THE G-7 GOVERNORS & PRESIDENT GOODLUCK JONATHAN AFTER ONE OF THEIR PEACE TALKS
THE G-7 GOVERNORS & PRESIDENT GOODLUCK JONATHAN AFTER ONE OF THEIR PEACE TALKS

Governor Sule Lamido of Jigawa State has declared that President Goodluck Jonathan is free to contest the 2015 Presidential election through a fair and transparent process.

Gov. Lamido’s position is different to the hard line stance adopted by the faction of the Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, led by Abubakar Kawu Baraje of which he is a member.

The G-7 governors of the Baraje-led PDP had insisted that based on a purported one term pact signed by President Jonathan in 20011, he must not seek a second term in office; a position that has pitched the ‘aggrieved’ governors against the presidency and the mainstream PDP led by Bamanga Tukur.

But speaking yesterday when 50 ex-1979 legislators paid him a courtesy call in Dutse, the Jigawa State capital, Gov. Lamido was quoted as saying, “As for the government, we voted for it in 2011 and we will continue to defend, support and stand by the government till 2015. Our loyalty remains with the government. It is our government. That I can guarantee.

“But our problem is with PDP as a party as it is currently constituted. We feel that there is no due process, integrity and transparency. It is this brigandage that we are fighting and we shall fight until justice is done. Jonathan is free to contest but the process must be free and fair, credible and transparent.”

  1. Let our Nigerian thoughts and actions be guided with the Constitution of the Federal Republic Of Nigeria. I am believing that your admitting this today doesn’t mean that tomorrow you and your cohorts will go doing the unthinkable just like the invention of Boko Harram,ASUU strike persistence and others yet to be made open to the masses. In all its a welcome development from a rebel PDP member. Let your words go down to your thinking faculty and actions as well.

  2. If you like support Jonathan or not,he will not beg you,he has told anybody that wants to contest to do so & leave our president alone.
