PostSubject: 2015: Why Gov Lamido endorsed Jonathan for Presidency .   Thu 18 Dec 2014, 5:16 am

Indications emerged last night that
the leadership of the Northern
Governors’ Forum scored a big
political point on Thursday by
convincing the Jigawa State
Governor, Alhaji Sule Lamido to
endorse the presidential ambition of
President Goodluck Jonathan in 2015.
Competent party sources told
Saturday Vanguard that the chairman
of the Northern Governors’ Forum
and Niger State Governor, Dr.
Babangida Aliyu, who is said to have
the ears of the Jigawa governor, was
given the task to work on Lamido to
join the train in endorsing Jonathan.
Jigawa State Governor, Alhaji Sule
Lamido to endorse the presidential
ambition of President Goodluck
Jonathan in 2015.
To get the governor to join his
colleagues in giving his assent to
Jonathan to fly the PDP flag, Aliyu
reportedly told Lamido that Jonathan
had accepted to abide by all the
commitments that he made to
Jigawa people during his
electioneering campaign in the state
in 2011.
Top on the list of the commitment
extracted from Jonathan for Lamido
is that the Presidency will refund the
sum of over N15 billion expended by
Lamido to build the Dutse
International Airport, a project which
the Federal Government promised to
undertake but failed.
Similarly, the Presidency also agreed
to undertake the immediate
construction of the Auyo Irrigation
Project, which was started by the
Shagari Administration but
abandoned and has remained an
electioneering topic by successive
presidential candidates and parties.
Besides, the Federal Government, it
was learnt, also agreed to construct a
major road in the state to connect
the state-owned university at Kafin
Hausa, as a means of appeasing the
governor and his people.
A top source in Jigawa said that
Lamido accepted to support
Jonathan’s candidature at the PDP
NEC meeting in Abuja on Thursday
because according to him “there has
been a commitment” by President
Jonathan to fulfill his campaign
promises to the people of the state.
“All along, Governor Lamido had
insisted that he would only support
the president if he fulfilled his
campaign promises to the state and
not that he wanted to replace him as
some persons were insinuating, a
top official said.
But the Director of Press to Governor
Lamido, Mr. Umar Kyari, who spoke
on the phone from Saudi Arabia,
pointed out that the governor had
never had any disagreement with
Jonathan on the issue of running for
the same office.
“As a matter of fact, the governor has
never declared his intention to
challenge Jonathan in the
Presidential race but it was only his
admirers, who suggested that based
on the brilliant performance he has
put up in the state, he could
replicate same if he becomes the
president of Nigeria,” Umar
explained.
“It must be made abundantly clear
that governor Lamido has never told
anyone that he was going to
challenge Jonathan in the
presidential election in 2015,” the
spokesman stressed.
It would be recalled that Lamido had
distanced himself from the initial
endorsement of President Jonathan
by the North-West Zone of the PDP
two weeks ago but did not give any
reasons.
The development was then taken to
mean that he was ready to slug it out
with Jonathan at the polls come
2015. But the position changed
dramatically when Lamido turned up
at the NEC meeting of PDP and
endorsed jonathan as the sole candidate for the presidential race next year.
