Breaking News: Tambuwal Picks Sokoto Governorship Form

Aminu Tambuwal, speaker of the house of representatives, on Friday picked the governorship nomination form of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for Sokoto state.
This followed his decision not to participate in the presidential primary of his new party despite the nomination and interest forms being collected on his behalf by friends and associates.

Tambuwal is expected to win the Sokoto APC  primary election having been endorsed by the kingmakers in the party.

Imam Imam, his spokesman, tweeted: Many here are chanting: “Daga Alu sai Aminu Waziri,’ meaning Speaker will take over from Gov Wamakko.

He quoted Tambuwal as saying “I’m here to honour the call of Sokoto people to return home and serve them. I am here to continue the work of our leader, Gov Aliyu Wamakko… I assure Sokoto people that if given the mandate, I won’t let them down. I will continue with the legacies of our Leader.”

After picking the form at the party’s secretariat in Sokoto, he went to the government house to thank Wamakko “for his support”, according to Imam.
