Alhaji Sule Lamido, a former Governor of Jigawa and Presidential aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has said he will not leave the party even if he loses primaries for the presidential race. Lamido said this in an interview with newsmen at the residence of Gen. Jeremiah Useni, during a solidarity visit in Jos on Wednesday.
He said: “All of us vying for Presidency in PDP are equal and are capable of ruling Nigeria as President. “2019 Presidency is not just about me, we are all working for a just and a common goal to salvage the country. So if I’m not made candidate of our great party, I will support whoever emerges as flag bearer for PDP.” The Presidential aspirant assured that the party would reclaim its mandate.
Lamido further debunked rumours making rounds that he was being sponsored for the Presidential race by former President Olusegun Obasanjo. He said that he did not have any godfather in politics and was on his own vying for the number one seat in the country. “I was in PDP before former President Olusegun Obasanjo became president, I do not have a godfather, but I respect everyone in our party; we have the same aspiration as PDP members,” he added.
