    I Pity Tinubu, He’ll Be Used And Dumped – Sule Lamido Opens Up

    Ahead of the forthcoming general elections, former Jigawa State governor and Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) presidential hopeful, Sule Lamido have urged former Lagos state governor and national leader of the All Progressives Congress, (APC) Asiwaju Bola Tinubu to review his membership of the ruling party.

    Lamido gave the admonition on Thursday in Abuja, while speaking at the 15th Daily Trust Dialogue with the theme, ‘’Nigeria and the Challenges of 2019.’’

    The former Jigawa state governor who noted that Asiwaju Tinubu had since been sidelined by the Presidency further claimed that the former Lagos state is being integrated by Buhari ahead of a fresh election.

    Turning to former Lagos state governor Commissioner for Finance, Wale Edun, who represented Bola Tinubu, the former Jigawa state governor said: “Tell Asiwaju that his brother and friend says he is in a wrong party. He will only recover and reintegrate himself as a democrat if he leaves the APC.

    ‘’Asiwaju has only integrated six months ago. They were using his governors and ministers from south-west to fight him! We know all these, he should leave APC for them.’’

    In his appraisal of the Buhari administration, the PDP presidential aspirant said he was not surprised by what he called APC incapacity to deliver on its electoral promises as he dismissed the ruling party as a platform created out of desperation for power.

    “APC is telling us what government should do after three years in power. APC should tell us what they failed to do. They call Nigerians wailing wailers for complaining. Thankfully, wailing will be over in 2019.

    “APC members have joined the wailing wailers. Buhari is wailing, when he complained that there was no viable hospital here to attend to his ailment; his wife was wailing when she said there was no syringe at State House Clinic. Sagay is wailing, Akande is wailing, everybody is wailing.”

    The former Jigawa governor also offered a hint of a coalition of forces across parties divide to unseat President Buhari in 2019, as he revealed that 2019 will be defined by borderless politicking. Those in APC and PDP will come together to save Nigeria.’’

    Tinubu, however, said remarkable achievements have been made by the present administration despite efforts by members of the main opposition party, the PDP too cast aspersion on the ruling party.

    He said:’’The past 3 years have captured the essence of our collective challenge. Progress has been made in part. However, advocates of the old ways have rebelled in full against even these partial blossoms of improvement.

    ‘’Yet, I maintain the unshakeable belief that smart, progressive governance can bring prosperity, tranquility, and justice.

    ‘’During the past three years, this government has beaten Boko Haram into retreat. None of us should forget the looming threat Boko Haram posed and the fear it instilled in the general public just a brief time ago. It had planted its flag over Nigerian land, claiming territory bigger than several nations. It had kidnapped and killed at will, decimating towns and villages in its wake.

    ‘’The dreaded terrorist flag is nowhere to be seen and steadily people are returning to their homes, rebuilding their towns and villages in the process. Boko Haram may not be completely defeated but it shall never rise again to be the existential threat it once was. Because of this government’s policy, countless lives have been saved from the grasp of terror.

    ‘’In addition, this government has progressed in the fight against corruption through the recovery of stolen public funds and bringing wrong-doers to justice. As progress is being made on these fronts, Nigeria also must face its biggest structural problem: our imbalanced economy and the poverty and misery it has caused.
