Tambuwal: I am not too young or too old to run for Presidency

A Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Aspirant, Gov. Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State, has said he is neither too young nor too old to run for Nigeria’s presidency by 2023.

Tambuwal spoke during his meeting with PDP former Ministers Forum, in Abuja on Thursday, April 28. He described himself as the perfect bridge between the old and younger generations of the country.

“By the grace of God, I am in the middle, not too old to run and not too young not to run.

“So, I see that bridge that is all around, not too far from the youth and not too far away from the elderly; and that is the bridge that Nigeria is looking for today that will unify this country.

Tambuwal also advised the party to be more interested in who it could sell to the electorate.

He said that the only way to rescue the country was for the PDP to produce a candidate who understood the country well through its national convention.

“What is key for PDP is a candidate that we can all work to sell together; a candidate that we can all want to sell together.

“I believe I am that candidate that we can all work to sell together and win this election.

“What is important for PDP is to be able to win elections, not where the person is coming from.”

Tambuwal said that having served as Reps Speaker, a member of the life bencher of the Judiciary; and second-term governor of Sokoto State he understood he had all it takes to rescue the country.

He said that Nigeria needed a candidate with an understanding of the dynamics of the country, with affiliations; associations, and friendships across the length and breadth of the country.

“I can assure you that I have an understanding of the Nigerian situation today. I have federal administrative experience.

“Yes, I was more in the legislature, but it is a federal government and I understand the nuances and what issues are in governance.”

He also explained why he left the PDP for the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2014 and came back to the PDP in 2018.

Tambuwal said it was not because he had a personal disagreement with any of former President Goodluck Jonathan; or President Muhammadu Buhari, but with some of their policies.

“It is all about this country, nothing personal and nothing selfish. It is about altruism, patriotism and building our country together.”
