Jigawa State Governor, Sule Lamido has criticised the incoming administration of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for already giving excuses for inability to implement its campaign promises when it had not even taken over power.

Speaking at his last public function before leaving office, Lamido commissioned the N302 million Jigawa State Independent Electoral Commission. (JSIEC) office in Dutse.

“We heard them asking Nigerians for patience on their inability to implement their electoral promises even before assuming office. They also said that they can’t achieve everything overnight and that everything should be done gradually. Which gradually? Is it now that they know that everything should be gradual?

“As Nigerians too we are not going anywhere; we will keep tracking the government’s failures as there will be no tolerance and we must shout at them and they must work for Nigerians. Our government turned Nigeria into a new world; Jigawa State in particular but because of selfish interests they kept sabotaging, blackmailing and intimidating our government,” the governor lamented.

However, he said that he had no regrets leaving office after two terms. He asked the people of the state to thank God for giving them a trustworthy and honest leader who had transformed the state to the envy of all.

He stressed that he was not afraid of being probed by the incoming administration, adding that posterity would judge his good deeds aright.
