Fani-Kayode, who spoke to journalists before the meeting, said he was in the state to consult with Lamido on the way forward with regard to 2015.
“I am here to see my brother and friend, Govenor Sule Lamido. I have seen the wonderful works he has done in the state and I am proud of him. I am also here to consult with him on the state of affairs in the country, especially the crisis in the PDP and options for 2015. I am working with like minds across the political divide whether it is the nPDP or APC. Time has come for all patriots to rise and ensure that President Goodluck Jonathan does not return in 2015 because I have a feeling that his return won’t be good for the country”.
The former minister, however, noted that he does not have any personal scores to settle with Mr. Jonathan, saying that he just understands from studying the president that he lacked the capacity to rule Nigeria.
On the police disruption of a meeting of the G-7 governors last Sunday, Fani-Kayode said it shows the desperation and lack of respect for people like Gov. Lamido, who is one of the founding fathers of the Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, by the Jonathan administration.
