Tambuwal works his way back as PDP Sokoto governorship candidate

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says incumbent Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, is the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the 2019 elections.

Tambuwal finished second behind Atiku Abubakar, who emerged the party presidential candidate at its Convention held in Port-Harcourt, Rivers State on Oct. 6.

Festus Okoye, INEC’s National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education, who confirmed the substitution said Tambuwal now replaces the name of Manir Dan’Iya, earlier submitted as the party flag bearer.

It was believed that Dan’Iya, who was Tambuwal’s Commissioner for Local Government Affairs, had only held the PDP governorship ticket for Tambuwal in case he (Tambuwal) lost the party’s presidential ticket.

Dan’Iya had emerged as PDP consensus candidate.

Okoye also noted that Dan’Iya, by the substitution, automatically becomes the deputy governorship candidate of the party for Sokoto State.
