Lamido: APC Can't Take Nigeria to Promised Land

Written by Alaba Johnson.

Lamido: APC Can't Take Nigeria to Promised Land

The Governor of Jigawa state, Alhaji Sule Lamido, has described the All Progressives Congress (APC) as a party that has no real attributes of democratic ideology that would propel the nation to the Promised Land.

The governor who stated this at the weekend, while receiving the members of Nigerian Guild of Editors that paid him a courtesy visit, said the APC as a political party had no particular history.

Lamido said Nigerians cannot take the risk of handing power to a group of aggrieved politicians that have left their former political parties simply because they were denied tickets to contest for leadership positions.

Stating that the APC without Buhari would not last for three months, he said most of those making noise in the APC today could not dare do such in 1998 for fear of incarceration. Add a comment
