Sokoto polls: Neither Wamakko nor APC candidate called me —Tambuwal

Gov Aminu Tambuwal

The Governor of Sokoto State has denied receiving calls from Senator Aliyu Wamakko and the All Progressives Congress governorship candidate, Alhaji Ahmed Aliyu.

It had been circulating on social media that the duo had called him after he (Tambuwal) was declared the winner of the just concluded governorship election in the state.

Governor Tambuwal stated this during an interactive session with journalists.

He said, “I never received any congratulatory calls, either from my former deputy and APC candidate, Alhaji Ahmed Aliyu or Senator Aliyu Wamakko.”

 

He reaffirmed his appreciation to the people of the state over the 342 votes, by which he won the votes.

Tambuwal said, “The 342 figure difference is the slimmest victory in the history of the governorship election in Nigeria, and I promise to always remember the figure, to work tirelessly for the people of the state.”

Recognizing the impact women played in his electoral victory, Tambuwal promised them due recognition, while highlighting their significance in his administration.

He said, “In the history of Sokoto State, no government has given women recognition like this administration in appointment into the cabinet and other relatives programme for our female children.

“I did not only appoint about seven of them as special assistants, we also have three women as commissioners, while in each of the 23 Local Governments, we have three women councillors.”
