Tambuwal stated this while addressing thousands of youths and students who stormed the Governor’s Office on Wednesday.
The Sokoto Governor also accused a cabal of running his (Buhari’s) government, noting that Buhari’s integrity was not all that was needed to run the country.
Tambuwal said, “We supported Muhammadu Buhari in 2015 to become President unconditionally and we admit that Buhari has integrity but that’s not the only requirement for leadership.
“We are aware that the President is affected by serious challenges of health and is being held captive by a cabal that runs Nigeria for their personal interests.”
Buhari, sometime in 2017 faced a major medical challenge that saw him spending the better part of the year outside the country.
Meanwhile, Tambuwal has earlier declared that he had been under tremendous pressure to join the 2019 presidential race.
