This is coming a few days after Tambuwal, former president of the senate, Bukola Saraki, the governor of Bauchi State, Bala Mohammed agreed to present a consensus candidate for PDP.
Governor Tambuwal in his statement on Tuesday said he has what it takes to win the presidency in 2023.
The Sokoto State Governor who described Atiku as his “uncle” said, or “I have a lot of respect for him.
“It is a work in progress. We are talking to ourselves, and we shall approach Atiku Abubakar himself and other aspirants in the PDP to see how we can all come back together to stabilise our party and reduce the tension in our party and the polity and see how best we can, if possible, work in consensus.
It has worked for us, and that was how we brought in Dr Iyorchia Ayu to be chairman of the PDP. It is not new to the PDP, especially in recent times.
“I am not saying I am better. I possess the qualities, particularly when you are talking about Nigeria of today, that can deliver the votes for PDP.”
