Tambuwal breaks silence!I Would Have Been President Now If I Did Not Step Down

The governor of Sokoto state, Honourable Aminu Tambuwal has said if he had not changed his mind to contest the 2015 Presidential election, he would have won and become President, rather than Muhammadu Buhari.

He meant to establish that he would have grabbed the ticket of the APC and then won the 2015 Presidential election, just like President Buhari if he had  contest against former President Jonathan.
Jonathan, many believed lost the 2015 Presidential election because his government suddenly became unpopular, while Nigerians strongly clamoured for a change.

Tambuwal, then the House of Representatives Speaker had bided to contest the presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC), but backed down close to the real contest, opting for the ticket of the party for Sokoto governorship race.

The governor said it was indeed, his predecessor, Alhaji Magatakarda Wamakko who mounted pressure on him to back down on his ambition to become the President of Nigeria.

He said Wamakko told him pointedly not to run against Muhammadu Buhari on the basis that doing so would lower the chances of APC winning the presidential election as well as possibly blocking the chances of Buhari.

He said this recently during a special dinner he organised at the Sheraton Hotel Abuja for Wamakko who is now a Senator 

Tambuwal said the intervention by Wamakko had been part of what  made him  thick as a politician. He spoke eloquently about Wamakko whom he described as a builder of resources and men.

Wamakko in his response said his resolve to stop the presidential ambition of Tambuwal centered on his belief that politics is indeed, a game of interaction in which case, he said simple dialogue was required among the contestants in APC for the party to win the Presidential election.
He said his belief in peace and oneness of Nigeria with the APC’s preparedness to make changes was part of the reason he made frantic efforts to ensure that the party won the 2015 Presidential election
