“Wamakko and Tambuwal were my students” – PDP presidential aspirant/ex-Sokoto Gov., Attahiru Bafarawa

A former governor of Sokoto State, Dr Attahiru Dalhatu Bafarawa, who is currently a presidential aspirant under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has said he brought Senator Aliyu Wamakko and incumbent Sokoto governor, Aminu Tambuwal into politics. Disclosing this in a recent interview with Daily Trust when he spoke on his presidential ambition, Bafarawa said, “The governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal, was my student.  It was during my time that I brought him to the House of Representatives in 2003. So, we respect each other; and maybe that is what even made him to come back to the PDP to join his former leader. I think it is very encouraging that my student is competing with his teacher, which is very good.” On Wamakko who is the seating senator representing Sokoto North Senatorial District, Bafarawa said, “I can’t compare my popularity with that of Wamakko. Mind you, he was my student. I brought him into politics as my deputy governor. He was a civil servant. You can’t compare him with me. I don’t even want it to come from my mouth. The reality is there. You can only become popular by your achievements.”
