Tambuwal Vows To Work With Anambra To Industrialise Nigeria
He urged Nigerians to strive to have a contemporary President, one like himself, who is capable of completing the job.
By Omotayo Olutekunbi
On Saturday, May 21, 2022, Aminu Tambuwal, a presidential candidate for the Peoples Democratic Party and the Governor of Sokoto State, claimed that if elected President in the 2023 general election, his government will work with the Ndigbo to industrialise Nigeria.
He stated that the cooperation will place a greater emphasis on skill development programmes to involve Nigerians, particularly youngsters, from all tribes, ethnic groups, and religious backgrounds, in order to quell agitations and other criminal activities across the country.
At the national convention of the Anambra PDP in Awka, Anambra State, the Sokoto governor announced this.
He stated that the primary reason for agitations such as Boko Haram, banditry, gunmen, and other security dangers befalling the country is young idleness and the All Progressives Congress-led Federal Government’s refusal to engage them in meaningful endeavours.
He said, “If I am elected as President, I will exhibit what I am currently doing in Sokoto State as governor. In my state today, the government under my watch pays school fees for indigenes and non-indigenes in all the public schools from primary to secondary school in the state and that is the policy I will maintain in the education sector if I am elected.”
Tambuwal stated that he was about the most qualified among those running for the highest position in the nation, having been a lawyer, speaker of the House of Representatives who handled federal problems, and governor of a state, adding that such qualities were not common among other candidates.
“I also have the competence, capacity, character, and the right temperament to handle national issues. The issues in Nigeria require somebody who is calm and has a large network of friends across the nation
“I am a pan-Nigerian. I know the challenges of Anambra State, so I can represent you well-heeled,” he added.
He urged Nigerians to strive to have a contemporary President, one like himself, who is capable of completing the job, rather than the President of 1984, stating that the difference between the PDP and the APC was the capacity to deliver the dividends of democracy to the people, as the PDP governors had done.
“As delegates, we must be very conscious of the candidate we will choose because our action will have a direct consequence on the lives of those alive and those yet unborn. It’s a very sacred responsibility which we must emphasise with every sense of patriotism, commitment and sincerity.
