A group of friends led by Aree Olumiyiwa Akinboro, SAN, have purchased Expression of Interest and Nomination Forms for the Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal to support his bid to contest the 2023 Presidential election on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
This is coming days the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) commenced sales of nomination and expression of interest form.
PDP national organising secretary, Hon Bature, who handed the forms and other necessary documents to the group stated that due process was followed in the sale of the form.
Speaking on behalf of the group, Aree Olumiyiwa Akinboro said the group is made up of concerned Nigerians who are worried about where Nigeria is headed and as such, want Governor Tambuwal to lead the country.
“Tambuwal is someone we have all known for 30 years and nothing has changed about him. He’s humble, focused and intelligent. People ask if he has the money to pursue this ambition. That is why we are here to buy this form for him. He’s not aware but we as professional and apolitical, we want him to lead,” he said.
Speaking on PDP’s zoning arrangement, he noted that PDP should present her best candidate and look at zoning after winning elections.
“As regards zoning, we believe Tambuwal is a native of Nigeria and this is someone who is at home in all parts of the nation. Just look at us, we have Yoruba, Igbo, Ibibio, and we are saying, PDP, put your best foot forward. You can see there is no money bags here, but the little we have, we will use it for him.
He noted that PDP has the best chance of winning the 2023 presidential election if it presents governor Tambuwal as its flagbearer.
“PDP, you have a good chance to win this election. This election will be decided by simple Nigerians and we are part of that simple Nigerians.”
