Former Governor of Jigawa State and presidential hopeful on the platform of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Sule Lamido, on Monday, consulted the Akwa Ibom State Chapter of the party to inform them of his interest to run for the 2019 Presidential Election and to also solicit their support for his ambition.

Alhaji Lamido expressed his readiness to serve Nigerians through the platform of PDP, maintaining that his decision to vie for the Presidency was predicated on his desire to restore the vision of the party’s founding fathers to ensure unity, justice, equity and fair play.

According to him, “There is so much wisdom, capacity, dexterity and goodwill in PDP. So, I am here as your brother, fellow party man, and a friend to engage you and declare that I have made the decision to offer myself to serve the country, which we have called our own. So, if you find me worthy of your trust, mandate, together we will restore unity, equity, justice and fair play in Nigeria. My aspiration is not desperation and it is only your support that can guarantee my success story in 2019.”

“We are happy that you have come to consult and seek our support. Our leaders are all here to discuss and they have commitment to the success of your aspirations,” he maintained.

Obong Ekpo added that with the delegate strength of Akwa Ibom, the state has become the vote basket of Nigeria as 2019 beckons.
