Lamido made the declaration when he visited the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, National Secretariat in Abuja, yesterday.

The presidential aspirant informed members of the National Working Committee of the party of his intention to run for Presidency in 2019.

Lamido described himself as the national bridge Nigerians need.

He called on the party to do everything possible to defeat the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the 2019 elections.

Lamido, while questioning the democratic credentials of Buhari, the 2019 presidential hopeful urged Nigerians to know that, “Buhari has a history of violence.”

He said, “Buhari has nothing to offer Nigerians. Where was Buhari when we formed the PDP in 1998? He was a supporter of General Sani Abacha. Let me say this: Buhari represents violence and do not forget that the character of a leader has a way of affecting the behavior of the people.

“That is why there are lots of killings today in the country. Muslims are killing Muslims and in Ebonyi, some people are fighting against themselves.”

Lamido held that unlike the PDP, the All Progressives Congress (APC) would cease to exist if individuals like Buhari abandoned the party.

“People have left the PDP and we are still here. Take Buhari out of the APC, and the party is dead,” he said.

On his presidential ambition, Lamido said, “I am a national bridge and I have a large heart. I am not an aspirant but the aspirant. We are determined to reclaim Nigeria for Nigerians and if you are on the same page with me; then, we must collectively rescue this nation from the hands of these people.”



  1. Ok, Buhari has nothing to offer, meaning that you,Sule Lamido has anything to offer? But I thought you should now, be concerned more about what your fellow contestants for your dead party’s ticket has to offer your Party first, secure the nomination of your party before knowing who has or doesn’t have anything to offer Nigerians, knowing fully-well that governing a tiny state like Jigawa can never equate to governing a very big and complex country called Nigeria. Go ask Goodluck Jonathan!
