Former Jigawa State Governor, Sule Lamido has said that he is willing to serve as Nigeria’s president.
Lamido also spoke on the need to restructure the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He made the comments during a recent interview with The Nation. Excerpts below:
What are you doing to effect reconciliation in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)?
You don’t know what we are doing and how hard we are working within the party, who we are reaching out, who we are talking to and people we are trying to reconcile. You don’t need to see it on the face book or on the pages of newspapers before you can understand that we are doing it. What we want you to know is the result, which you will know when the time comes.
Many times, you know we do a number of things quietly. When you are talking about reconciliation, people have been offended. So, you need to go there, plead and beg and because all of us, including you people, know that the current national mud is not what we are expecting.
If the APC woos you, will you defect?
Stop the APC from dreaming. They are free to dream. I have been saying so. But, what I am saying is that the APC is a formation of small-small parties. Small party CPC, small party ACN and small party ANPP. Rather than joining me, I’m joining them? No. Since they said we are a party of evils, everything evil is the PDP, why can’t they as saints come and clean us? Let them come to the PDP and purify us.
If you are given a presidential ticket, will you accept it?
You see, you are not given a ticket. You are you earn a ticket. You work to earn it.
If you are offered the ticket, what will be your reaction?
If I am offered a ticket in the PDP in 2019, I will thank God Almighty, and thank those who see in me the element that, yes, I can serve as the President of Nigeria. So, I will offer to serve.
