Sokoto Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal has said he is the sellable candidate the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) needs to win the 2023 presidential election.

He urged delegates to give him a chance to lead the party to victory in the presidential election.

Tambuwal made the appeal at an interactive meeting with a Forum of former Ministers under the platform of the PDP at Asokoro, Abuja.

This, he opined “can be done only through “processes and conventions that will throw up a credible candidate.”

He said President Muhammadu Buhari does not understand Nigeria because of his clear exclusion in governance, bad economy and insecurity.

Addressing the issue of his alleged rift with former President Goodluck Jonathan, Tambuwal said their differences were misconstrued as personal.

“There was nothing personal,” he said, noting that he “had reasons to disagree” with Jonathan and also “disagreed with Buhari from 2018 because of the way he ran and is still running the country.”
