The Sokoto State governor, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, on Thursday threatened to expose his opponents’ dark secrets should he be pushed to the wall.
Tambuwal made this threat when he was receiving a hero’s welcome to the state after coming second in the just concluded presidential primary election of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), adding that he would never desist from his good agenda for the state.
The governor warned those he accused of trying to smear his name unjustly to desist from their actions or he would be forced to expose some of their secret atrocities.
According to him, he has decided to remain calm because some leaders had appealed to him from the onset and he promised to keep to his word.
He, however, warned: “I will be forced to open cans of worms should I be tempted further. Therefore, let them be advised that they should allow the sleeping dog lie to avoid some people running away from the state even before the general elections.”
While calling on the youths to embrace politics without bitterness, Tambuwal told them that those bent on using them for thuggery do not mean well for their future.
“Prior to my becoming the governor, all of you are witnesses to the state of ‘areaboyism’ in the state, but with your cooperation, we were able to curtail the menace. Therefore, I am still appealing to all of you, the youths, not to allow yourselves to be used by anybody.
I am appealing to all politicians in the state to do their politicking with decorum. They must bear in mind that politics is about development and people.
“And I am assuring you today that, come 2019, Sokoto will freely vote for those leaders that mean well for them and the future of their children. Let them be reminded that Sokoto will not vote for leaders that destroy our youths,” he said.
Both the Sultan Sa’ad Abubakar III airport and the Sokoto State Government House were filled up with hordes of PDP supporters who trooped out to receive Governor Tambuwal back to the state.
Tambuwal, who came second in the recent Presidential primary elections of the PDP held in Port Harcourt is returned back to the state yesterday, Saturday.
