You are too old to rule Nigeria – Tambuwal tells Buhari

Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto state has stated that President Muhammadu Buhari is quite too old to rule the Nigeria, despite being a man of integrity and impeccable character.

According to a report by Thisday Newspaper, Tambuwal made the statement while addressing the various associations, students and youths, who paid him solidarity visit in Sokoto, the state capital, the governor admitted that pressure is being mounted on him to declare for presidency.

He, however, debunked reports that he is one of the enemies of President Buhari.

“We love President Buhari and that was why we supported him in 2015 unconditionally, and while doing that, we are too sure that he will seek re-election after his first term, but when things are wrong we have to tell him.

“We still believe in his integrity, patriotism and courage but these are not enough for a leader.

“We all know that there is a vacuum in the government occasioned by his disposition probably because of his old age or health condition. That is why Nigerians are yearning for younger ones to lead this country,” he said.
