The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, will today, Monday, 10th November, 2014, picked the expression of interest and nomination forms of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to run for the presidency of the country.
Thegazellenews.com learnt exclusively that Tambuwal has received the support of his colleagues in the House who are solidly backing him because of his young age.
The Speaker who is still battling to get his security details back after being withdrawn illegally by the Inspector General of Police, Suleiman Abba over his defection from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the APC, will pick the forms at the Abuja national headquarters of his new party.
Already, his colleagues, especially those in the APC, who are currently on recess, have started coming back to Abuja to give him moral support.
Tambuwal’s entrance into the presidential race will increase the number of presidential hopefuls in the APC to five: former Head of State, General Muhammad Buhari; former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar; Chairman of Leadership newspapers, Sam Nda Isiah; and current Governor of Kano State, Alhaji Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso; have already picked their nomination and expression of interest forms to run for the presidency on the platform of APC.
