The Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, has said the ruling All Progressives Congress is desperate to remain in power and that is why it is trying to shut down opposing voices in the country.
He stated this in Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State, on Friday while meeting with the Peoples Democratic Party delegates ahead of the national convention of the party.
According to a statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Idowu Adelusi, Tambuwal, who is also one of the presidential aspirants of the party, said the likes of Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti were needed to take back the country from those that had hijacked it.
He also faulted the Muhammadu Buhari administration for being insensitive to the feelings and plight of Nigerians.
Tambuwal said, “I won’t be insensitive to the feelings and plight of Nigerians if elected the President of this country.
“I also promised to run an all-inclusive government. It is very important to provide dynamic leadership for our country. The government in power is desperate and doing everything outside the law to ensure they remain in power.
Tambuwal said he was in support of restructuring and that fiscal federalism must be allowed for every section to grow at their own pace.
In his remarks, Fayose said the Buhari government was only chasing shadows and deceiving the people in the guise of fighting corruption.
