One of the politicians tipped for presidency in 2019 has attributed the massive defection of PDP to the fear of President Buhari whom he accused of persecuting the opposition party.
A former governor of Jigawa State, Sule Lamido, has attributed the recent massive defection from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the fear of possible arrests by the federal government according to DailyTrust.
Lamido, who spoke yesterday in his home in Bamaina, also said anybody who wanted to enjoy the air of freedom under the present administration must be ready to pitch his tent with the ruling party.
The former governor, who had in the past indicated interest to aspire for the presidential position of the country, argued that when government was run on tyranny as being presently witnessed, such government was likely to fail and collapse.
He said apart from running Nigeria on tyranny, the APC-led government lacked the capacity to carry the heavy load of contradictions, crisis and division in the country.
Lamido argued further that no matter how the citizenry wished well for the present government, its collapse was imminent because of inability.
“Where justice is lost, where you have a government which is not just and fair, people must look for protection. Those defecting from the PDP to the APC are looking for protection.
“The present government in the country will collapse. No matter how well people wished them and how hard you prayed for the government, it will collapse because it has no capacity to carry the Nigerian load, contradiction, crisis and division,” Lamido said.
