The Sokoto State Governor and Director General of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Council, Aminu Tambuwal has received the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, to his state.
The governor was among the dignitaries that received Tinubu at the Sa’ad Abubakar III Airport, Sokoto on Thursday, February 9, 2023.
It was gathered that President Muhammadu Buhari and Tinubu visited the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III before moving ahead with the rally.
Speaking on the reason for the visit, Tinubu said he came to the sultan to “seek blessing and endorsement”.
“We want to win the election. And that’s what we’ve come for, to seek your blessing and endorsement,” the APC candidate said.
“And it’s something you cannot reject. I will request because the president and commander-in-chief of the armed forces is on seat. How can he be here and you’ll reject?”
