PDP Consensus Failed. Tambuwal says I’m Not Part of Any Agreement

Governor Tambuwal’s Presidential Campaign Organization (TCO) has dissociate itself from from a trending news item that former Senate President, Bukola Saraki and Gov. Bala Muhammad of Bauchi state have emerged as consensus candidates from amongst the four of the PDP Presidential aspirants as announced at a meeting in Minna, Niger state.
According to the Director of Tambuwal’s Organization and Mobilization TCO Nicholas Msheliza the information is not correct.
The correct situation is that the team met on Wednesday 20th April, 2022, at Bauchi Governor’s lodge in Abuja where they had a review meeting and, unanimously agreed that the consensus arrangement was not working.
The team further agreed that Sen. Saraki should come up with a draft statement on how to communicate this decision to the Nigerian public.
“This was the last time that members of the team sat and mutually agreed on anything.” Msheliza disclosed 
The proposed meeting to review and vet the statement scheduled for 10 pm of the same day was aborted unilaterally by Sen. Saraki via a WhatsApp message. 
However, on Thursday, 21st, 2022, same Sen Saraki circulated yet another WhatsApp message suggesting that members of the team should head to Minna for a meeting on Friday, Gov.
 Tambuwal reached other members of the team and informed them that he stands by the decision of the team that the initiative is not working. 
This is the reason Gov. Tambuwal was absent at Friday’s meeting in Minna. “As a result therefore, the outcome of the Minna meeting has no consequence or any implication on the aspiration of Gov. Tambuwal, who had earlier on informed his colleagues of maintaining their agreed position that the initiative has collapsed.”
Members of the public, Msheliza advised should be reminded that what was canvassed for was a consensus candidate and not consensus  candidates.
“For the avoidance of doubt, Gov Tambuwal has submitted his Presidential nomination forms and now that the quest for a consensus candidate out of the four has clearly collapsed, will go ahead and face screening and indeed contest the PDP presidential primaries.”
“This is in consonance with his acclaimed outlook as a pan-Nigerian candidate, with pedigree of national service as the Speaker of the Federal House of Representatives, life member of the Body of Benchers and now in his second and final term as Governor of Sokoto state.”
