Obsanjo, Kwankwaso, Atiku working Against Buhari Presidential Ambition

The Jigawa State Governor, Alhaji Sule Lamido, has declared that former President Olusegun Obasanjo will never endorse the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), General Muhammadu Buhari, against President Goodluck Jonathan.

He told New Telegraph in Dutse that even though it was in the human nature to forgive and forget, he saw no reason Obasanjo should back Buhari, who worked with late Head of State, Gen. Sani Abacha, when Obasanjo was jailed.
His word: “Obasanjo was in jail when Buhari was calling the shots under Abacha.
“Who jailed him? Abacha. What was Buhari under Abacha? He was the PTF boss. He knew that Obasanjo was his own Commander-in-Chief.
“By the time voting ends on Saturday, they will come to the ground, knowing that they have been fooling themselves.
“That’s why I said no matter who dies in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the party will remain. It is just like Nigeria. It is not about individuals; it is the people. That is why anywhere you go, the whole idea has been bought by the people.
“In other political parties, they are owned by entrepreneurs who are hallucinating. The fear in APC now is that they are reading the final chapter of their political life.
“That is why the intensity of the falsehood is intensifying. That is not how to win State before Abacha, did Buhari caution Abacha and say ‘look, don’t demystify our national symbol, don’t demystify Nigeria, don’t rubbish our spirit de corps. Let us tolerate him’. He did not say so to Abacha. Obasanjo was head of state before Buhari and Abacha.
“Did Buhari tell Abacha to leave Obasanjo alone? Obasanjo is free now and is seeing Buhari in the spirit de corps. But here was a man who never stood for him in his hour of need, when his life was threatened because he could have died like the late Shehu Yar’ Adua. Yar’Adua died and God saved Obasanjo.
“It is our history. If Obasanjo is now loved by Buhari, it is because God saved him under Buhari and Abacha. For him to now know those who love him and those who hate him is because he is alive.”
Lamido also predicted that the APC will cease to exist after the March 28 presidential election after the defeat it will suffer.
“They should wake up. You can see the desperation because they have sensed it; it is just very clear that they are losing it”, he declared.
Lamido said that even some leaders of the APC, such as former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, Governor of Kano State, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso and a key section of the PDP block, who formed an arm of the APC were not working for Buhari.
The governor pointed out that the APC presidential contestants are still embittered that Buhari, who came into the arrangement with only Nasarawa State as his area of control, picked the ticket of the party.
He said that beyond the propaganda of the APC, most of the people behind Buhari were not working for him. According to him, “Even Atiku too, I know him. It is these same PDP members, who fought Buhari in 2003, 2007 and 2011.
