Embattled Speaker, House of Representatives, Alhaji Aminu Tambuwal has picked up the gubernatorial nomination form of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Sokoto state.

“My purchase of the nomination form today has put to rest some recent speculations that I am going to contest for the governorship position in the state or not,” said Tambuwal, who was issued the forms by the state Chairman of the party, Alhaji Bala Hassan.

“I am aspiring to become the governor of the state to consolidate the achievements of our amiable leader, Gov. Aliyu Wamakko,” he said.

He described Wamakko as a committed and patriotic democrat, “who stood for the peace, unity and development of the state, the North and Nigeria in general.”

The Speaker said, if elected as a governor of the state in 2015, top on his agenda will be to work towards ensuring the even socio-economic development of the state and Nigeria in general.

“When elected as a governor in 2015 in sha Allahu, I will carry all the members of the party and the people of the state along while at Government House, Sokoto,” Tambuwal, promised.

He noted that even if the promises are not 100% fulfilled but the citizens see signs of commitment and progress, other parties should forget about displacing APC in 2023.

The former Lagos State Governor added that opposition parties are not doing better than the APC, hence should not expect Nigerians to vote for them come 2023.

He said: “Some governors have joined us, from where we think we could not get voters before. To retain power in 2023, certainly if we keep our promises, people will vote for us. It is that simple, that is politics,” the former Lagos governor said.

“If you do what you say you will do, even if you don’t do hundred percent and they see that you are making progress, they will even want you to finish what you started.”
