A former governor of Jigawa State and chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Sule Lamido, has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of attaining power through lies.
According to the former Foreign Affairs Minister, the APC will not live beyond the 2023 election.
While insisting that the PDP would regain power in 2023, Sule Lamido said the ruling party has failed to fulfill its promises and its leaders exposed as liars.
The former Jigawa governor told DailyTrust in an interview that President Muhammadu Buhari is encouraging defection into the ruling party.
He accused the president and APC of using blackmail to get members of the opposition into their fold.
“For Buhari to now receive PDP members in the Villa, that is irresponsible. This means corruption because to steal PDP’s ticket and take it to another party is the worst corruption ever,” Sule Lamido said.
On plans to convince him to join the APC in 2014, he said, “I refused to go because I did not think they were sincere. And they are dubious in their approach. They lack simple courtesy. How would they abuse me and come back to me, saying something different?
“In all our aspirations and divisions as citizens of this country, politicians or activists, we should put Nigeria first. Let Nigeria be built, whether you are in the APC or PDP.”
