2023: Tambuwal Kicks Against PDP Zoning, Backs State Police

Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State had backed the creation of State Police to tackle insecurity rocking the nation.

Speaking on Tuesday in an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today, Tambuwal promised to push for state police if elected to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.

According to the former Speaker of the House of Representatives, state policing is essential to solving Nigeria’s insecurity problems.

He stated that one of his first major moves would be to implement state policing across the country if he becomes president.

“I have an idea of what to do (to fix insecurity),” he said. “We must take it to the community level. We must go and address the issue of state policing and get security closer to the people.”

“If it means me Aminu Tambuwal as the President of Nigeria taking the bill personally to the President of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Reps, I will do so,” he said.

“Because I believe it is one of the interventions that we need as a matter of urgency to nip the issues of security challenges in the bud.”

Speaking earlier, the Sokoto governor rejected the idea of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) zoning its presidential ticket to the South.

He stated that the region of the presidential candidate shouldn’t matter but competency

Tambuwal also disclosed that he is in talks with some presidential aspirants in the main opposition to produce a consensus candidate ahead of the PDP’s primaries.
