The former speaker of the House of Representative and presidential aspirant under the platform of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP), Alh. Aminu Tambuwal on Friday said the incumbent president, Muhammadu Buhari is grossly incompetent to pilot the affairs of the nation.
Tambuwal who is also a serving governor of Sokoto state pleaded with delegates from Ebonyi state to vote for him, promising that his government, if voted to power next year would restructure the nation and its institutions.
He spoke in Ebonyi state’s government house where he kick started his presidential campaign for 2019 general elections.
His words: “the leadership that is in power in Nigeria is grossly incompetent. As a result, we should provide a leadership that has proper understanding about the need to restructure Nigeria and clear appreciation of our Democratic value and Democratic institution.
“All we require is a leadership that has a listening ear and has the capacity to bring together all Nigerians irrespective of religion, tribe,” he said.
Tambuwal explained that the unity of Nigeria at present has never been bad as being experienced under President Muhammadu Buhari adding that Nigeria needs a leader with the capacity to unite all tribes.
“The unity of Nigeria as of today has never been this bad. We need a leadership that has the capacity to hold the county together and that is why I insist that we must rescue Nigeria from the hand of this rudderless government” he stated.
Governor David Umahi represented by his Deputy governor, Dr. Kelechi Igwe said that delegates from the state would follow the directive of Umahi in voting for PDP presidential candidate in Port Harcourt.
