DUTSE—Former Jigawa State governor, Sule Lamido, yesterday, stressed the need to get competent hands to steer the nation out of its present problems, describing leadership as the risk facing the country.
Receiving some senior editors from Kano and Jigawa states as well as the executives of the North-East Democracy Enrichment Initiative, who called on him in his hometown, Bamaina, to console him on the death of his daughter, Hadiza Sule Lamido, the former governor said at present, Nigeria was in a dire need of competence to replace nepotism in order to redress the anomalies.
