The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal, has picked the notice of intent and nomination forms to run for the office of president of Nigeria on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
According to his spokesperson, Imam Imam, some close associates of the speaker bought the form for him on Thursday.
“Earlier today, some friends and political associates of the Speaker notified him that they have bought the forms for him,” Mr. Imam said.
It would be recalled that Tambuwal recently defected from the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP. In response, the federal government withdrew his security detail. He was earlier tipped to run as governor in his home state, Sokoto.
