Shehu queries Sule Lamido’s support for Jonathan


Jigawa State governor, Alhaji Sule Lamido, turned from arch opponent to ardent supporter of President Goodluck Jonathan as a self-preservation device, accord­ing to the All Progressives Con­gress (APC).

The APC stated this on Sunday in reaction to a radio broadcast of the governor which the party said was being aired on some radio sta­tions.

The party noted that Lamido joined the club of Jonathan’s sup­porters to save the sons of the governor who are currently being tried for alleged corrupt practice.

A statement by the spokesman of the APC, Lai Mohammed, de­clared that Lamido’s broadcast was in agreement with President Goodluck Jonathan and Vice President Namadi Sambo.

Faulting the broadcast, the op­position party said:

“ Lamido had been pressured to do the interview because of the EFCC pressure on his sons’ cor­ruption charges.

Lamido has never worked near or with GMB to know his leader­ship style. Those working closely with him in the APC know other­wise.

“When did Lamido become a spokesman for the North?

“What did he and other Jona­than apologists negotiate for the North as the SW has been doing with Jonathan in the last two weeks?”
