“While the large number of political gladiators in the presidential race may be unprecedented and could be overwhelming for delegates across board, the wheat can be separated from the chaff by the assessment of their evidence-based track record and undefiled antecedent.
“If the foregoing attributes of a suitable candidate that could sail the boat of Nigeria to the admirable destination is anything to go by, then I can confidently assure you that the search is over at the discovery of a man called Rt. Hon. Aminu Waziri Tambuwal.
“Having lost two consecutive presidential elections in the last seven years, now has another opportunity to elect a qualified candidate who knows his onions to face the ruling party in the contest and deliver victory to the main opposition party, hence the popular choice of Tambuwal.”
Daniel said Tambuwal apart from being a trained lawyer and life member of the Body of Benchers, has been an astute public servant and chief executive officer at two separate arms of government: legislature and executive.
He said the former Speaker of the House of Representatives is a man of unquestionable character throughout his over two-decade political career.
“Rt. Hon. Tambuwal is a true unifier who understands the country’s diversity and can manage it well as demonstrated by the handling of all the appointments at the 7th House of Representatives during his stewardship as the Speaker.
“Besides, the party needs someone like Tambuwal not only because of his stellar reputation, but capacity, competence and character, and all it takes to win an election.
“This is a passionate appeal to party faithful and delegates nationwide to take advantage of this opportunity to right all the wrongs and vote with conscience as we can’t afford to get it wrong this time.
“I plead with us to vote with nobility remembering that we have no other country than Nigeria and we are all in this ship together. It is important to note; the choice you make at the primaries will determine if the ship successfully sails to shore or sinks in the deep seas.
“Nigeria’s fate is pinned on you to present a credible and detribalized candidate. We are counting on your patriotism to vote right and ensure your votes count.”
