“Someone that can reach out and consult and build consensus on issues that concerns Nigerians. You can only do that if you have the necessary network.
“We need someone that can unify this country, someone that is pan-Nigerian, someone that understands the dynamics of modern-day governance. Someone that has democratic governance experience, in terms of either being in the executive or legislative arm of government.”

Speaking on the state of the nation, Governor Tambuwal described the administration of President Buhari as a tale of forced marriage with the country, even as he lamented the near-collapse of the nation’s economy under the current administration.

The Sokoto governor also took a wipe at the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) saying:

“We have seen that APC has not been able and cannot manage even their affairs as a party. How much more providing governance and leadership of a country as great, dynamic, and complex as Nigeria? We know the crisis in APC today.
