2019 presidency: What Jonathan said about Sule Lamido

Published

on

Former President, Goodluck Jonathan, has identified a former Jigawa State Governor, Alhaji Sule Lamido as a courageous and experienced leader, who is capable of uniting the country if given the chance.

Lamido is one of the presidential aspirants on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

The former President said this when members of Sule Lamido National Campaign Council visited him at his Yenagoa residence in Bayelsa State, on Saturday.

Jonathan expressed the belief that the next president after President Muhammadu Buhari, would come from the PDP next year.

He said, “Sule, you are somebody that is highly courageous, zealous, committed and experienced.

“You can perform wonderfully well, and I believe the next president that will take over from Buhari, God willing, will be from PDP and the task for him is to unify the country because Nigeria is now divided more than ever

“In 2011, it was too difficult for a northern governor to speak about Buhari, but Sule you made a lot of meaningful political statements that really captured the minds of Nigerians and PDP supporters and you really sold the party to the people.

“I am always happy to listen to you, because you know the history of Nigeria’s politics. When I was Vice President and later President, I went round Jigawa State to commission a lot of developmental projects. Jigawa witnessed a lot of wonders under your administration.

“I know you are somebody who believes in the unity and sanctity of one Nigeria and your political history, philosophy and ideology are all about leftist and humanism not capitalist, I wish you well in all your consultations and campaign, ” the former president said.
