Polls: Beware Of Amaechi’s Antics, N/Delta Group Cautions Lamido



Rotimi-Amaechi-and-Sule-LamidoAhead of the general elections in the country this month of February, a group, Niger Delta Non-Violence Youth Leaders Assembly, has warned Governor Sule Lamido of Jigawa State to be wary of the antics of his Rivers State counterpart, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi.

The group also commended Lamido for standing firm in supporting President Goodluck Jonathan’s re-election bid.

It expressed happiness that Lamido had refused to fall prey to Amaechi’s antics, but had remained focused in championing Jonathan’s candidature.

The group was reacting to the closed-door meeting between both governors, who are on different sides of the political divide, in Dutse, at the weekend.

President of the group, Ambassador Kennedy West, in a statement on Monday commended the Jigawa State governor for his immense contribution towards the growth and stability of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party by raising standards and inculcating good morals.

He said, “We pour out our appreciation to you, Governor of Jigawa State and President Goodluck Jonathan’s North-West campaign coordinator, Sule Lamido for your immense contributions towards the growth and stability of the PDP.

“Lamido’s maturity was demonstrated in the way and manner he carried himself during the arguments in the ruling party that saw the defection of the five governors to the All Progressive Congress.

“His patience was appreciated when he remained resolute in the party in spite of misgivings and had encouraged the party to grow and wax stronger.

“Lamido is one person we revered because of the qualities he exudes. That same outstanding character played out in his speech as he admonished the defectors of playing politics of desperation.

“We are all very optimistic that as a doyen in Nigerian politics whose legacy traverses generations, he would not fall prey to Amaechi’s antics. As youths from the region and state where Amaechi emerges from, we have a better understanding of Amaechi’s hostile and desperate quest for power even to the detriment of his trusted allies”.

    Sule Lamido is only being smarter by half by sticking with a crumbling PDP.He is with them to save his neck after his two sons were caught red-handedly for money-laundering! Secondly,while he could not control his mouth by labeling the action of Governors who defected to the opposition as “betrayal”,he is secretly nursing the ambition of becoming President after GEJ.Meanwhile, Northerners are watching his moves and would put him in his right place since they know that only the votes of his Jigawa State cannot secure his ambition. May be you’ll wise up when you see the percentage of votes he would manage to ganer for GEJ vis-a-vis 2011 figures.

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.”
