Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal has warned the likes of Atiku Abubakar and Bola Tinubu to rethink their ambitions in 2023. 

According to him, anyone above sixty should be preparing to meet God and not lead Nigeria. 

He argued that Nigeria needs a President that is fit and able to lead the nation through the many rigours of office. 

Tambuwal made the submission on Tuesday in Jigawa State after the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) in the 19 northern states ‘endorsed’ his ambition. 

The 56-year-old Tambuwal who is interested in the nation’s number one political seat is seeking the ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). 

Represented at the event by his Commissioner for Youths and Sports, Bashir Usman, the Governor said: “Young Nigerians are the owner(s) of the country, any person above 60 years is surviving to meet God Almighty – he is not surviving to lead a nation. 

“We need a president that is agile, who can travel across Nigeria in a day to get first hand information on issues bedeviling Nigerians, not a president who will sit in the comfort of his office awaiting censored information from people.” 

He argued that people with underlying sickness as a result of old age should not be allowed to become the next President of Nigeria. 

On the lingering strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Governor Tambuwal said the past and current governments have not shown enough political will to resolve the issues. 

He lamented that students should not be out of school and called for the strike to end within the shortest possible time. 

“We all know what the problems are, yet it has been lingering for more than 15 years now and up till now, there appears no end in sight. No government appears willing to solve the problems. 

“Apart from the lack of political will to solve the problems, I believe the government should engage constructively with the teachers and don’t promise what they cannot afford. That I believe is what has kept the issue lingering till date. 

“As far as I am concerned, you (students) are the ones to fight for the future of education in the country. You are the ones that will struggle for the education of this country. 

“Therefore, as long as we keep mute, believe me, our universities will remain closed for a long time,” Tambuwal submitted.
