A former Governor of Jigawa State and a former presidential aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Sule Lamido, on Tuesday, said Nigerians must flush out Buhari in 2019 for a better, secure and prosperous Nigeria. Lamido made the call at the Government House in Jalingo when he led his presidential campaign team to consult with the governor, the government and the people of Taraba State in continuation of his tour of the country ahead of the 2019 elections.
He noted that Nigerians had seen the light and would be in a better position to make a real change in 2019. He said, “We must flush out what is called Buhari for a better, secure and prosperous Nigeria in 2019.I want to condole with you over the killings in Taraba. It is unfortunate that Buhari has turned this country into killing fields and today we have to contend with killings in Plateau, Benue, Zamfara, Sokoto, Kaduna states and other parts of the country, yet the President is not bothered that people are being killed on a daily basis.But when Gen. TY Danjuma called on Nigerians to defend themselves, they attacked him. But this was what the Emir of Birnin Gwari and other emirs in the north said before and nobody picked an offence.
