Alhaji Sule Lamido, former Governor of Jigawa State, has blasted the All Progressives Congress (APC), saying it is a party that cannot conceive of good governance in the country.
Speaking last night while featuring on Trust TV’s Daily Politics, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, explained that the All Progressive Congress (APC) was formed to only grab power in the country.
He further explained that the APC lacks the character and capacity to bring the needed development to Nigerians in all spheres of life.
According to Lamido, “All they (APC) say is PDP is dirty but they are poaching on our members to come and build their party. APC taking PDP members into their fold is corruption.”
He said that there is nobody in APC that is original, emphasising that the party is very corrupt.
The PDP chieftain observed that the just concluded convention of the PDP has created more chances for the party in the 2023 election, expressing optimism that victory for PDP signifies great hope for the country.
He added that the convention was not a PDP convention but a Nigerian convention, saying that with the level of insecurity, divisions and bad economy in the country today, Nigerians are yearning for change.
Lamido recalled that he and other PDP leaders formed the G9 and G18 groups as the only way to stop General Sani Abacha’s transition programme and restore hope to Nigerians.
Arising from the outcome of June 12, he explained that the country went through a crisis and lack of trust.
He observed that there was mistrust in the land when Abacha came on board, stressing that Nigerians felt that they needed a very genuine democracy which should be able to unite Nigeria, restore trust and love in the country.
He further recalled that when Abacha was nursing his transition ambition, they felt that it will not work, adding that themselves in the G9, late Bola Ige, late Solomon Lar, Adamu Ciroma and others formed the G9, adding that they believed that one cannot heal Nigeria if June 12 is not addressed.
He added that they formed the G9 to fight Abacha transition ambition and not his government, saying that after that, they formed the G18, wrote a memo to Abacha challenging his transition.
