Tambuwal visits Lamido, denies planned return to PDP


Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal on Tuesday met with former governor of Jigawa, Sule Lamido.

Tambuwal visited Lamido in his hometown of Bamaina in Jigawa.

After the meeting, Tambuwal told newsmen not to read meaning to his presence.

He explained that he only paid condolence visit to Lamido over the death of his daughter, who died late July.

“I’m here on a condolence visit, not politics please”, he said.

Reacting to a question, he said the committee set up by the PDP to contact its former members had not reached him.

”No they have not reached me. But let me restate that my

loyalty to my party, the All Progressives Congress, remains unshaken?”, he added



Tambuwal insisted that he had no plan of going back to the PDP.

There are speculations that some PDP chieftains who defected to the APC in the build-up to the 2015 general elections were planning to go back to return.

It is no longer news that Lamido, a strong member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), is strategizing to become the party’s presidential candidate in 2019.
