REVEALED: How Makinde Avoids Another Northern Presidential Aspirant
Seyi Makinde, governor of Oyo State, has yet again refused to host a northern presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, who are visiting the states to engage delegates ahead of the May 28, 2022 convention.
Aminu Tambuwal, governor of Sokoto state and presidential aspirant, who was around for two days in the southwest was unable to see his colleague.
Recall Makinde hosted Atiku Abubakar after backlashes trailed his avoidance of the former vice-present and presidential hopeful.
Rather than wait to host Tambuwal, who is the chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum, Makinde escorted Nyesom Wike, governor of Rivers state who is also aspiring to be president, to Osogbo, the Osun State capital.
Meanwhile, engaging the delegates in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital, Tambuwal said he would ensure that equity and transparency reign, if given the opportunity to get the PDP ticket and wins the presidential election.
He said that insecurity and other challenges would be addressed to ensure that lives and property of every Nigerian were secured.
He said that his experience qualified him to lead the country to prosperity.
He implored the party delegates to give him their votes, promising not to let them down.
Commenting, Dayo Ogungbenro, chairman of Oyo PDP who spoke on behalf of the state delegates, described Tambuwal as a competent leader, capable to lead the country.
