“As the father of the nation, a President is supposed to correct his children and not to curse them. But Buhari called Nigerians thieves. By so doing, he cursed his children,” former Jigawa State governor, Mallam Sule Lamido stated this in Lagos on Friday in a chat with newsmen.
The Presidential aspirant under the umbrella of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, said further, “There are so many thieves in government, public and private sectors. Nigerians should be concerned about the state of the nation by voting for the right person in 2019. We can only reduce our current pains through collective efforts. I feel terribly pained about the things happening in the country. After reviewing everything happening in the country, I concluded that we are reaping the result of the evil we created.”
Recall that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) charged Lamido, his two sons, Aminu and Mustapha and two others including three companies with money laundering.
While his father was Jigawa governor, Aminu was arrested on December 11, 2012 at the Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport on his way to Egypt for failure to declare the $50,000 in his possession. He only declared $10,000 to the Nigerian Customs Service.
