Sule Lamido writes PDP members, seeks to lead the party to take over power in 2019

The former Governor of Jigawa, Dr Sule Lamido has written to members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), informing them of his decision to lead the party for the 2019 election.

Lamido in a letter to all PDP members across the country said all the party needs to reposition the country is to take over power in 2019 and bring it back to its path of recovery.




Lamido in a statement issued by his media aide, Umar Kyari lamented that the nation has departed from the dreams of its founding fathers.

“Today, 57 years after the independence of our dear country, can we in all sincerity claim to have achieved the dream of our founding fathers? Where did we fail and from where did we begin to fail? Nigeria with its natural endowment and human capacity cannot be forgiven for being otherwise. We cannot even demonstrate our ability and capacity to meet domestic, regional and global challenges which currently seems to overwhelm us.“

“The PDP will and must lead the nation back into a bright, progressive, and innovative future,” Lamido’s letter reads.
   
“To the world, Nigeria must demonstrate our confidence, tenacity in our ability and capability to address our domestic regional and global challenges that confront us. It is against this background that I offer myself to vie for the office of the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in 2019 if my party finds me worthy to fly its flag,” it continues.
   
“I am no means claiming to be the only capable material, any PDP member, given the trust and support can fly our flag, and I expect many more aspirants will express the desire to run. My hope and prayer is that at the end of all the process which I hope will be open, fair transparent and credible is to give Nigeria in 2019 candidate who will lead the party and Nigeria. This is because there is no alternative to PDP in 2019, it will be a defining moment in the Nigerian political evolution,” Lamido said in the letter.
