Tambuwal Replies Tinubu Over His Defection To PDP ▷ Naija News

My Defection To PDP Has Noting To Do With Automatic Ticket

Sokoto State Governor, has revealed he could defeat President  to the 2019 presidential ticket of the APC if he remained in the party.

According to him, he has what it takes to compete with and defeat Buhari.

He said this in a series of tweets in reaction to Tinubu’s statement on why he defected from the All Progressives Congress to Peoples Democratic Party.

“Tinubu tried to rock the boat when he was denied Buhari’s vice Presidency. He thinks every other person could behave his way. If I wanted to contest under the APC as president, I could have done so and only the votes could have produced a winner”.

“I adduced reasons of my defection to the PDP. The reasons are still on record. Automatic ticket by the APC is certainly not part of that. ”

As earlier reported by Naija News, APC National Leader, Ahmed Tinubu, had submitted that Tambuwal and Senate President Bukola Saraki, dumped the APC because they were denied automatic ticket.

“Tinubu tried to rock the boat when he was denied Buhari’s vice presidency. He thinks every other person could behave his way. If I wanted to contest under the APC as president, I could have done so and only the votes could have produced a winner.

“In any case, Tinubu is confessing that there is no level-playing ground for all members of the APC; that there is no internal democracy in it and that some people were denied their right to internal democracy”.

@AWTambuwal stressed that while addressing the people of Sokoto State and by implication, Nigerians, he stated his reasons for leaving the party none of which was “automatic ticket.”
