Northerners Not Supporting Buhari Are Being Threatened - Sule LamidoBy kellychi 10:20 Thu, 22 Jan 2015 Comments
Jigawa State Governor, Sule Lamido has
expressed disgust over what he described as
the level of threat some northerners were
facing for not supporting the presidential
ambition of the former Head of State, General
Muhammadu Buhari (rtd.)
â€œThe fear of Buhari is the beginning of
leadership failure; therefore Nigerians
and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP,
government must stand up to its
mandate,â€ he said.
Lamido said this during the partyâ€™s
presidential campaign in the state. He warned
that the siege mentality with which people are
being threatened in the north because of
Buhari would backfire. He explained that any
northerner who is not supporting Buhari was
being threatened an seen as an infidel.
The governor therefore said he would not be
perturbed by any intimidation or name
callings because of his support for the PDP
because he was a democrat and would
continue to promote the truth.
He described Buhari as the only individual
decorating the APC as a party, noting that the
greatest mistake Nigerians would make is to
give their mandate to an individual who does
not believe in democracy.
â€œIf you remove Gen. Buhari from APC,
most of other members that rally
behind him in the party lack sincere
commitment and focus that Nigeria
requires at this present time,â€ he said.
