Published

Sule-LamidoMuch touted presidential hopeful and Governor of Jigawa state, Alhaji Sule Lamido, has declared that the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) is a large party and anyone of its members can become President in 2015.

Lamido, who is widely believed to be nursing a presidential ambition in 2015, was speaking in an interview with Channels Television where he narrated his chances of clinching the PDP ticket for the forthcoming general elections.

He said, “Anybody in the PDP can become the President,” adding that “It can be me; it can be Jonathan or anybody”.

Lamido, a former Minister of Foreign Affairs in the Olusegun Obasanjo administration, also restated his firm belief in the democratic tenets of nomination just as he said it will be selfish and arrogant of him if he declares such an ambition without the essential nomination by his people.

    Lamido you can only be an aspirant not a flag bearer,because I know your weight & your supporters weight is too small to march Jonathan’s own,any way we know you might be the flag bearer in your newly adopted party APC.

    @ Cleden; what is gud 4 the geese they said is equally gud 4 the gander . Can’t U people at least see sense in what the learned politicians speak, simply b/cos they’re not from ur area? U have to take into cognisance that the likes of Sule lamido ‘re the founding father’s of PDP & not just mare opportunist , U should’nt expect him to forsake the party to which he was instrumental to its formation. We live to see how the 8 yrs appropriation term for elected president ‘ll be defeated, b/cos if gej ‘ll re – contest & won the election, it means he alone is being favoured by the constitution to rule Nigeria for 10 years.

    Fashola: If We Keep Our Promises, APC Will Retain Power In 2023Babatunde Fashola

Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola has expressed optimism that Nigerians will still vote the All Progressives Congress (APC) back to power in 2023.

Fashola, however, added that the only thing that can make Nigerians not to vote for the APC is if the party fails to fulfill its campaign promises to them.

The Minister made this remark while speaking with journalists on Monday in Abuja.

He noted that even if the promises are not 100% fulfilled but the citizens see signs of commitment and progress, other parties should forget about displacing APC in 2023.

The former Lagos State Governor added that opposition parties are not doing better than the APC, hence should not expect Nigerians to vote for them come 2023.

He said: “Some governors have joined us, from where we think we could not get voters before. To retain power in 2023, certainly if we keep our promises, people will vote for us. It is that simple, that is politics,” the former Lagos governor said.

“If you do what you say you will do, even if you don’t do hundred percent and they see that you are making progress, they will even want you to finish what you started.”
