Sule Lamido, a former Jigawa State governor and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Presidential aspirant, has said no one can stop him from becoming Nigeria’s next President.
Mr Lamido, who stated this at a grand rally to commission his presidential Campaign office in Birnin-kudu, Jigawa, said no amount of intimidation could stop him from becoming president if it is the will of God.
He stated that 2019 presidential election was undoubtedly going to be between two Northern Muslim Fulani men who were both at one time governors and ministers at their different times.
The former governor “There is no soul on earth that can stop the will of Allah if He desired that I should be President of this country no matter the intimidation or harassment through court persecution, I shall certainly be.
“The 2019 presidential election is undoubtedly going to be between two northern Muslim Fulani men that were both at one time governors and ministers at their different times.
“The difference between myself and Buhari is that although he was one time a governor under the military but never served the people; he was a minister of Petroleum that was not known by many whereas, during my time as Foreign Affairs minister, I was known all over the world while my work as a former governor of eight years is there to speak for me.”
Mr. Lamido added that President Muhammadu Buhari is only a Fulani man by birth, challenging the president to translate some sentences he spoke to the crowd into Fulfulde.
“Buhari and the opposition party told lies to Nigerians prior to the 2015 elections, now the people have known better and that would manifest in the 2019 polls.
“All what have been preached by the present administration of APC were sheer mockery,” he said.
