Nigeria former speaker of the house of representatives Aminu Tambuwal, has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of running his government through proxies.
The Governor said it is unacceptable for the country to be “run through proxies”.
This was disclosed when the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s Peace and Reconciliation Committee visited him at his Maitama (Abuja) residence.
“I want to reassure our party and Nigerians that I am committed to PDP’s success and victory at the general elections in February next year. We have had a robust and fruitful engagement on the way forward
Tambuwal was among the presidential aspirants of the PDP but Atiku Abubakar, former vice-president, won the party’s primary election.
The governor expressed his commitment to ensuring that Atiku is elected president in 2019.
“The maladministration and the way the country is being run through proxies is unacceptable,” he said.
“President Buhari is not in charge. It will be suicidal for him to return to power for another four years. So, we don’t want a situation whereby that will continue anytime after May 29, 2019.
“We want a situation whereby the President of Nigeria will be hands on, on issues of good governance, respect for the rule of law and the way this country is governed.
Chairman of the committee, Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State, commended Tambuwal and the other presidential aspirants for their understanding and spirit of sportsmanship in the party’s just concluded national convention in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
Governor Seriake Dickson insist that the visit was part of PDP’s decision to visit all presidential aspirants who participated in the last primary election with a view to encouraging them as leaders of the party in their own rights.
Dickson said the party had commenced consultations with all the aspirants and leaders of the party in it quest to recapture power from the All Progressives Congress (APC) next year.
I have given my commitment and I mean it, I am out for it. By the grace of God, we shall support Atiku Abubakar and PDP to win elections throughout Nigeria. I want to reassure you, our party men and women and Nigerians that I am committed to the success and victory of our party at the general elections, come February 2019. We have had a robust and fruitful engagement on the way forward.
“I made my commitment immediately after the convention that I am going to support our candidate, Wazirin Adamawa, Atiku Abubakar 100 percent for us to have victory at the general election. So, I am not wavering, I am not looking back. Tambuwal added”.
