Aminu Tambuwal Wins Sokoto’s PDP Governorship Ticket


The National Working Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party has rewarded the Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal, with the party’s governorship ticket for the 2019 election.Tambuwal was among the 13 presidential aspirants of the party, who contested the primary at the national convention of the party held in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, between October 6 and 7. The primary was won by a former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, with Tambuwal coming a distant second. A member of the NWC of the party said, “We are forging ahead with our preparation and like we said, all segments of the party are being carried along. We have given the governorship ticket to Aminu Tambuwal to be our candidate in Sokoto State next year. He is a good party man and we also know that he will deliver the state to the PDP. We couldn’t have denied him the governorship ticket just because he wanted to be the presidential candidate, which he lost to another eminently qualified person, Atiku Abubakar.” The governor paid the N12m, charged by the party for its presidential nomination and expression of interest forms.tambuwalPhoto Credit: Getty
