The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is currently consulting with stakeholders towards presenting a candidate for the 2019 presidential election, Aminu Tambuwal, Governor of Sokoto State and presidential aspirant for the party’s ticket, revealed on Tuesday.
But Tambuwal added that if this fails, he intends to accept the outcome of the party’s presidential primary scheduled for October 5 and 6, regardless of the winner.
Tambuwal said this in Birnin Kebbi when he met with stakeholders of the party as part of his pre-primary consultations.
“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 promised to address the security challenges in Zamfara, Kaduna, Benue, Taraba as well as Kebbi if elected President.
Earlier, Musa Argungu, the Deputy State Chairman of the party, assured Tambuwal that party members would support his aspiration.
