Lamido

Sule Lamido, has rebuffed the entreaty of former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar to shelve his ambition to contest against him for the presidential ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for next year’s election.

Lamido, while dismissing the appeal, stated that instead  of appealing to him to step down, the reverse should be the case and that Atiku should actually be relinquishing his own ambition for the ticket, because he was the older person.

Atiku, sure of Lamido would react favourably by acceding to the request, said: “Junior brother cannot contest against his senior brother, the junior brother instantly stepped down for his brother due to his loyalty.’’

But, replying through his spokesman, Adamu Usman, the former Jigawa Governor, said: “While it is true he is older than me age-wise, I’m senior to him politically because I was in the House of Representatives in 1979 when he was an employee of Nigeria Customs Services.

“And if age is the criterion for standing election then he should drop out for Buhari.

“Even if Lamido did not shows interest to contest, PDP should have called him to be the flag bearer and if there is anyone the other aspirants should step down for, it should be Sule Lamido because he has the goodwill, political experience and capacity to confront the ruling party, APC.

“Also if Lamido is to step down, why would he aspire in the first place? Sule Lamido is out to run for the president come 2019 God willing.”
