Sule Lamido More Competent To Succeed Jonathan In 2015- Obasanjo
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo again unsettled the power that be in Nigeria’s presidential villa when he declared in Dutse, the capital of Jigawa state that the state Governor, Sule Lamido is competent to contest and occupy the presidential seat in 2015.
Obasanjo who stated this on Monday while signing a Memorandum Of understand (MOU) between Obasanjo Foundation and Jigawa state government on girls child education stressed that Lamido’s political background makes him more appropriate to save Nigeria from its present challenges.
His words: “Though he (Lamido) didn’t tell me his mind at the moment but for now what I know is that, with all experiences, track record and in term of exemplary leadership he exhibited in his six years as a governor in Jigawa state, he can stand shoulder to shoulder with any politician in this country”
Obasanjo said Nigeria in its present situation needs a qualitative leader who will deal with the current insecurity in the nation and also bail out citizens from the air of uncertainty in the country.
The former president who spoke while answering questions from journalists during his one- day official visit to the state added that “Going by Lamido’s background, performance and credibility, his competence and exposure, he can stand shoulder to shoulder with anybody in the country.”
“If it is the wish of the people, it is okay. He did not tell me he is vying for the post, but being the wish of the people let’s wait and see. Based on his track record, would you say he is not competent?, He is competent, he can stand shoulder to shoulder with anyone in this nation. Our hope is to produce future leaders who would grow up with one Nigeria in their mind. I mean those who are committed and patriotic”, he added.
