A former Jigawa State Governor, Sule Lamido, has told former president, Goodluck Jonathan that brothers are now fighting killing and themselves because of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
Lamido, a presidential aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, said this when he led members of Sule Lamido National Campaign Council to visit Jonathan at his Yenagoa residence in Bayelsa State on Saturday.
He said, “And in all my consultations, I admitted that there are challenges in Nigeria, where a brother is killing a brother, fighting each other. In every village, a brother is fighting a brother because of APC.
“Sir, I have gone round 35 states and consulted with the party officials, stakeholders, BoT, NWC and our national leaders, including you.
“But as a giant of Africa and leader of the black race, we must rescue Nigeria, this is why I am offering my myself for that role ”
He continued, “I am here to formally inform you that I am running for the presidency in 2019 on the platform of our great party, the PDP.
“Sir, I am from the old generation, but I also relate with the new generation. I was a former member of House of Representatives in 1979, but I was also a governor from 2007 to 2015.
“So, I am the bridge between the old and the new generation. I have been through a lot of political participation, we must think and see how we can give back to Nigeria even for once, because Nigeria has been there for us. Nigeria has dignified and honoured us
“I know your commitment because you have a large heart, you have been demonised, blackmailed and called names, but you remain silent, resolute and forging ahead in all your activities.
