Sule_LamidoThe immediate past Governor of Jigawa State, Alhaji Sule Lamido, on Monday returned from a three week holiday abroad with a promise to honour the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, invitation on Thursday.

He stated this while speaking with reporters in his Bamaina village in Birninkudu Local Government area of the state.

He said that EFCC was anti-graft agency of the government, recognised by law, therefore, he would not shun the invitation.

“I learnt that EFCC have invited me and I intend to honour their invitation by Thursday”, he said.

The former governor recalled that even while he was still in office and enjoyed immunity, he was always willing to make himself available to the anti-graft agency.

“While I was a governor I went to EFCC on my own in spite of my immunity. They have also arrested my son in the past over failure to declare 40,000 dollars. Other governors have been invited in the past. So I will be there”, he stressed.

On the raging controversy over the true state of liabilities and assets of Jigawa, Lamido told journalists that he would not join issues with his successor.

The former governor said that while leaving office, he held a special council meeting where he briefed the press on the liabilities he left behind for the incoming administration of Mohammed Badaru Abubakar.

Mr. Lamido said the APC government at the center should expect criticisms from the PDP because they never gave PDP any breathing space while they were in government adding that the PDP will give the governing party a credible opposition.
