Governor Sule Lamido of Jigawa state has revealed that the greatest enemies of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari are fellow presidential aspirants, Atiku Abubakar and Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso of Kano, PM News reports.
Governor Lamido, said this during the campaign rally of Malam Aminu Ringim, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate, at Garki Local Government Area of the state.
“I have never been an enemy of General Buhari. We don’t share the same political ideology and so I cannot pretend to admire his political beliefs, but Abubakar and Kwankwaso are his greatest antagonists because he scuttled their presidential ambitions when he won their party primaries,” the Vanguard reported.
He noted that claims by the APC Presidential Campaign Organisation that he was directed by President Goodluck Jonathan to campaign against Buhari were mischievous and misleading, adding that, he was too big to be used as a pawn by anyone.
He stated categorically that he can say about Buahri without fear, saying he has expressed himself severally in the past.
“There is no amount of hatred, harassment and intimidation by any political party that will stop the PDP from winning this month general elections in Nigeria.”
He said Jonathan will win the presidential election, considering the popularity and acceptability of the PDP by Nigerians, adding that, the party has done well and deserves victory at the polls going by the figures and analysis available to them.
