Atiku Campaign Organisation has said that it is expecting 30 per cent of delegates votes of the total votes from the Sokoto state governor, Aminu Tanbuwwal after his withdrawal .
Atiku close political associate of 18 years,Yahya Abubakar said this while featuring on a TV programme on Saturday night .
Speaking shortly after the Sokoto governor who was a presidential aspirant of the People’s Democratic Party announced his withdrawal from the race and joining Atiku ,Abubakar said the development would boost Atiku chances.
He said “We looked at the bigger picture of what Nigeria is and what the situation is .
“Don’t underestimate Tambuwal . Let us put a percentage . 30 per cent of anything around here .
“Sokoto state and the neighbouring states such as Kebbi, Zamfara ,Kaduna and North west states . Even Kano and Jigawa . He did very well.”
When asked if the outcome will not polarise the PDP into South and North , he said Atiku will not allow that to happen .
“Atiku is more Nigerian than many of us . If you want to have problem with Atiku, hide under religion or ethnicity. You are not part of him .
“I have been with him for 18 years .Atiku can never take that. In fact he is more comfortable in South than North.”
