Taraba Governor, Darius Ishaku has affirmed that the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, holds the hope for Nigeria.
The Governor stated this in Jalingo on Tuesday while receiving the Former Governor of Jigawa State and Presidential aspirant of the PDP at the Exco Chamber of the Taraba Government House.
According to him, the party must consult widely to pick a competent and credible presidential candidate for 2019.
“At the proper time, God will help us in the PDP to pick an acceptable candidate for the 2019 Presidential election. I want to assure Nigerians that PDP will bounce back in 2019,” he said.
He described Alhaji Sule Lamido as a true Nigerian and an ambassador of the masses who always puts Nigeria and the masses first.
In his remarks, Alhaji Sule Lamido said Nigerians must flush out Buhari in 2019 for a better, secured and prosperous Nigeria.
He noted that Nigerians have now seen the light and would be in a better place to make real change in 2019.
“We must flush out what is called Buhari for a better, secured and prosperous Nigeria in 2019.
“I want to condole with you over the killings in Taraba. It is unfortunate that Buhari has turned this country into a murderous field.
“Today, we have to contend with killings in Plateau, Benue, Zamfara, Sokoto, Kaduna and other States of the country, yet the President is not bothered that people are being killed.
“When Gen. T.Y Danjuma called on Nigerians to defend themselves, they attacked him. But this was what the Emir of Birnin Gwari and other Emirs in the north had said before now with no one picking offense.
“It is unfortunate that we have found ourselves here today. The Police has become a political tool used to punish and victimize political opponents,” he said.
While warning Nigerians against falling prey to what he called the APC blackmail, Lamido said his aspiration was born out of the wish to give governance a new meaning and unite the country for the good of all, especially the masses.
Earlier, the Director General of Sule Lamido Presidential campaign Organization, Barr. Musa Elayo said they were in the State to consult with the people of Taraba over the forthcoming 2019 Presidential elections and to seek their support for Sule Lamido.
Elayo said Sule Lamido had passion for a united and prosperous Nigeria, adding that if elected President, he would unify the country and redeem Nigeria’s reputation in the global community.
On herdsmen/farmers crisis, the DG said Sule Lamido has what it takes to end the killings given his track record on ending the herdsmen/farmers clashes in Jigawa and preventing Boko Haram from infiltrating the State.
