After Ihedioha,Tension Grips Tambuwal Camp
The removal of Emeka Ihedioha as Governor of Sokoto state is reportedly raising cold tension in Sokoto state where the police have tightened security ahead of the guber judgement.
Checks revealed that multiple pressure is pilling up to save Governor Aminu Tambuwal after what reports called imminent negative judgement at the apex court.
The APC caucus in the state had insisted that its candidate won the governorship election despite the dismissal of its petition by both the lower tribunal and the Court of Appeal.
While Governor Tambuwal have friends in high places,the dynamic of 2023 presidential politics is reported to be working against him.
Tambuwal is regularly featured as a presidential contender by most analysts even when he has never indicated any such interest.
Unconfirmed reports also indicated that a major godfather of the governor is not in the good book of the powers that be ,thereby complicating the job of lobbyists who are running around to protect the governor.
Sahel Standard learnt that aside the said godfather ,Tambuwal also had angry powerful politicians from the state to contend with as they mostly detest his politics and style.
A source within the state APC however noted that “Tambuwal’s problem is not about politics or his backers “,noting that “the fact is that the APC candidate won and we are going to reclaim our mandate “
The judgement in the Sokoto guber case is scheduled for delivery on Monday.
