2023: APC presidential ticket against federal character — Tambuwal2 min read
Sokoto State Governor and Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governors Forum, Aminu Tambuwal, says the Muslim-Muslim ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC) is not only against the federal character but also unconstitutional.
Tambuwal who is also the Director General of the Atiku Campaign Organization said this in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State capital, on Monday during the official flag-off of PDP’s presidential campaign.
He called on Nigerians to vote for the party’s Presidential Candidate, Atiku Abubakar and his running mate Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, saying it is the balanced ticket that can rescue the country.
According to him, the APC’s same faith ticket will sow the seeds of discord in the country.
“PDP is presenting the most competent of all the people that are running for the presidency of this country as of today which is Alhaji Atiku Abubakar,” he said.
Tambuwal said the PDP is on a mission to rescue Nigeria and to restore its value and “I believe the other party (apparently referring to the APC) and their candidature is not only against the federal character but against the constitution of Nigeria because it doesn’t reflect the federal character of Nigeria.”
“From day one they are planning to plant a seed of discord in this country and we must not allow that to happen. We have a balance ticket, we have a ticket that can rescue Nigeria through its current situation and I appealed to all of you men and women of goodwill to join on this train of Atiku/ Okowa to Rescue, Reset and Restore Nigeria,” he added.
