Sokoto State Governor and chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governors’ forum, Aminu Tambuwal has declared that the party is putting its house in order to reclaim federal power in 2023.
He stated that Nigerians have been deprived of dividends of democracy in all states that are not governed by the PDP.
Speaking on Saturday during the party’s national executive committee (NEC) meeting, Tambuwal added that Nigerians are already tired of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
“Whenever you hear a major event, activity or commissioning of projects, it is happening only in PDP state,” he said.
He added that “We shall continue to do our best and we assure you of our total loyalty to our party.”
The Sokoto State Governor while acknowledging challenges within the PDP, added that the party is putting its house in order and resolving all contentions ahead of the 2023 general elections in Nigeria.
“Challenges, disputation, disagreement are a part of life and indeed politics. But what is important is how they are resolved.”
“We have activated all mechanisms that we have in PDP to resolve all of our issues, and as the chairman of the board of trustees (BoT) said, we are there by the grace of God.
“We shall continue to hold together, remain together, because we are the hope of the people of Nigeria and Nigerians are looking forward to PDP, and we cannot afford to fail them.
Meanwhile, the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, had stated that stealing under the Muhammadu Buhari-led government is not done in the open.
Speaking on the legacy of the Buhari administration, the former Rivers governor said if there is stealing at all, then it is done quietly under the current government.
He told Daily Trust in an interview published on Sunday that the present administration has handled Nigeria’s resources very well.
Amaechi claimed that during the previous government someone without any means of verifiable livelihood could become a billionaire due to corruption.
