Atiku Begs Lamido To Step Down For Him Atiku by gbenatom(m): 6:40am On Sep 11, 2018
Former Vice-President and PDP
presidential aspirant Atiku
Abubakar is pleading with
former Jigawa State Governor
Sule Lamido to step down for
him in the party’s presidential
primary.
The former vice president
made the plea yesterday at the
Jigawa State PDP secretariat.
He was in the state to seek
support ahead of the
primaries.
Atiku visited the former
governor in his Bamaina
country home.
Atiku said his visit was to seek
Lamido’s support.
He explained that he “did not
go to Jigawa to campaign but
to visit PDP members and his
junior brother Sule Lamido”.
Atiku related the incident with
what happened in 1993
election under the Social
Democratic Party (SDP) in
Katsina State where two
brothers – Shehu Musa
Yar’Adua and Umaru Musa
Yar’Adua were contesting. The
latter stepped down for the
former.
He recalled that elders told
Shehu Musa Yar’Adua that
there was no way they could
support him as president and
support his brother as the
governor.
“Junior brother cannot contest
against his senior brother. The
junior brother instantly
stepped down for his brother
due to his loyalty,” he said.
Atiku explained that the
country needs repairs because
of what he called a system
failure around all sectors,
including security and
economy.
“The government inherited an
economy growing at about
7% and crashed it to
recession in its first year and
currently going below 2%,”
Atiku noted.
“Most of the parts of this
country are currently feeling
excluded” Atiku added.
To the former Vice-President,
the APC administration is a
failure and disappointment. He
advised Nigerians to votes out
APC next year.
Lamido said the visit was a
homecoming visit.
All the presidential aspirants
declined to comment on the
issue.

This is sign of humility from Atiku. PDP need strong coalition to eradicate the cancer APC in Aso rock. The ground and rocks in Abuja is also shaking against this lying government.
