Why PDP Will Win 2023 Presidential Poll Convincingly: Tambuwal

Governor of Sokoto state, Aminu Tambuwal says the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will win the 2023 presidential election convincingly if he emerged as the standard bearer of the party.

Speaking on Friday while addressing members of the PDP national working committee (NWC) at the party’s headquarters in Abuja, he said he is the “bridge” between the old and young, adding that he possesses the qualities to “reconnect” the country.

Tambuwal, a presidential hopeful on the platform of the PDP, said,“This country is looking for a unifier and I believe that with my experience, I check that box.”

“I believe that if you look at my experience and my past in the national assembly, where I have spent 12 unbroken years — from being a member of the house of representatives to deputy chief whip to minority leader and the speaker of the house — I built friendship network of friends across the length and breadth of this country.

And I do, quite honestly, believe that I understand the dynamics of Nigeria.

“I understand this country very well and I have a fair knowledge of its people and their concerns. I believe that I can be that unifier that this country can accept as the candidate of our party, and I can be used by the party to win the elections convincingly.

“I believe that if the PDP should, at the end of the day, give me the ticket of the party by his grace, we will win the elections convincingly, because I am that bridge that Nigerians need — a bridge between the old and the young, and the bridge that will now continue to reconnect every part of this country. I believe I have all of those qualities.”

According to him, if elected president, he will work with the PDP NWC to ensure that the party’s campaign manifesto is implemented.

“I will make sure that we consult the party on policies and issues because we know that the NWC we have is rich enough to advise our party,” he said.

“Nobody can take it away from you, Mr. Chairman, and members of this working committee, that you have all it takes to serve as a guide and guidance to any government in this country, be that government at the federal or the state level.

“You have a lot of knowledgeable people from the national working committee and leadership of our party that we must benefit from their experience in running the administration.

“So, we will be in constant touch and consultation with the national working committee of our party so that we can proceed with the implementation of the party’s programme that we must have compiled,  because it’s not about the aspirant’s manifesto.”
