Aminu Tambuwal, the governor of Sokoto state, has dismissed claims by a section of the media that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has been suspended.
The report claimed that the suspension was due to disagreements between Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the PDP, and Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state.
But in a swift reaction, Tambuwal described the news as fake news by some mischief-makers.
He disclosed that the campaign team would be in Kaduna on Monday, October 24.
“That is far from the truth. In fact, it is fake news. Other parties are afraid because they have not started (their campaigns). None of them have composed their campaign councils, not to even talk of starting. They are trying to throw spammer at our works,” Tambuwal said.
“They will not succeed.” It is one of those shenanigans when you see a party doing well and its candidate is better than yours. What you begin to do is to cause mischief. It is not going to work. ” We’ll run our campaign, as I said before; it is going to be issue-based. “We believe there are sufficient problems bedevilling our country.”
Tambuwal expressed optimism that Atiku and his vice, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta state, have the competence and capacity to lead Nigeria to greater heights.
