Former Governor of Jigawa State and a presidential aspirant on the platform of Coalition for United Political Parties, CUPP, Sule Lamido, has said that he is ready to sacrifice his ambitions for a single candidate for the sake of future generations of Nigerians.

Mr Lamido stated this when he came to meet with party members and chieftains at the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, secretariat on Thursday over his presidential ambition.

According to him, all other aspirants too are ready to step down and support a sole candidate in order to defeat APC and President Muhammad Buhari, who are already scared and desperate ahead of the 2019 elections.

“Those aspirants in the PDP and the coalition are ready to make any sacrifice for the sake of our future generations. I feel sad for them, I feel sad for Nigerians because people just took over power without being prepared for it.

“People are dying everywhere, there is kidnapping everywhere, from here to Abuja, look at Birnin Gwari, Zamfara there is blood everywhere in their desperation for power.

‘They feel embarrassed, and are confused but the entire world is watching us. Everything has failed, you don’t feel secure, you don’t feel safe anywhere. This country is for all of us we are not second citizens.

“APC is scared and desperate, they have stolen our money. PDP has made history, the party has produced three presidents, many governors, senators, reps.

“All former governors are from PDP. It is now up to Nigerians to compare between the PDP and APC government.  Are the APC governments of angels? Are they pious? Are they not corrupt?”

He noted that PDP is tired of the lamentations and angst in the country, hence its desire to wrest power back from APC.

“There is anger, there is confusion so PDP decided to say no to the APC government. PDP is the only political party with political sagacity.”

“Nigeria is my country, I should not be afraid, I fear nobody. If you fear then you are doomed, if I die then I have died for the youth. I have been to the prison four or five times so why should I fear?”
