Former Governor of Jigawa State and the Presidential aspirant on the platform of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Sule Lamido on Tuesday said Nigerians must flush out Buhari in 2019 for a better secured and prosperous Nigeria.
Lamido made the call at the Government House Jalingo when he led his presidential campaign team to consult with the Governor, the government and the people of Taraba State in continuation of his tour of the country ahead 2019 elections.
He noted that Nigerians have seeing the light and will be in a better position to make real change in 2019.
“We must flush out what is called Buhari for a better, secured and prosperous Nigeria in 2019.
“I want to condole with you over the killings in Taraba. It is unfortunate that Buhari has turn this country into a murderous field and today we have to contend with killings in Plateau, Benue, Zamfara, Sokoto, Kaduna and other parts of the country, yet the President is not bothered that people are being killed on a daily basis.
“But when Gen. TY Danjuma called on Nigerians to defend themselves they attacked him. But this was what the Emir of Birnin Gwari and other Emirs in the north said before and nobody picked offense.
“It is unfortunate that we have found ourselves where we are today. The Police have become a political tool to punish and victimise political opponents,” he said.
While calling on Nigerians not to fall into what he called the APC blackmail, Lamido said his aspiration was born out of the desire to give governance a new meaning and unite the country for the good of all, especially the masses.
Gov Darius Ishaku described Lamido as a true Nigerian and an ambassador of the masses who always put the masses first.
He noted that PDP hold the hope for Nigeria, adding that the party must consult widely to pick a competent and credible presidential candidate for 2019 that would be acceptable to all.
“At appropriate time, God will help us in the PDP to pick an acceptable candidate for the 2019 Presidential election. I want to assure Nigerians that PDP will bounce back in 2019,” he said.
Earlier, the Director General of Sule Lamido Presidential campaign Organization, Mr Musa Elayo said they were in the state to consult with the people of Taraba over the forthcoming 2019 Presidential elections and seek their support for Sule Lamido.
Elayo said Sule Lamido had passion for a united and prosperous Nigeria, adding that if elected President he will unify the country and redeem Nigeria’s image in the global community.
On herdsmen/farmers crisis, the DG said Sule Lamido has what it takes to end the killings given his track records on how he ended the herdsmen/farmers clashes in Jigawa and prevented Boko Haram from infiltrating the state.
