Why APC Is Scared Of Sheriff As PDP Nat’l Chairman – Sule Lamido

APC-Ali Modu-SheriffThe immediate past Governor of Jigawa State, Alhaji Sule Lamido, has described the current national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, as the “best thing” to have happened to the major opposition party.
Mr. Lamido made this assertion in an interview published in Daily Trust on Saturday ahead of the anticipated visit of the PDP national chairman to Jigawa next week.
According to the former governor, those opposing Sheriff’s emergence as chairman of the former ruling party are doing so out of fear because they realize he (Sheriff) is a veteran politician with a huge followership.
“You know, Modu Sheriff (current PDP acting national chairman), has a long standing political history. All those making noise are product of political invention”, he said.
Lamido recalled that as a member of the then opposition, Sheriff as two-term governor of Borno State, floored the PDP at the polls and was one of the arrowheads that led the defunct All Nigerian Peoples Party, ANPP, to the alliance that later gave birth to the All Progressives Congress, APC, the current governing party.
“When they were forging alliance with ANPP, Sheriff was the arrowhead”, Mr. Lamido said, adding “They were celebrating him when he was in APC, working for APC. He was a very wonderful person. But, when he joined the PDP, he became a Boko Haram member. Who is saying so, of course, the APC members because they are scared of him? He knows them damn too well”.
Looking back on the 2015 general elections, the ex-governor alleged that the “PDP was vilified, intimidated with religion, falsehoods and propaganda through Facebook postings. Rwandan genocide pictures were posted as Boko Haram victims. PDP was blackmailed into silence”.
Giving insight into the voting pattern in the North, which accounted largely for the APC ‘Tsunami’ in the region, Lamido said “When you queued to vote in the north, people viewed you as an infidel. You were all there and these things happened in a country where freedom should be the operating word. APC man can vote APC but if Lamido votes PDP, he is a Christian, he is a pastor”.
He, however, said with Sheriff at the saddle, the PDP is poised to send the APC packing in 2019.
“I think, today, Sheriff is the best thing to have happened to PDP. It is a huge good will, he has a huge followership. He is somebody who is courageous, inspirational and he can say ‘look, APC go to hell!’ APC is thoroughly scared because they know him and what he is capable of doing. He will come to Jigawa sometime next week. We will come out en masse to welcome him and assemble the biggest crowd ever in Nigerian politics. We want to force them (APC) out in 2019 because they have no agenda and manifesto to govern”.
