Atiku and Kwankwaso are not on your team – Lamido reminds Buhari

The Jigawa State Governor, Sule Lamido has warned the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, General Muhammadu Buhari that he should consider former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and Kano State Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso as his real enemies.

He made this statement yesterday at Garki Local Government Area where the gubernatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Jigawa State Mallam Aminu Ringim was holding a campaign rally.

Lamido reacted to recent reports put out by the media committee of Buhari’s campaign directorate claiming that he had been ordered by President Goodluck Jonathan to campaign against the APC candidate, he said such claims were mischievous and misleading.

He maintained that he was too big to be used to campaign against Buhari before asserting strongly, “I am not afraid of anybody”.

He stressed that he could give any comment about Buhari without fear of anyone, adding that he had previously expressed his mind.

“There is no amount of hatred, harassment and intimidation by any political party that will stop the PDP from winning this month’s general elections in Nigeria.”

Meanwhile, Governor Lamido remains confident that President Jonathan will emerge winner in Saturday’s presidential election considering the popularity and acceptability of the PDP by Nigerians.

According to him, the PDP deserves victory at the polls going by the figures and a careful analysis made of the situation of things in the country.

“I have never been an enemy of General Buhari. We don’t share the same political ideology and so I cannot pretend to admire his political beliefs, but Abubakar and Kwankwaso are his greatest antagonists because he scuttled their presidential ambitions when he won their party primaries.”
