The Presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Aminu Tambuwal has described the All Progressive Congress, APC, administration led by President Muhammadu Buhari as a government of grossly incompetent people.
Tambuwal, who is the governor of Sokoto state, made this known in Abakaliki during his consultation visit to the governor of Ebonyi state, Chief David Umahi.
He said: “This is a mission to the rescue or retrieving of our country from the hands of a click that is at the moment. You know what is going on in Nigeria. I am sure that all of you are feeling the heat of the level of abject poverty, of no absence of the rule of law. And indeed the abuse of power by the current administration.
“Obviously there is a need for us to have a completely different leadership at the centre come February 2019. A number of us in PDP have indicated interest to be the Presidential flag bearer of the People Democratic Party, PDP.
“Ebonyi state is the first state we are visiting. This is because Governor David Umahi is the chairman of the south east governors’ forum.
“The leadership that is in power in Nigeria is grossly incompetent. As a result, we should provide a leadership that has proper understanding about the need to restructure Nigeria and clear appreciation of our Democratic value and Democratic institution. A leadership that has respect for the rule of law. As I said the economy is bad caused by this administration and it seems we are into another recession.
“All we require is a leadership that has a listening hear and has the capacity to bring together all Nigerians irrespective of religion, tribe and we must put to an end this situation.
“The unity of Nigeria as of today has never been this bad. We need a leadership that has the capacity to hold the county together and that is why I insist that we must rescue Nigeria from the hand of a clique,” he stated.
