Tambuwal tasks Buhari to pursue sole legacy of free, fair election
Sokoto state governor, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to veil his monumental failure with at least one possible legacy of giving Nigerians free, fair and credible election in 2023.
He asked the president to emulate his predecessor, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan in that regard.
Tambuwal on Thursday led his predecessor, Alhaji Attahiru Bafarawa, former Sokoto state deputy governor and ex-minister, Alhaji Mukhtar Shagari, lawmakers, retired army officers and PDP chieftains from Sokoto state to a clandestine meeting with former People’s Democratic Party (PDP) national caretaker chairman, Senator Ahmed Mohammed Makarfi in Kaduna.
Speaking in an interview with journalists before his departure, Tambuwal said Makarfi has appealed to the members of the opposition party to come together, unite and take over power from the All Progressives Congress (APC) come 2023.
“That is becoming our national anthem, unity unity unity all the way. It’s only when we are united that we can have a very strong force.
“President Muhammadu Buhari, despite all the failures that we are seeing in this administration, the only legacy that is left for him is to ensure he conducts free, fair and credible election same way as President Goodluck Jonathan did ensured and handed over to him in 2015.
“The Head of the electoral umpire, INEC, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu has only one option. That option is to leave a lasting legacy. From my knowledge he is from a very good family background. So, he needs to actually make sure that he did not soil that his family history and his own personal history by ensuring he conduct a free and fair election,” Tambuwal said.
In his remarks, Makarfi admonished the PDP chieftains, stalwarts and other party members to unite and embrace one another.
He said “If we unite and accommodate each other, we will have cause to smile.”
