Former Governor of Jigawa State, Alh. Sule Lamido on Saturday 3rd of August met privately with PDP Presidential Candidate and Former Vice-President, Atiku Abubakar in Dubai.The leader of the ‘Talakawas’, Lamido was accompanied by Alhaji Mustapha Sule Lamido and Abubakar Sule Lamido.
Below is the statement, in part, signed by Atiku’s media adviser, Paul Ibe;
“The administration has been groping in the dark since 2015, the reason majority of Nigerians decided not to reward their failures during the February 23 presidential poll consequently leading to the heist that characterized the conduct of that poll.”
“A Commander-in-Chief, who fits the bill will not act unconstrained about reports from a reputable media organization on welfare and wellbeing of troops at the frontline of combat. Shamefully, however, up till this moment, the Buhari administration won’t cause even a blinker on the damning report. Like is the case with other dysfunctional aspects of the system, his (Buhari’s) administration prefers to live in denial, relying on propaganda – the only machine that they know how to operate without a glitch.”
“We need to restate that Atiku Abubakar respects the practical purpose of the judiciary as an arm of government saddled with the responsibility of dispensing justice. Therefore, for the Buhari administration to call out the judiciary on how they might choose to do their job is not only an emotional blackmail to the bench, it is also very disrespectful to the integrity of the honourable justices of the court of law.”
