How PDP can win elections in 2023 – Gov Tambuwal

For the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to wrestle power from the incumbent All Progressives Congress (APC) in the forthcoming elections next year, the party must strategize to actualize that vision.

Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State stated this on Monday through his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Muhammad Bello, when a presidential bid contact and consultation committee of former Senate President Bukola Saraki paid him a courtesy call.

In the statement, the governor maintained that PDP leaders are united in the quest for a credible, strong, virile, purposeful and focused leadership “with the objective of rescuing Nigeria.”

He challenged President Muhammadu Buhari, who benefitted from the conduct of such elections superintended by the PDP in 2015, to “improve the process and the electoral system in Nigeria so that, by the grace of God, when we win, he will hand over to us as a party, God willing”.

He argued that the country has been kind to Buhari as despite seizing power in 1984, he was still elected president by Nigerians hence the need for him to have the interest of the country at heart and not the APC.

“What he owes Nigeria, now…is the establishment of the security of lives and property; and, free and fair electoral process,” Gov. Tambuwal stressed.

He advised the PDP to study and analyze the recent bye-elections in Abuja Municipal Area Councils, Cross River, Imo, Ondo and Plateau states and take note of the “problems in APC and take lessons from these elections going forward.”

“We should not be carried away by winning that important and coveted Federal Constituency (Jos North) election, but we should go down and be what we are: a party of people who are skilled in politics, endowed with leaders who are very knowledgeable and skilful in the electoral processes and election management,” the Governor cautioned.

Tambuwal, who is also the Chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum, appealed to all stakeholders in the party to work together, since the objective is the same and ensure that they deliver and rescue Nigeria.
