A presidential aspirant under the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Aminu Tambuwal said the collapse of the opposition party is assured if he is picked as the PDP candidate for the 2023 general elections.
The Sokoto State Governor, a founding member of the APC, stated this on Saturday while addressing the party’s delegates in Abakaliki, Ebonyi state.
According to him, the All Progressives Congress (APC) is aware of its collapse if he (Tambuwal) emerges as PDP presidential candidate.
He said “You know that it’s important and by the grace of God, that you have a presidential candidate who along with other leaders of the party, members and people of goodwill from this country can win the presidency of Nigeria.
“Someone who is electable, somebody when he comes to Ebonyi, he is at home; somebody when he gets to Kwara he is at home, when he gets to Lagos he is at home, when he gets to Akwa Ibom he is at home and when he gets to Borno he is at home; I am such candidate.
“When you give me the flag of our party, I have the capacity; I have the competence, I have the right character and temperament to provide leadership.
“Even in APC they know that once I emerge as the candidate of our great party, APC will collapse and we will win the election,” he added.
Meanwhile, he noted that the party needed unity at every level of leadership, especially at both state and national levels, in order to defeat the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
“By the grace of God, come May 29, 2023, PDP will be re-enacted in Ebonyi; PDP will take over the Government House in Ebonyi and takeover The Villa (State House) in Abuja.
“I’m sure we want to win the elections; I’m sure we want to win 2023, then we must remain united in Ebonyi and in Nigeria.
“We must nominate a candidate that is credible, that has capacity and competence to win the election along with other leaders of our great party in Ebonyi and in Nigeria,” Tambuwal said.
