Sokoto State Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal in an interaction with journalists in Sokoto said it’s too premature to begin to declare adding that those clamouring for political activities and seeking re-election are elements of distraction.
According him” It’s too premature to begin to declare my ambition.”
Tambuwal said between now and 2019 is a long journey, insisting that it was premature for him to start talking of his 2019 ambition.
” I don’t encourage anyone distracting us from governance mode to politics,” he stated.
He said such activities were only distracting mandate holders from discharging their responsibilities.
According to him” there is no reason why people should begin to jump start.”
” Is not healthy for our democracy for people to change the mode of governance to politics. It is wrong,” he said.
The immediate past Speaker of House of Representatives further said” for me, I am not in support of that.”
According to The Nation Newspaper, the governor who also spoke on the benefit of the President Muhammadu Buhari adminstration to Sokoto state and Nigeria, said the APC led government has successfully reversed a lot of negative activities threatening the security, economy and financial state of the country.
” Boko Haram and their activities have been subdued. What we are experiencing now is sporadic attacks confined to few places within Borno and Adamawa states.
” The fight against corruption has been fully domesticated with impact nationwide.
” Our economy is fast improving with positive outcomes against recession. A lot has been achieved in the area of infrastructure especially roads.
” Sokoto -Illela, Sokoto-Gusau, Sokoto-Tambuwal-Jega roads among others are fast in good conditions”, he pointed out.
