Nigerians Called Us ‘PDP’ Thieves And Voted APC, Buhari Should Lead Them Forever – Sule Lamido 1
Speaking during an interview on BBC Hausa on Tuesday, October 5, 2020, Lamido said he could not pray or advise President Buhari on how to improve the living conditions of Nigerians.
Lamido who was Jigawa governor under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from 2007 to 2015, said President Buhari should lead the country forever if he’s doing well because Nigerians called his party (PDP) thieves and voted APC.
“You can’t say in the past 60 years of our independence that there is no progress, there is,” he said.
“I am from an opposition party, no matter how much I love Buhari or his cabinet, I can’t enter the mosque and pray for him. People called us [PDP] thieves and voted APC. So, it is left for them to judge now.
“If Buhari is doing good, they know and let him lead Nigeria forever. But if he is doing wrong, we are always there to come and take over in order to do the right thing.
“But, honestly, our leaders are not taking advantage of the natural resources we have in the country to make us progress and live better.”
Meanwhile, President Buhari has lamented that the APC is always embroiled in bitter and unnecessary squabbles which has cost the ruling party governorship and legislative seats during elections.
