The decision of the Sokoto State governor, Aminu Tambuwal, to join the presidential race under the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP), got a boost as the former Secretary to Delta State Government, Comr. Ovuozourie Macaulay played host to the presidential aspirant in his Asaba hilltop residence.
Macaulay while biding Tambuwal welcome commended him for staying true to his dream of running for the presidency of Nigeria.
According to him, Tambuwal had some years back nursed the dream of running for president. “You had this dream many years back. It is good you have stayed true to it. I am happy you are in the process of achieving it.”
“I got the message of your visit a bit late hence this small gathering. What you are seeing here is a rough sketch. This is Delta State and you are welcome to my home.” He added.
Tambuwal who was on consultation visit to delegates of the PDP in Delta State, said the visit was aimed at strengthening their bond of friendship.
He commended Macaulay for the reception which he described as warm even as he appealed for his support.
