Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar in a bid to achieving his presidential ambition has appealed to ex-Governor Sule Lamido of Jigawa State to step down for him in the party’s presidential primary.
According to Atiku; “I did not go to Jigawa to campaign but to visit PDP members and my junior brother Sule Lamido. In 1993 election under the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in Katsina State two brothers – Shehu Musa Yar’Adua and Umaru Musa Yar’Adua were contesting. The latter stepped down for the former.”
“The elders told Shehu Musa Yar’Adua that there was no way they could support him as president and support his brother as the governor. Junior brother cannot contest against his senior brother. The junior brother instantly stepped down for his brother due to his loyalty.”
“The country needs repairs because of a system failure around all sectors, including security and economy. The government inherited an economy growing at about 7% and crashed it to recession in its first year and currently going below 2%.”
“Most of the parts of this country are currently feeling excluded. The APC administration is a failure and disappointment. Nigerians should vote out APC next year.”
