JIGAWA State governor, Sule Lamido has rubbished insinuation that he would leave Peoples Democratic Party –PDP, to join opposition All Progressives Congress –APC, following a meeting he held with Rivers State governor, Rotimi Amaechi.
Governor Lamido re-emphasized his support for President Goodluck Jonathan who is seeking re-election in the February 14 presidential elections.
Lamido made this known at a PDP governorship rally in Kaugama, Kaugama Local Government Area, Jigawa on Tuesday.
He said he had cautioned governor Amechi on the dangers associated with dirty campaigns among politicians, adding that there was nothing wrong in him throwing his weight behind president Jonathan, who is a Christian.
“If Amechi, a Southerner and a Christian is campaigning for Gen. Muhammadu Buhari of the APC; I do not see any wrong for me, a northerner and Muslim to campaign for President Jonathan, Lamido said.
‘’Leadership comes from God. And in his divine wisdom made people of northern and southern extraction to live in one land, our dear country, Nigeria.
The governor appealed to the electorates not be deceived by smear campaigns, while urging them to vote for credible candidates, especially those who would respect human rights, ensure accountability and transparency in governance.
