Ex-Governor Sule Lamido of Jigawa State has alleged that there is no leadership in Nigeria.

He said this while reacting to the rising insecurity in the country.

From banditry to insurgency and kidnapping, Nigeria is currently going through challenging times.

Speaking on Sunday Politics, a programme on Channels Television; Lamido said the government must be accountable to the people.

“Government must be held accountable and I don’t want to sound too political but it is a fact of life. When you want to attain political power, the process must be credible.

“Let us put politics aside. What do we do as leaders? We have no leadership in Nigeria, that is the problem and the world is looking at us.

“Above everything else, it is about leadership. Leadership is very important on the issue of Zamfara, why is the state becoming the hub of terrorism in Nigeria. Why?”

According to him, the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has been spreading lies because it is only after power.

“They knew they were telling lies. But for then, it was about getting the power. If they get the power, then they begin to ask, ‘what do we do?’ So, the process and the platform must be very honest; it must be very credible.”

“It is this character of telling lies to the young generation. When you raise their hopes in trying to get government help, and you are in government, by the time you fail to fulfil their needs, of course, there will be problems,” he said.
