Tambuwal suspends presidential bid, to pick gov form

The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal, on Tuesday bowed to pressure and opted out of the race for the presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress. According to Punch news, the Speaker made his decision public in a statement he signed and made available to newsmen in Abuja.

Tambuwal said the decision to suspend his bid was taken after due consultations and considerations of the overall interest of the party. He equally noted that going ahead with such a bid at this time, would alter calculations on the political chessboard of the party. The Speaker, however, stressed that he had what it takes to be the President of the country.
