SOKOTO GOVERNOR AMINU TAMBUWAL SPEAKS ON 2019 PRESIDENTIAL AMBITION

Sokoto State Governor Aminu Tambuwal says it was too early to talk about what the future holds noting that 2019 is in the hands of God.
He stated this yesterday at a media chat to commemorate the 2016 Democracy Day in Sokoto.

 TAMBUWALTambuwal, who was responding to question on his purported 2019 presidential ambition, said, “We will discuss 2019 when 2019 is around the corner; it’s too early to be talking about that, I believe that we should face what we are facing now, that’s governance and the mandate given to us by the people of Sokoto State.”
The immediate past speaker of the House of Representatives, said 2019 was not in the hands of anybody and recalled his experience at the National Assembly.
“During the process of establishing the leadership of the National Assembly, some people came to threaten me that I may have interest in 2019, and if I do what I was doing, their group won’t support me. I told them, 2019 is in the hands of God, not in your hands, not in my hands. In any case, who  is sure of getting to 2019?”
The governor, therefore, advised Nigerians to always hold their leaders accountable based on their campaign promises, saying President Muhammad Buhari had done wonderfully well in his first year in office.
He noted that the president had kept to his promises of fighting insurgency and corruption and has succeeded in inculcating the culture of cautiousness and discipline among public officers.
Tambuwal observed that people were now afraid of appending their signature on fraudulent papers because of Buhari’s zero tolerance for corruption and corrupt practices.
