- The Governor of Sokoto State and the presidential aspirant under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has urged the major opposition party’s delegates in Ondo State to support his candidacy ahead of the party presidential primary election.
He said he has all it takes to crush the All Progressives Congress at the 2023 poll. He said he has a political structure and he’s well connected across all the geopolitical zones in the country. He promised to be fair to all regions in the country if elected as the president.
He promised to reciprocate what he did at Sokoto in the last seven years, if given opportunity to the party flag bearer. He noted that when he served as the Speaker of the House of Representatives, he urged the former president Goodluck Jonathan to sign the constitutional amendment bill, which could have possibly addressed some of the challenges being raised in terms of restructuring, devolution of power among others, but Jonathan failed to sign the bill.
According to him, the former president ought to have among other things permitted a thorough electoral reform, which he said would have strengthened the country’s electoral system. He said he is a pan Nigerian that would deliver the dividends of democracy that Nigerians had been yearning for.
