- It seems former governor, Sule Lamido, has kick started his 2019 presidential bid
- Campaign posters of the former governor have hit the streets
- He is also receiving the backing of some northern elders
The campaign posters for the 2019 presidential election of former Jigawa governor, Sule Lamido, have surfaced.
The former governor has been at the forefront of those showing their interest to run for the presidency in 2019 and replace President Muhammadu Buhari.
NAIJ.com had earlier reported that his campaign posters were seen at the Peoples Democratic Party secretariat in Lagos and that he has received the backing of some northern elders.
Lamido 2019 presidency project was said to be championed by some northerners who were PDP members in Lagos state.
One of them, Hassan Mohammed, an official of the party at Ikeja Ward I said they were calling on Lamido to contest because they believed he had the capacity to rule the country.
Mohammed said: “We have seen his performance as governor of Jigawa state for eight years. He is indeed a man of the people and he has that pedigree and reputations to fly the party’s flag come 2019.”
Ahead of the 2019 election, NAIJ.com spoke with some Nigerians about whether they would vote for Governor Ayodele Fayose if he contests for president. See their reactions below:
