Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal of Sokoto State has reiterated that no individual or group of people, regardless of their religious affiliation or tribe cannot kidnap the power in the country.


According to Tambuwal, Nigeria belongs to every Nigerian and no group can claim outright ownership of it.

He made his submission when he received the National President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Rev, Ayokunle Samson Olasupo, at the Council Chamber of Government House, Sokoto.

He said: “The leadership of the country is mutually complementary as Nigeria belongs to every Nigerian, and no one will send anyone out of the country, hence the need to remain together for the betterment of the country.

“The kind of leadership the country needs is one that will understand the issues of diversities and is inclusive in its approach to governance, without tribal or religious sentiments.

“Both Islam and Christianity have been coexisting even before the union of the country came into existence. Those who know history said Christianity and Islam belong to the same root. Jerusalem and Damascus are examples of places where the two religions are being practised side by side.”

Meanwhile, It has been alleged that permutations over the 2023 elections have overtaken the party’s ongoing consideration of zoning of offices.

It has been revealed that some frequent presidential aspirants from the North, consisting ex-Vice President Atiku Abubakar, ex-President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki, Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal and ex-Governor Sule Lamido are advocating for the retention of the 2017 formula which will make the South occupy the National Chairman’s seat.

A source spoke in anonymity with the Nation and disclosed that the movers and shakers within the PDP are scheming over the next step in the chairmanship position of the party.
