Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, on Wednesday stated that he is under pressure to run for president in 2019.

Tambuwal admitted this while addressing different associations of students and youths, as well as resident communities, who paid him a solidarity visit on Wednesday.

“I have been receiving advices and encouragement from our leaders, peoples across the country and even from abroad to contest for presidency and this pressure is being mounting.

“It Is not my making but the quantum of pressure from every where because of leadership gap in the country,” he said.

Tambuwal also said he would make his position public on the matter “in days to come”.

The Governor recently defected from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
