Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, has disclosed reasons why he stepped down his presidential ambition to support the candidacy of Atiku Abubakar at the recent presidential primary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Mr Tambuwal stepped down for a former Vice president, Atiku Abubakar, just before voting commenced. He also asked his supporters to vote for Mr Abubakar. While addressing his supporters on Friday evening at Sokoto Government House, Mr Tambuwal, for the first time, started publicly the reason behind his withdrawal.

What we have done is for the good of our party and the country. I appreciate everyone of you that prayed for me and our party. The sacrifice that I have made on your behalf is aimed at strengthening our party, our democracy, and by the grace of God, soft landing our polity.

Mr Tambuwal said, he was taught by his leaders to make sacrifice for others. Especially for the good of the country.  He called on the people of the state and Nigerians to vote for the PDP.

This is in consonance with the teachings of our leaders and the (emulation) of the examples they have given to us in the past: that we must continue to make sacrifice for the good of all of us and our country.

“I thank the people of Sokoto State and all my supporters across the country for their support. Rest assured, we shall work assiduously for the victory of our party come 2023 general election.”
