Tambuwal said Nigeria is in its current state because the president is grossly incompetent and has no respect for rule of law.
Presidential aspirant and incumbent Governor of Sokoto state, Aminu Tambuwal has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of gross incompetence and not respecting the rule of law.
While speaking at the Ebonyi state's government house on Friday, September 14, 2018, Tambuwal said the president is not only incompetent but also lack proper understanding on the need to restructure Nigeria.
“The leadership that is in power in Nigeria is grossly incompetent. As a result, we should provide a leadership that has proper understanding about the need to restructure Nigeria and clear appreciation of our Democratic value and Democratic institution," Tambuwal said.
Kicking off his presidential campaign ahead of the 2019 presidential election in Ebonyi, the former speaker of the House of Representative said President Buhari's administration has no respect for the rule of law.
“A leadership that has respect for the rule of law. As I said the economy is bad caused by this administration and it seems we are into another recession.
“All we require is a leadership that has a listening hear and has the capacity to bring together all Nigerians irrespective of religion, tribe and we must put to an end this situation,” he said.
Tambuwal pleaded with delegates from Ebonyi state to vote for him, promising that his government, if voted to power next year would restructure the nation and its institutions.
