Tambuwal, who was Speaker of the House of Representatives during the last administration, had contested the PDP presidential primary, where he came second.

“We have given the governorship ticket to Aminu Tambuwal to be our candidate in Sokoto State next year,” a source in the PDP had said after the primary, which was won by former vice president Atiku Abubakar.
