Further reeling out the challenges faced by Nigerians including the deepening poverty across the country, the governor said for PDP to win the 2023 presidency all personal interests must be set aside.

His words:

“I have an understanding of the Nigerian system today and can be the bridge that is all-round,” he reassures, pointing out that Nigerians are now “in a ship without a captain and it is clearly sinking.
"The collective and collectivity of all in the PDP and Nigerians who understand the gravity of what is going on to come together and salvage the country."

Tambuwal said this could be done only through processes and conventions that will throw up a credible candidate.

He added:

“We must not fail our country."

In his remarks, the chairman of the former ministers' forum, Kabiru Turaki said the group agreed to have this sensitive interactive session with him because 2023 is a very serious business.

Turaki, who said the forum had turned down similar requests from other aspirants, said there is a failure of leadership in the country.

The chairman also said that Nigerians have never been as divided as they are at the moment and there is a need to unify the people to make room for growth and development.
