Obasanjo Supports Lamido’s Presidential Race


Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has hailed the bid by former Jigawa State Governor Sule Lamido to contest for the People’s Democratic Party’s (PDP’s) presidential ticket.

Obasanjo spoke yesterday when Lamido and members of his national campaign council visited him in Abeokuta, Ogun State over his 2019 presidential ambition.

A statement by social media aide to Lamido, Mansur Ahmed, quoted the former president as saying: “As a former Minister of Foreign Affairs, Sule knows the world and knows how to relate with other countries of the world. I was so happy and elated by what I saw in Jigawa State when you became a governor.

“Sule, I don’t have any doubt about your attributes, your capacity, your courage, your interest about your state and Nigeria at large. Sule, you can do it and you can do it well.”

Lamido, why speaking on the reason behind his visit, said: “I have nothing to tell you about me because you know me more than anybody. I have come to greet you, brief you, seek for your blessings and ask for your fatherly advice.”
