PDP crisis sign of good omen – Lamido

Leadership crisis good omen for PDP – Lamido

From Aliyu M. Hamagam, Dutse

A former Jigawa State governor, Sule Lamido, yesterday said the leadership crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is a sign of good omen.

Lamido, who said this while fielding questions from newsmen in his country home, Bamaina, in Jigawa State, argued that, six months ago, nobody talked about the party and its leadership.

He said PDP members were afraid to identify themselves with the party shortly after the last general elections, stressing that with what is happening now, things were changing for the better in the party.

The former governor also disagreed with the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, for saying that PDP’s sins were responsible for the present economic crunch in the country.

He argued that if that was the case, “the APC was also a combination of sinners because it was formed largely by former PDP members.”

He said the APC won the 2015 general elections with the support of PDP members who defected few months to the polls, stating that most of them were serving governors and ministers.

“If the PDP committed sins in its 16 years in power, then it means that people like Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, Aliyu Wamakko, Rotimi Amaechi, Aminu Tambuwal, Umar Ganduje, Atiku Abubakar and a host of many others who claimed to be APC members today are all sinners because they were in the PDP before joining the APC,” said Lamido.

Speaking on why he has not advised government on ways to tackle the present problem of insecurity in the troubled Niger Delta region, Lamido said the APC government had already politicized the matter which should have been an issue of national concern for everybody.

“The government of the APC has already accused the PDP as the brain behind the problem of insecurity in Niger Delta.

“It is most unfortunate that the federal government has already given the problem a political undertone by pointing an accusing finger to the PDP,” said Lamido.
