2015 Presidential Election: I Am Still Consulting – Tambuwal

Speaker of the House of Representatives, Alhaji Aminu Tambuwal, yesterday, said he was consulting with “senior” leaders across the country to determine his political direction in 2015.

There is the speculation that the House Speaker may dump the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressives Congress (APC), where he is expected to vie for the presidential ticket. He therefore said it was the reason he decided to consult with leaders across the country in order not to make mistakes.

The Speaker spoke at the residence of the Deputy Governor of Edo State, Dr Pius Odubu, before attending the wedding ceremony of the son of the Oba of Benin, Prince Ehioze Erediauwa, and his wife, Chioma.

“When I went to collect my voter’s card, I said I was consulting and I am still consulting. Nigeria is not a small country, we have very very senior leaders that one need to meet with before taking such decisions. As I said, I am consulting and at the appropriate time, I will come out to say what I will be doing in 2015,” Tambuwal said.

Reacting to the efforts being made by the Federal Government to curb insurgency in the North-east, he urged Nigerians to give support to the military to succeed.
