Governor Sule Lamido of Jigawa State has lashed out at his counterparts in Sokoto and Kano States, Aliyu Wamakko and Rabiu Kwankwaso respectively for defecting from the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, saying that their defection with others was not only a betrayal of trust but deceitful and selfish.
Lamido also lambasted the former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Bello Masari and the former Minister of the Abuja Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Mallam Nasiru el-Rufai for dumping the PDP for APC.
Lamido spoke while addressing thousands of party supporters during the flag off of the Jigawa North Central zonal rally of the PDP at Gwaram town.
According to the governor “Some politicians used General Muhammadu Buhari as a weapon to win election simply because people describe him (Buhari) as trustworthy but the question is, those using his name; are they trustworthy as such Buhari? People should be mindful of such politicians.
“This has clearly indicated that they are in politics for elective positions and appointments.
The PDP has done everything good for these people but to our greatest surprise they abandoned the party that gave birth and nursed them…, simply because these people are not satisfied with the style of their governance.
He further said that those who decamped from the PDP should blame themselves not the party because their people have lost confidence in them and the party has no alternative then to replace them with qualitative and trusted leaders.
He stressed that the PDP had not been harmed as a result of the departure of the former members pointing out that other people had equally joined the party.
