Sen. Wamakko Lambasts Tambuwal Over Threat To Expose Him


Former governor of Sokoto State, Senator Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko has lambasted his successor Governor, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal.

The serving senator stated that Tambuwal was talking more than doing his job.

Wamakko said this on Tuesday in reaction to the governor’s recent threat to expose him.

A statement signed by Wamakko’s media consultant, Prof Dagaci Aliyu Manbe, advised Tambuwal to focus on good governance in Sokoto.

Manbe said the lawmaker had nothing to hide and dared Tambuwal to bring up a fight.


The statement reads: “Wamakko had a very sterling leadership record; his achievements are there to speak for him even in his absence, so it is sheer mischief for Tambuwal to threaten to expose him.

“In a civilised democratic practice, vision, capacity, experience, integrity and fear of God are the focus.

“The good people of Sokoto and Nigeria cannot agree to promote such leaders that outrightly refuse to provide good governance to people in terms of provision of basic social amenities such as schools, roads and hospitals, and employment generation, wealth creation, security, water supply, rural development, youths and women empowerment and mutual happiness”.
