Buhari has devalued governance, says Lamido
A former governor of Jigawa State, Alhaji Sule Lamido, has said that governance under President Muhammadu Buhari has lost value and purpose, stressing that the situation requires immediate change.
Lamido, a presidential aspirant on the platform of People’s Democratic Party (PDP), made the remarks, yesterday, in Jalingo, the capital of Taraba State, while canvasing support of delegates ahead of the forthcoming convention of the party.
He declared: “Under the current Federal Government, life has no value as Nigerians are killed like flies and the president is not bothered because he is a “ para-civilian.”
Lamido urged Nigerians to put aside religious, ethnic and political differences to vote out the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led government during next year’s general elections.
He assured that if given the mandate to preside over the affairs of the country the incessant killings of innocent Nigerians would be brought to an end, adding, “my administration would add value to life and nobody will have anger to vent on a fellow citizen. There is more to farmers, grazers crises in Nigeria than meets the eyes.”
According to the presidential aspirant, “there are both farmers and herders in the United States of America, but all are living peacefully. Buhari administration deceived Nigerians that they are credible if voted into power only to inflict untold hardship on the people.”
Wondering why the Buhari administration has only succeeded in inflicting hardship on the people, Lamido said there is no committed fight against corruption, but persecution of political opponents, stressing: “There are criminals in the current Federal Government of Nigeria.”
He therefore advised eligible voters to as a matter of urgency, register and endeavour to collect their Permanent Voter Cards (PVC) to enable them elect candidates of their choice during the elections.
Earlier, the state PDP chairman, Victor Bala Kona, said history will never forget Lamido wherever PDP is mentioned, because of his consistency, suggesting that delegates at the PDP presidential primary would elect a credible standard bearer for next year’s elections.
