Aminu Tambuwal, Sokoto State governor, has vowed not to return to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Tambuwal lambasted the APC-led federal government for running what he described as “bad governance which has subjected Nigerians to untold hardship, abject poverty and dilapidated infrastructure”.
“God forbid for me to return to the APC for whatever reason”, he said.
The governor made the remarks on Monday, when he led other Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governors to commission the new completed Bauchi governor’s office and Government House annexes in Bauchi State.
He lamented that the bad governance of the APC-led Federal Government is negatively affecting Nigerians, stressing that everyone in the country is daily feeling the negative impact of the bad governance.
He noted that all the PDP governors across the country are performing in their various states, and called on Nigerians to always pray for them to succeed in providing good governance for their people.
“All our governors are performing to the glory of God. We seek for your continued prayers for all our governors and indeed the Federal Government, it is not performing, yes, but if it doesn’t perform, it will affect us. And it is already affecting the entirety of Nigeria”, he stated.
Tambuwal congratulated Bauchi governor, Bala Muhammed, on the completion of the Government House project, which commenced 30 years ago but was abandoned by previous administrations, saying, “it takes a person who believes in good governance to complete a project which started 30 years ago.”
“That is what we believe in the PDP, that governance is a continuum and any project that is meaningful and would add value to the lives of our people that we inherit from our predecessors, be they of the opposition or of the same party, we continue as a matter of good governance with those projects.
“And that is what Governor Bala Mohammed has done with this Government House annexe. We expected no less because you performed as FCT Minister, you performed as senator of Nigeria and now you are performing in Bauchi State. We are indeed very proud of you.
“Several of us have been here some months back to either commission projects or lay foundation of several projects that are being executed here in Bauchi State, courtesy of your administration, the sky is the limit,” he said.
Speaking at the event, the Bauchi governor thanked the PDP Governors’ Forum for taking out time to commission the project.
“We have never hosted 15 governors in our lives as a state in this part of the country and that was why we leveraged on your presence to commission this project which is partially completed,” he noted.
