SULE Lamido, a former governor of Jigawa State, has attributed the recent massive defection from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to the All Progressives Congress, APC, to the fear of possible arrests by the federal government.
Lamido, who spoke on Tuesday, December 6, in his home in Bamaina, Jigawa State, said anybody who wanted to enjoy the air of freedom under the present regime should be ready to pitch his tent with the ruling APC.
The former governor, who had in the past indicated interest to aspire for the presidential position of the country, argued that when government was run on tyranny as being presently witnessed, such government was likely to fail and collapse.
He said apart from running Nigeria on tyranny, the APC-led government lacked the capacity to carry the heavy load of contradictions, crisis and division in the country.
Lamido argued further that no matter how the citizenry wished well for the present administration, its collapse was imminent because of inability.
“Where justice is lost, where you have a government which is not just and fair, people must look for protection. Those defecting from the PDP to the APC are looking for protection.
“The present government in the country will collapse. No matter how well people wished them and how hard you prayed for the government, it will collapse because it has no capacity to carry the Nigerian load, contradiction, crisis and division,” Lamido said.
