People see PDP members as demons – Sule Lamido
Immediate past governor of Jigawa State, Alhaji Sule Lamido has expressed disappointment with the way Nigerians, especially electorates, see members of the Peoples Democratic Party.
He said the party was worried that people see its members as demons.
PDP ruled Nigeria between 1999 and 2015 before it was ousted by the All Progressives Congress.
Speaking with Vanguard on his presidential ambition in 2019, Lamido said one of his major challenges at the moment was the way Nigerians label the former ruling party, probably because of its past mistakes while in power.
“We are all disturbed today because, for example, if you are a member of the PDP, you are labelled a demon. That is not politics,” he lamented.
On how prepared he is for the general election, Lamido said, “I am still consulting with the leaders of the party. It is like internal memo for now, we are meeting various groups in the party to sell our philosophy and intention to run for the presidency in 2019 and I am only talking to PDP members so as to be on the same page.
“The ambition is necessary following the poor governance we have from the APC. Today, Nigeria is missing out in the comity of nations because we are too busy fighting one another at home.”
