Sokoto State governor and a presidential aspirant of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Aminu Tambuwal, says the party is currently consulting with stakeholders towards presenting a candidate for the 2019 presidential election.
The Sokoto state governor disclosed this while wooing members of the party in Kebbi state on Tuesday.
Governor Tambuwal said if the consultation fails, all the aspirants would partake in a primary, and that he would accept the outcome even if it does not favour him.
“I deem it appropriate to start the visit with Kebbi state being my home as Sokoto and Zamfara,” he said.
“Our party is still consulting the stakeholders on who to present to contest for the presidential position. If the consultation fails, we will do the primary and I will accept the outcome and support whoever emerges as our candidate.
“I had left PDP for APC in view of the situation we found ourselves under PDP in the last government and joined APC for our conviction and presumption that the party would do the expected,” he added.
The governor promised to address the security challenges in Zamfara, Kaduna, Benue, Taraba as well as Kebbi if elected president.
Concise News had reported last week that the opposition party scheduled its presidential primary for October 5 and October 6. There are 13 presidential aspirants in the PDP.
