendance at the gala night were Samuel Ortom of Benue, Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri of Adamawa, Diri Douye of Bayelsa and Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu.
