Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal on Thursday picked the presidential nomination form of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the 2019 elections.
Tambuwal is one of the Governors who recently defected from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to the PDP. The Governor as well as his supporters arrived at the PDP headquarters at Wadata Plaza in Abuja on Thursday evening.
This is coming weeks after he declared that he had been under tremendous pressure, to join the 2019 presidential race. Speaking with reporters after picking the form, Tambuwal was asked about going head to head against President Muhammadu Buhari’s government.
“I believe you need to check my political antecedents. I have always been confronted with this kind of hostile environment. You remember how I emerged as Speaker of House of Representatives and how I remained there as Speaker of House of Representatives.”
“So I am not discouraged by whatever that may come up as a challenge from the administration,” he replied.
