Lamido’s presidential posters flood Kano
The presidential posters of Jigawa State Governor Sule Lamido are flooding Kano streets.
The posters were everywhere, on Club and Hadejia roads, as well as at Bompai and other strategic locations. They read: ‘Vote for Lamido as PDP (Peoples Democratic Party) presidential candidate in 2015.’
Governor Lamido has not declared any intention to run for the Presidency on the platform of PDP.
Political observers believe the posters may have been pasted by Lamido’s loyalists and friends, who are convinced he has the charisma and is qualified to run for the Presidency.
One of the governor’s loyalists, Alhaji Ibrahim Muhammad, said there was nothing wrong if the governor contested the poll.
Asked about the possibility of President Goodluck Jonathan contesting, he said: “For now, Mr. President has not declared his intention to contest. But if he does, there is nothing wrong if anybody slugs it out with him at the primaries.”
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has been tactically campaigning for Lamido to contest the presidency on PDP’s platform.
