– Sule Lamido, the former governor of Jigawa state, has replied the federal government
– Lamido was said to have attacked President Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-corruption war
– He said the Presidency’s reaction is a clear sign that it is suffering from ignorance of leadership
Sule Lamido, the former governor of Jigawa state has said that the attack on his person by the Presidency showed clearly that the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led administration was ‘suffering from leadership ignorance’.
Daily Times reports that Lamido on Tuesday, November 14, described Mallam Garba Shehu, the president’s senior special assistant on media and publicity, as ‘an aide too desperate to win president Muhammadu Buhari’s loyalty’.
NAIJ.com gathered that he made this known through his aide on social media, Mansur Ahmed.
According to him, ”I made it clear in one of my interviews that the case in court was a fallout of the’ civil war’ within my party, the PDP ahead of the 2015 presidential polls and that the Buhari administration had no hand in it.”
”But if Garba Shehu is drawing a conclusion on a case that is yet to be decided, I leave Nigerians to judge between Garba Shehu, his paymasters and Sule Lamido, who is intellectually bankrupt.
”And talking about morals, if he indeed Garba Shehu knows what is called morality, should he still be hanging around the Buhari administration? He is only exhibiting brazen desperation to win Buhari’s loyalty at all cost.
”I leave the court to decide on the matter before it as I won’t want to say anything further on that.
”But suffice it to say that even in the matter, no where was I accused of stealing Jigawa ‘s money. But like I said, I have implicit faith in the judiciary to deliver justice.
”The presidency’s reaction is a clear sign that it is suffering from ignorance of leadership. The former Jigawa State governor, who has since indicated his interest in 2019 presidency further.”
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had reported that the Presidency reacted to alleged verbal attacks on President Buhari’s anti-corruption war by Lamido.
