Mr Jonathan who made the statement when members of Sule Lamido National Campaign Council visited him at his Yenagoa residence in Bayelsa State today, said: .” Sule you are somebody that is highly courageous, zealous, committed and experienced, you can perform wonderfully well, and I believe the next President that will take over from Buhari God’s willing will be from PDP, and the task for him is to unify the country because Nigeria is now divided more than ever.
According to a statement by Mansur Ahmed, the social media aide to Mr Lamido, the former president said: “ In 2011, it was too difficult for a northern Governor to speak about Buhari, but Sule you makes a lot of meaningful political statements that really captures the minds of Nigerians and PDP supporters and you really sells the party,
Jonathan’s added, I always used to say that i am always happy to listen to you, because you know the history of Nigeria’s politics, when I was Vice President and President I went round Jigawa state to commission a lot of developmental projects, Jigawa witnessed a lot of wonders under your administration.
I know you are somebody who believes in the unity and sanctity of one Nigeria and your political history, philosophy and ideology, is all about leftist and humanism not capitalist, I wish you well in all your consultations and campaign. He said,
In his remark, the presidential hopeful said, I am here to formally inform you that am running for the Presidency in 2019 under our great party PDP,
Sir, I am from the old generation Lamido said, I was a former Member house of representatives in 1979, I have been through a lot of political participation, we must think and see how do we share and give back to Nigeria even for once,because Nigeria has been there for us. Nigeria has dignified and honored us.
I know your commitment, because you have a large heart, you have been demonized, blackmailed, called names but you remain silent, resolute and forged ahead in all your activities. He added,
Sir, I have gone round 35 states and consults with the party officials, stakeholders, BOT, NWC and you our national leaders and i share a common history, there are challenges in Nigeria, where a brother is killing a brother, fighting each other, in every village a brother is fighting a brother because of APC, as a giant of Africa and leader of the black race, we must rescue Nigeria
