Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, on Monday replied the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
The governor who recently dumped APC for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) insisted, that he has what it takes to contest against President Muhammadu Buhari under the APC.
It would be recalled that Asiwaju Tinubu had said in a statement that Tambuwal and Senate President, Bukola Saraki left the APC for the PDP, because they could not square up with President Buhari under the party for their presidential ambitions.

But in a statement on the State’s Twitter handle, @sokotogovthouse, Tambuwal said; “If I wanted to and if the Presidency is what (why) Ahmed Tinubu thinks I defected, I could contest with President Buhari under the APC. I have what it takes to have contested with Mr. President.”
“Tinubu tried to rock the boat when he was denied Buhari’s vice presidency. He thinks every other person could behave his way. If I wanted to contest under the APC as president, I could have done so and only the votes could have produced a winner.
“Tinubu is confessing that there is no level-playing ground for all members of the APC; that there is no internal democracy in it and that some people were denied their right to internal democracy”, Tambuwal said.
