A former Governor of Jigawa, Alhaji Sule Lamido says the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) will regain power from the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2019.
Lamido, a presidential ticket hopeful, said the ruling party “APC has failed Nigerians who are currently battling with hunger and poverty’’.
Lamido spoke with journalists on Monday shortly after attending a meeting with PDP leaders and members in Ogun.
“We are on course in the effort to make sure the party in 2019 win the presidential election and in every state of the country,” he said.
He urged the electorate to get their voter cards ready in a bid to vote “a more credible party into power, come 2019″.
On the frosty relationship between the executive and legislative arms of government, the former governor urged the two arms of government to allow the rule of law to prevail.
He said the two arms of government are in place to support one another in the overall interest of Nigerians, adding that “no arm of government must encroach on the other’s area of jurisdiction.
“I was in the House of Representatives and the legislature has its own character, its own tradition and its own rules and regulations. They are there to support each other for Nigerians.
“The three of them (arms of government) have to work in tandem to make Nigeria a very strong and united nation.
“When one tries to encroach on the other’s area of jurisdiction, it means you are destroying the institutions. The three are there designed to check each other,” Lamido added.
