APC Will Send PDP Out of Government in 2015 – Gov Lamido
Jigawa State governor, has said that the All Progressive Congress APC will send the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP packing in the 2015 election because the ruling party has misused its opportunity.
Lamido said this on Tuesday in his office during a visit of leaders from the Nigerian Institute of Public Relations (NIPR) Kano/Jigawa chapter, led by Sule Yau Sule, image maker of former Kano State Governor Ibrahim Shekarau.
Lamido had in the past openly declared in an interview with a national daily that the APC cannot be an alternative to the ruling party PDP.
He also refused to join his colleagues in the G-7 where five of the seven governors dumped the PDP and moved to the APC, stating that he cannot abandon a house a helped to build simply because the roof of the house is leaking
However, the governor at the visit to his office told the delegation that since the PDP is misbehaving, the APC is ready and capable of wresting power from it which he said will be good for the country.
He said the PDP was formed to heal Nigeria from the distortion and pain inflicted on it by the 19 years of military incursion in politics.
According to him those years of lacuna have resulted in the present leadership failures in both private and public institutions in the country.
He accused the PDP of divisive tendencies which has divided the country along ethnic and religious lines even as he took a swipe at the mega opposition APC for being emotional.
‘Nigeria can not be governed by divisive means or emotions’ On the contrary he said the PDP has lived up to its original bidding of healing the country of its wounds.
However he said the party in recent times has derailed and because he spoke up against it he is being blackmailed and designated as a thief.
The Governor said the debate in the north has changed to that of hate and distortion which portend serious danger ahead.
‘The north is known for values, respect, care and justice but because of the lust for power all that has been eroded.’
He observed that in times of crises it is the common-man that bares the brunt of it as most elites don’t die.
‘The elites are evil as we would not mind killing our own people for our selfish interest, how long can we hold on.’
He blamed politicians for lack of principle which has led many to keep jumping from one party to another.
This the Governor said has also affected Nigerian democracy negatively Lamido admonished his visitors to see what they can do to reorder the trend.
‘How do you restore the North to honor, respect, justice? If we destroy ourselves who will lead us?’
The Governor pointed out that in Jigawa his leadership is trying to restore confidence and trust in
the people to connect the missing link and bring about ownership. Lamido said the youth have been at the receiving end having been delinked hence he charged the NIPR to work harder to reorder the situation.
