Bandits, Terrorists, Kidnappers Working Almost Unchallenged – Tambuwal


The Governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, on Tuesday said Nigeria cannot survive another four years under the All Progressives Congress-led government.

The Chairman of the PDP Governors Forum and Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal, stated this at the opening ceremony of a two-day PDP National Retreat 2021 themed “It’s Time to Rescue and Rebuild Nigeria”.

According to Tambuwal, Nigeria must restructure its polity, economy, security and embrace relative autonomy and decentralisation of power.

He added that the main opposition party can not afford to fail Nigerians as it remains the only credible alternative to the APC.

Tambuwal noted that PDP must strategise to take over from the APC government in 2023 as President Muhammadu Buhari-led government had failed Nigerians in the past six years.


Tambuwal said, “It must restructure its polity, economy, security and ways of doing things. It must embrace relative autonomy and decentralisation of power. This will unleash the energies of our people, especially, the young. It is time to allow Nigeria to blossom. It is doable with all hands on deck.

“Can Nigeria survive another 4 years of APC? The answer is a resounding No. It is too frightening to contemplate. PDP remains the only credible alternative to APC and we cannot afford to fail Nigerians. We must keep hope alive. We can do it. Yes, we can, as Obama would say.

“A rickety vehicle cannot take Nigeria to its destination as the nation with possibilities for greatness and progress. PDP is now once again a well-oiled, serviced vehicle that will midwife the Nigeria of our dreams.

“It is indeed time to rescue and rebuild Nigeria. Nigeria is in urgent need of a surgical operation. Nigeria is in a permanent emergency. We all know what the problems are.

“They are man-made and are therefore resolvable. It requires a focused, determined, knowledgeable and patriotic organisation of like-minds to build the critical mass necessary for a great leap forward. Yes, it requires leadership, with vision and discipline.

“We suffer from a crisis of governance. The unity of Nigeria is facing unprecedented challenges. Life in Nigeria is increasingly becoming brutish and short as insecurity ravages the land.”

He said the ruling APC had demonstrated gross incompetence in managing the fortune of the country, stressing that “between 35 to 40 per cent of Nigerians are unemployed and women and youths bear the main brunt.

“Bandits, kidnappers, terrorists are having a field day, almost unchallenged. Our children are not safe even in their schools. Corruption still stalks the land. Nepotism, ethnic and religious bigotry reign supreme in today’s All Progressives Congress, APC’s Nigeria. Our infrastructure is still comatose.

“Trust and hope in Nigeria are at their lowest. Our lamentations can go on, ad infinitum. But the test of leadership is the ability to solve problems.”
