Jigawa state governor, Sule Lamido, has denied reports that he is interested in contesting the 2015 presidential election.

He explained that he is not in the new party for the purpose of contesting the presidential position, adding that nothing will stop him from continuous Governor Lamidocrusade against injustice, and for the rule of law, as well as fairness for Nigerian masses.

“I am not bothered about sacking of ministers by president Jonathan, even if they use EFCC or other agency fighting corruption to arrest me after the end of my tenure on May 29, 2015, I will not be perturbed because I am used to going to jail,” he said.

Governor Lamido lamented that poverty and lack of good political policies were the major challenges facing the nation’s political system, stressing that only justice and respect for the rule of law would change the situation.

“I have always said that PDP is the symbol of Nigerian politics. Members need to adhere to the manifesto of its founding fathers which is justice, fairness, equity, transparency and rule of and law”.

He further stressed that PDP as a party was built to become a party for all, saying that it is therefore wrong for a few individuals to think that they can hijack the party for personal interests.
