The chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Jigawa State, Alhaji Salisu Mahmud, has exonerated the state government and the party from having any hand in the recent Lamido /Amechi for president and vice president campaign vehicle sighted in Kaduna State.
It, however, described the proposed joint ticket as an answer to Nigeria’s socio-political crisis.
Mahmud stated this while reacting to the allegation that the Lamido /Amechi campaign vehicle sighted in Kaduna State was sponsored by the state government through the state PDP chapter.
The chairman noted that different political and non-political groups have been calling for Governor Lamido to contest presidential election in 2015, and if that was yearning of Nigerians, the people of Jigawa State were ready to support them in finding lasting solution to the Nigerian problems.
“We in Jigawa know Lamido better than other people, and I am optimistic that if Lamido and Amaechi are given chance to lead this country, they could bail it out from the present difficult condition we have fallen into.
“Governor Lamido has all qualities required for anybody to lead Nigeria; he is a grassroots and seasoned politician with vast knowledge and experience in the history of Nigerian politics and socio-economic problem. He is also a nationalist with a high level of concern for the betterment of the common man; likewise his propose running mate, Governor Rotimi Amaechi.
