A former Governor of Jigawa State, Sule Lamido has cautioned ex-President Goodluck Jonathan against dumping the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Lamido warned that Jonathan risked God’s wrath if he succumbed to the calls that he should dump the PDP for the APC.
Some Nigerians have been calling on Jonathan to defect to the APC and contest in the presidential election in 2023.
Lamido said the former President should consider the suffering of PDP members who stood by him during the 2015 campaign before opting to defect to the APC.
He disclosed that APC persecuted PDP members for supporting Jonathan during the 2015 Presidential election.
“That means all they went through, the pain, the humiliation, for supporting Jonathan in 2014 was nothing. Even Jega (then-INEC Chairman) was not left out. We went through hell in 2014, all for Jonathan. He called me during the election in Jigawa. I said “sir”, and he said, “I hope you are safe”. I said, “don’t worry sir. We are home and dry”. He said, “thank God”.
“How did he get that kind of status? It is from PDP. Now, he is said to be going to APC because of greed, to destroy all this history of his? God will not allow him. If he goes, God will defend PDP.
“If he goes, he will meet the wrath of God. I urge him not to do it. The people courting him now are liars. They lied to get to the government. I urge him in the name of God, the very God that made him from nothing, to think about PDP which made him from nothing. He should please reconsider,” he told Vanguard.
