I’ll Fight Imposition Either By Jonathan Or Tukur, Lamido Vows

gov-sule-lamidoContrary to reports in a section of the media that the Abubakar Kawu Baraje-led faction of the Peoples Democratic Party, otherwise known as “New PDP” may have entered into an agreement with the All Progressives Congress, APC, ahead of 2015, one of the arrowheads of a faction of the ruling party and Jigawa State Governor, Alhaji Sule Lamido has said that there was no such arrangement.

Lamido, who was reacting to the reports in Dutse, the Jigawa State capital, maintained that the group’s position remains the same, insisting that “nobody is moving out” of the PDP.

He also added that the group will fight the injustice within the party to its logical conclusion.

His words, “Our position remains the same. Former President Obasanjo submitted our demands; APC was not part of the demand. Nobody is moving out.

“I want to say that the PDP is owned by members of the party. We will continue to fight manipulation, intimidation and imposition. I will fight imposition either by Jonathan or Bamanga Tukur. There is no hesitation on the fact that I belong to the Baraje faction of the PDP. And we will continue this struggle until justice, fairness and due process take the centre stage in the party,” the Jigawa governor added.

  1. Cleden wait and see,what those people can do then.If what you are saying is true,why don’t you advice Mr President to forget about them.Let me tell you that Kano,Jigawa,Lagos,Maiduguri, Sokoto,and Bauchi are the states that if you want to rule this country Nigeria,then you must work with the Governors of those states mention above.Though leadership i believe is from God Almighty,but you have to work.Why can’t you advice Mr President to leave the faction PDP alone.Hahahah,he (Mr President) knows why,cos he is afraid of not coming back (Failing) the next tenure.

  2. He’s an old horse, he’s not the kind of person that could be intimidated by the likes of Tukur or Gej. He has been in the party ”PDP” ever b/4 it was born ,to be precise he’s a progenitor to ‘pdp’ from G 7 – G 9 ecetra ‘ecetra. He has been a fearless actor ever since, how can he be intimidated out of the party to which he’s a party to its creation.
