Onyebuchi Ezigbo in Abuja
A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Osita Okechukwu, has asked the former governor of Jigawa state, Sule Lamido, to be ready to tell Nigerians what his party, the People Democratic Party, did in the last 16 years to warrant another shot at the presidency.
The spokesman of the South-East zone of the APC, Mr. Osita Okechukwu, who described Lamido’s declaration of his 2019 presidential ambition as a welcome development, said the former governor has to tell Nigerians what his party, PDP, could not do while in office for 16 years that he is coming back to correct.
Lamido had declared on Monday that he would contest for presidency on the platform of the PDP in 2019.
However, while reacting to the Lamido’s declaration at the national secretariat Abuja, Okechukwu said Alhaji Lamido has a constitutional right to run for the office but he must save Nigerians all form of sentiments.
“Why not as long as the person saved us the agony of not telling us that the South has been marginalised or the north has been marginalised then we are on the same berth. It is now incumbent on him to tell us his programme what he want to do that PDP did not do in the last sixteen years or whether for him, PDP did so well, if he tells us the PDP did so well, then we have enough armour and arms to confront him with.
