Northerners Not Supporting Buhari Are Being Threatened - Sule Lamido

By 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.)

“The fear of Buhari is the beginning of

leadership failure; therefore Nigerians

and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP,

government must stand up to its

mandate,” he said.

Lamido said this during the party’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.

“If 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,” he said.
