2019 Presidency: Why Atiku should step down for Buhari – Sule Lamido
A former Jigawa State Governor, Sule Lamido, on Tuesday declared that he won’t step down for ex-Vice President, Atiku Abubakar.
Abubakar had yesterday said Lamido may step down for him.
But, Lamido said he can’t step down because he was Abubakar’s senior.
Both men are aspirants on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
But in a statement by his media aide, Adamu Usman, Lamido said, “While it is true he (Mr Abubakar) is older than me age-wise, I’m senior to him politically because I was in the House of Representatives in 1979 when he was an employee of Nigeria Customs Services.
“And if age is the criterion for standing election, then he should drop out for Buhari.”
Lamido said he has been “patient, loyal, committed and consistent” in politics despite all the odds and his travails.
“Even if Lamido did not shows interest to contest, PDP should have called him to be the flag bearer and if there is anyone the other aspirants should step down for, it should be Sule Lamido because he has the goodwill, political experience and capacity to confront the ruling party, APC.
“Also if Lamido is to step down, why would he aspire in the first place? Sule Lamido is out to run for the president come 2019 God willing,” the statement added.
