The former Governor of Jigawa State, Alhaji Sule Lamido, on Friday, 30 June 2017, described the All Progressive Congress led federal government as an ‘obvious anarchy’.
Speaking with journalists at his country home, Lamido said, since APC took over power from PDP, it has been anarchy at all levels.
He stressed that Nigeria has never been divided since decades as it is today. Noting that people are having more divisions now than before. “Sincerely speaking, Nigeria has never been divided like this before now as it is under APC administration. Now, we are having agitations here and there. All these happens because of bad leadership and lack of capability to manage the affairs of the country. “
He also pointed out that the APC led federal government has bridged the highest number of constitutional orders and laws because they operates an anarchist administration. Adding that the APC government has never obeyed any court order since the inception of the administration for over two years.
He said: “let me tell you, APC has no root, they have no organ and that is why their administration is like this, see crisis here and there even within themselves. APC is a party filled with hypocritical elements, say something here and doing a different thing. You cannot hold them by their words and no leader in the world can operate in such an atmosphere and succeed. Check, no one court order they have ever obeyed beginning from the presidency, state level and down to the local government level. They don’t have respect for the rule of law because they have succeeded in instituting anarchist government where you see the President, Governors, agencies are disobeying court orders at will “.
Speaking on the LG elections fixed for July 1, Mr. Lamido said, his party decided to boycott the election because he discovered that there was no level plain ground in the part of the state independent Electoral Commission (JISEC). Maintaining that the JISEC is compromising the process with the ruling party (APC) in the state. Narrating the ordeal that his party (PDP) went through in the process of registration. Lamido said, the state INEC deliberately increased the registration fee for both the chairmenship and the councillorship just to frustrate their efforts as the strong opposition party in the state.
He however, promised to follow all the issues relating to his party to logical conclusion through the court of law.
Mr. Lamido told his supporters who Stormed Dutse to remain calm even as JSIEC promised to go ahead with the conduct of the election in the 27 Local Government areas of the state.
