There is an ongoing machination within the President Muhammadu Buhari led federal government to destroy national unity, Sokoto State governor Aminu Tambuwal has alleged.
“I am convinced that no nation can thrive while there is inequity and bad governance,” Tambuwal said.
“I am saddened by the fact that lethargy, incompetence and sustained denial of obvious leadership missteps have become the major raw materials with which the Nigerian State is being run today.
“I am unwilling to be part of frightful conspiracy against the cohesion of the Nigerian State, Nigerian youths and peoples.
“I am unable to feel at ease in the face of a progressively divided nation,” he said.
Tambuwal said these on Wednesday while announcing his departure from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC). The Sokoto governor, who is believed to be nursing a presidential ambition, has returned to the PDP.
Tambuwal said President Buhari and the APC have failed Nigeria and should be voted out come 2019.
“Let me also put it on record that all attempts to discuss the electoral promises of the APC-led government, including the restructuring of the country as promised Nigerians and as contained in the APC manifesto, have proved abortive,” he said.
