Former minister of foreign affairs and two-term Jigawa state governor Alhaji Sule Lamido has accused the government of the All Progressives Congress (APC) of causing disunity amongst Nigerians since the time it took over the mantle of leadership in 2015.
Alhaji Sule Lamido said this today at the formal inauguration of a 39 man reconciliation committee of the state People’s Democratic Party (PDP) at the party headquarters in Dutse
The former Governor said the APC had before taking over accuses us (PDP members) of breeding ‘Boko haram’, corruption and all forms of evil are being associated with us”, he stated.
Lamido added that “even though they accused us with Boko Haram, today a more daring criminality of banditry and kidnapping is being perpetrated under their nose without any solution in sight”, he stated.
He said, “people are being maimed, killed in their homes, towns, and villages completely sacked while their women were subjected to utter humiliation under the watchful eyes of those in power today”, he said.
Lamido charged the members of the reconciliation committee to be just and fair in their approach to aggrieved members for their work to be effective.
He said, ” when making the effort of reconciling we have to forgive and let go of our perceived grievance to enable the healing process to take place for the sake of the country”, he pleased.
The former governor appeal to those aggrieved members to put the party before themselves and remember that they were once chosen as either political appointees or elected members over and above some other members that might not have been happy at that time.
On his part, the chairman of the state PDP Dr. Babandi Ibrahim said the party will do everything humanly possible to ensure that every aggrieved member is contacted.
