2015: Gov Lamido Begins Move to Challenge President Jonathan for PDP Ticket
Jigawa State Governor, Alhaji Sule Lamido, has begun subtle moves to challenge President Goodluck Jonathan for the presidential ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at the party’s presidential primary to be held later in the year.
This, the governor has started doing with his supporters inundating Nigerians with campaigns in electronic format and newspaper advertisements focusing on the various achievements of the governor.
Lamido’s campaigners have been airing a 30-minute documentary of how Obama and Mandela transformed their countries through purposeful, focused and qualitative leadership, concluding that Lamido is doing the same in Jigawa State.
In the 30-minute documentary, Lamido’s campaigners interjected it with quotes from Mandela and former Nigeria’s Military Head of State, General Abdulsalami Abubakar, who expressed satisfaction with the transformation of Jigawa State.
The advertorials it was gathered are just a window rehearsal for the presidential primary to square off with President Jonathan to secure the PDP ticket .
Jonathan is yet to declare his intention to seek a second term in office, while Lamido is still serving out his second term as the governor of Jigawa.
Presidency sources said there are growing fears over Lamido’s ambition, and are concerned that a keen contest at the primary could block the president’s chance of securing an automatic ticket.
