Dutse — Governor Sule Lamido of Jigawa State, has faulted the recent claim by the media committee of Buhari’s campaign directorate that President Goodluck Jonathan has directed him to campaign against Buhari, saying that the claim was mischievous and misleading.

He also warned General Muhammadu Buhari to consider former Vice president Atiku Abubakar and Kano State governor Rabiu Kwankwaso as his real enemies.

Governor Lamido, yesterday, during the rally of Malam Aminu Ringim, the state Peoples Democratic Party, PDP governorship candidate, at Garki Local Government Area of the state, said he was too big to be used to campaign against Buhari because when it comes to political game, “I am not afraid of anybody.”

He stressed that if he wanted to say anything about General Buahri, he would say it without fear, adding he had expressed his mind in the past.

“There is no amount of hatred, harassment and intimidation by any political party that will stop the PDP from winning this month general elections in Nigeria.”

He expressed optimism that President Jonathan will win the coming Saturday presidential election, considering the popularity and acceptability of the PDP by Nigerians.

He noted that across the country, the PDP has done well and deserves victory at the polls going by the figures and a careful analysis made of the situation of things in the country.

On the former Vice President, Abubakar and Kano State governor, Kwankwaso, he insisted that they were real enemies of Buhari.

“I have never been an enemy of General Buhari. We don’t share the same political ideology and so I cannot pretend to admire his political beliefs, but Abubakar and Kwankwaso are his greatest antagonists because he scuttled their presidential ambitions when he won their party primaries.”
