Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State and Chairperson of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governors’ Forum has said that he will begin consultation “extensively” and make public his decision on whether to run for office of president of Nigeria in 2023.
Tambuwal disclosed this in a recent interview when asked if he has an ambition to contest, noting that he is a one-time presidential aspirant.
“You know that this period, we have been working to reposition the party. Without the party platform together and stabilized, what is ambition? You have to have a platform before you can talk about ambition. Now that we have almost done all the Congresses and conventions, I will come back to you after consulting in a matter of a few weeks, few months,” Tambuwal said.
“I have tried it before. It (presidential ambition) was in air in 2014. After consultation, I decided not to run. In 2018, after consultations with a number of stakeholders I threw my hat into the race. I will commence my consultation extensively now and make it public after.”
The PDP has thrown open the zoning for the presidency to all regions.
