The former Jigawa State governor and a presidential aspirant under the PDP, Sule Lamido Faults Buhari , says the President has failed to deliver on any of his core campaign promises of fighting against corruption, reviving economy and improving security in the country.
Lamido explained that Nigeria has become more insecure, impoverished and Buhari’s fight against corruption is targeted at political opponents.
Sule Lamido made the remarks Tuesday while in Yola to canvas the support of PDP delegates ahead of the party’s convention.
While faulting the President on his claim of fighting insecurity in the country, Sule Lamido said the incessant killings of innocent Nigerians and destruction of properties is a sign of failure of the APC government.
Lamido explained that APC has failed to deliver on its campaign promises saying the party has failed to keep to its key agenda on economy, security and corruption as the country has been on a downward descent since APC took over.

“Nigeria has been reduced to a thriving abattoir where killings are now taking place on a daily basis.
“Nigerians are being killed in their scores, in Adamawa, Taraba, Plateau, Zamfara, Birnin Gwari, Kaduna.
“We have become a divided people, and the current government doesn’t even seem to bother that it’s divisive misrule is tearing us apart;
“This is certainly not the Nigeria of our founding fathers who shuttled to and from London to emancipate us and it is not the Nigeria of our dream when we came up with the PDP,” he said.
The Presidential aspirant explained that his intention to vie for the highest job in land was informed by his desire to change the horrible situation Nigerians have found themselves.
Sule Lamido said, “My desire to serve the people and contribute my quarter is to redeem our bad and ailing economy.
