The name of the Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, is missing from those of governorship candidates for the state in the 2019 elections released by the Independent National Electoral Commission.
Tambuwal was expected to have been listed as governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) despite not taking part in the party’s primaries.
He was at the time an aspirant for the PDP presidential ticket, which he eventually lost to former vice president, Atiku Abubakar.
However, other presidential aspirants like the Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki have been given their tickets back by the party.
INEC office in Sokoto is at the moment displaying the list of candidates for the elections.
The list has Manir Dan’iya as the governorship candidate of the PDP.
There are 34 names on the governorship list.
