Tambuwal in his statement charged the President to withdraw Onochie who is his special assistant on social media.

The Peoples Democratic Party governor stated this while speaking at the swearing-in of members of the State Independent Electoral Commission at the Government House on Wednesday.

Tambuwal said, “the withdrawal is in the best interest of the country’s electoral system.”

He noted that Buhari’s choice of “Onochie is not right for the country’s democracy as the nominee is a well-known partisan individual.”

The Sokoto Governor further demanded that the upper legislative chamber should “reject her nomination if President Buhari fails to withdraw her nomination.”
