Nigeria’s opposing Peoples Democratic Party have appointed Sokoto State Governor Aminu Tambuwal as the chairman of the party governors’ Forum.
Tambuwal replaces outgoing Bayelsa State Governor, Seriake Dickson, who was absent at the meeting and whose tenure will elapse on February 3, 2020, a statement by Mohammad Bello, special adviser to governor Tambuwal, said.
Tambuwal’s appointment was unanimous as all the governors in attendance at the party’s 88th National Executive Council held at the PDP National Secretariat, Wadata Plaza, Abuja, resolved and appointed him as their chairman.
Accepting the responsibility, Tambuwal pledged to move the party forward.
However, his predecessor, Dickson, was conspicuously absent at the NEC meeting.
