A former governor of Jigawa State, Alhaji Sule Lamido, on Thursday took yet another swipe at the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), saying the party thrives on falsehood.
Lamido made the remark in Makurdi during a consultation visit to Governor Samuel Ortom and other Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) stakeholders in Benue State over his 2019 presidential ambition.
“The APC has demonized, blackmailed the PDP but the APC is a party that strives on falsehood. PDP is the only party with the political history to keep Nigeria united. Those of them with chicken heart go to APC for sanctuary and to also be used to create division in the country,” he said.
“I share in anxiety of those who advocate that Nigeria should be restructured. APC is a party that strives on propaganda and the money they have stolen is so horrendous and they keep talking about corruption.”
Lamido blamed the APC for introducing division leading to venomous agenda aimed at defrauding the country, and emphasised the need for Nigerians to uphold its brotherhood by being there for each other, tribe or religion.
“Today, there is blood everywhere. We can no longer sleep with our two eyes closed due to killings and kidnapping by undesirable elements nationwide. We must work for a united Nigeria and secure the country,” he said.
The presidential hopeful noted further that his aspiration is devoid of desperation as he urged Nigerians to bring the PDP back to power so that its government would install integrity back into the system.
