The immediate past Governor of Jigawa State, Sule Lamido has expressed confidence that he can contest for presidency on the platform of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2019, if called upon by the party.
This is just as he said that the party’s ticket was not given to anybody on the platter of gold, adding that a candidate must have to earn it.
He said: “If my party finds me worthy of the party’s presidential ticket to serve Nigeria, I will thank God and oblige.
“Although there are issues in the party that we are all working to resolve, we hope to have success soon and come out united.
“As I’m talking to you now, we are working silently to resolve our differences and bring back to our fold those that left the party for APC.”
The governor also stated that the internal dissent in the PDP was responsible for its defeat in 2015 general elections.
According to him, before the party can rule the country again, all members must work hard to achieve that.
On the rift between him and his successor, Gov. Muhammad Badaru of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Lamido said that both of them had mutual respect for each other and he had no differences with him other than political ideologies.
