The former governor of Jigawa State and current presidential aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Sule Lamido, has said his Party was voted out of power in 2015 based on blackmail.
He, however, added that three years down the line, Nigeria had become a war zone because of the present government’s alleged incompetence.
Lamido stated this on Thursday in Lagos when he met with PDP chieftains in the state to inform them about his ambition to run for the presidency in 2019.
“In 2019, the coast is clear. There is no way APC will win. Look at the country, are we united? Are we stable? Are we prosperous? Are we secure? We’ve become a world embarrassment; we are becoming an ancient nation. So PDP will come back in 2019.
“There is no way, Buhari will ever come back no matter what he does, because he knows he is a contraption who rode on the notions of the Nigerian people based on blackmail, sentiment and hate speech,” he alleged.
He pleaded with Nigerians to help ensure APC does not return in 2019, adding: “If we allow Nigeria to go to APC in 2019, God will judge us.”
