Fayose claimed that Tambuwal betrayed the party and Governor Nyesome Wike.
“ I am so excited by the loss of Governor Tambuwal candidate in Sokoto. You see when a man is treasured there is a pay back time.
“He betrayed the party in 2015, he ran back. He betrayed the Asiwaju he went to meet in APC, he betrayed Wike that soon sponsored him in 2019, this is payback time.
“I appreciate the people of Sokoto for voting against Tambuwal.
“I enjoined you to vote against him again in the senatorial rerun. You are wonderful people and God sees the affairs of men. Tambuwal is gone.”
