We Left PDP To Save Nigeria – Reps. Speaker Tambuwal Revealed


No doubt, the incessant defection of members of People’s Democratic Party, PDP has now become a possibility on a daily basis in Nigeria. Apparently, the most shocking defector to the opposition party, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, has explained why he and his colleagues decided to dump the PDP, for the All Progressives Congress, APC. Tambuwal explained that they would have remained in PDP and become richer but decided to leave the party in order to save Nigeria.

According to the Speaker, since 1999, the PDP had proven to be incapable of governing the country in an effective manner, adding that for Nigerians to regain their dignity and self-worth, they must join hands to vote out the party from power. “Many patriotic Nigerians who felt the need to change the course of our country have protested the inept administrative style visited on this country. 

They made their voices known by abandoning the PDP and teaming up with progressive-minded Nigerians. “Remaining in the PDP would have been the easy option for us. We would have been richer and would have been enjoying the benefits of being in the same political camp with the Federal Government. But we chose a different option because we felt enough is enough.


We felt Nigeria deserves better leadership that is why we are in the APC. “So a vote for PDP would be undignified. We must re-discover our self-worth as a people, we must move the country forward,” the Speaker added. Speaking at the event attended by traditional rulers and other interest groups at the Emirate, Zamfara State Governor, Abdulaziz Yari, commended Tambuwal and the House of Representatives for their patriotic stand on issues, and assured the people of Tsafe Emirate of his commitment to provide quality representation when elected for a second term in the coming election.

Today.ng report that a statement issued by his spokesman, Malam Imam Imam, said Tambuwal made the remarks on Sunday night when he addressed a Town Hall meeting of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Tsafe Emirate, Zamfara State.
