Former Jigawa State Governor, Sule Lamido has said that he will contest for the Presidency on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2019.
Lamido also said that the PDP is working to bring back its members who defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
The former governor made the comments on Monday, August 8, 2016, while speaking to journalists in the Birnin Kudu Local Government Area of the state.
“If my party finds me worthy of the party’s presidential ticket to serve Nigeria, I will thank God and oblige. Although there are issues in the party that we are all working to resolve, we hope to have success soon and come out united,” he said.
“As I’m talking to you now, we are working silently to resolve our differences and bring back to our fold those that left the party for APC,” he added.
Lamido also said that the internal crisis in PDP was the reason for the party’s defeat in the 2015 elections.
