Governor Sule Lamido of Jigawa State has warned that the All Progressives Congress (APC) may take over leadership at the centre in 2015, if the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) does not put its house in order as the crisis rocking the party continues to create opportunities of advancement for the opposition party.
Lamido, who was one of the governors initially thought to have defected to the opposition party alongside five of his colleagues in the G7, said that if the PDP continues to misbehave, it would suffer defeat in the hands of APC in the 2015 general elections.
“PDP has been misbehaving and if it continues to misbehave in this way, the APC would take over the country in 2015. I now see the wisdom in the formation of the APC. Since the PDP is really misbehaving, the party will give PDP a good fight in the forthcoming election”, he said.
Lamido added that with the formation of APC, democracy had been made more vibrant in the country.
He made this known on Tuesday while receiving the leadership of the Kano and Jigawa chapters of the Nigerian Institute of Public Relations (NIPR) when they paid him a courtesy visit at the Government House, Dutse.
“I was amongst the G-7 governors for a certain ideology we shared, yet I was called names. I was called the black sheep from the North, I was called anti-North in the past, because of what I believed in”, said Lamido.
He said that he had been vilified by the public in the past, but that it would not force him to change his stance on what he thinks is right.
Lamido expressed dismay that people choose to hurl insults and abuses at others when they do not reason along the same line.
