Jonathan heading for self-destruction, says Sule Lamido
Former Jigawa State governor, Sule Lamido, has expressed fears that former president, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, has been experimenting with self-destruction.
Lamido was reacting to rumours that Jonathan plans to join the All Progressives Congress (APC) in order to contest for the presidency again in 2023.
He said this in an interview with some select newsmen, noting that everything the former president achieved politically in Nigeria came through the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and that if he reflected on the past, he would not dare to mingle with the current APC leaders considering how they sabotaged his presidency in the past.
Lamido said: “The issue of Jonathan going to APC to be their standard-bearer, I pray it is not true, because if it is, he is inviting self-destruction. This was somebody who came from a very humble and decent background. All the achievements he made and his political ascendancy were under the PDP platform, which meant PDP gave him his biggest world.
“It is for him to reflect on the love, the family bond of the PDP, the sacrifices made, the humiliation we went through, the vilification of the APC of his own government, the way he was being demonised, the way Wole Soyinka was calling his wife a hippopotamus, and calling him clueless. The entire APC 2013, 2014 literally destroyed him. He should be able to reflect.
He said “The people courting him now are liars. They lied to get to the government. I urge him in the name of God, the very God that made him from nothing, to think about PDP which made him from nothing. He should please reconsider,” Lamido said in the interview.
