A frontline presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Attahiru Bafarawa, said he left N13 billion in the Sokoto State Government’s treasury after his tenure as governor.
Bafarawa disclosed this in Owerri on Thursday at the PDP party state secretariat during a visit to party stakeholders to solicit support for his presidential ambition.
The former governor said during his eight years in office he did not receive any salary, but rather he used the money to develop the state.
The presidential contender said his victory over the criminal charges against him by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) showed that he was a politician with a clean record.
He said his ambition for the presidential position was borne out of his zeal to revive the country’s economy for the benefit of all citizens.
“I have experience and the most qualified to preside over the present Nigeria and as a good manager I will correct all the anomalies.
“PDP delegates should not make any mistake during the party’s primaries by electing inexperienced aspirants for this job, that is why I have come to present myself to you,” he said.
