‘Buhari integrity is a fraud’ —Lamido
The immediate past governor of Jigawa State, Sule Lamido has faulted the much hyped integrity of President Muhammadu Buhari, describing it as fraudulent.
Lamido, a former Foreign Affairs Minister. stated this on Thursday after submitting his Expression of Interest and Nomination forms as a presidential aspirant at the national secretariat of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
The presidential hopeful also boasted that the PDP would coast home to victory if he is given the party’s ticket for the 2019 Presidential election.
He said: “There has been integrity before Buhari, there has been honesty in Nigerians before Buhari. So, integrity is not an invention of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
“Before Buhari, even our anthem says the labour of our heroes past. Before Buhari, we had Obafemi Awolowo, Ahmadu Bello, Nnamdi Azikiwe, Aminu Kano, Tafawa Balewa and these are people of integrity. And Buhari has never for once, paid tribute to them.

“Wherever he goes, he destroys history, reinvent it, re-write it and say he is the only person with integrity. Before Buhari, there has been integrity, honesty and he is going to leave all these behind. Beyond and after Buhari there will be Nigeria. So Buhari integrity is a fraud.”
Speaking on his chances to unseat incumbent President Buhari at the general election, Lamido said his consistency stands him out among other aspirants.
“I am not bragging. This party has gone through hell. In 2015 hell was unleashed on us. So here in this house we have been brothers and sisters, consistent, steadfast and we are ready to do everything to save Nigeria.
“And so in picking the Presidential candidate of the PDP, the choice is beyond PDP, it is also a choice of Nigerians.”
