Sule Lamido Blasts PDP Leaders, Urges Fubara To Reject Peace Deal

Former Jigawa State governor Alhaji Sule Lamido has berated the national leadership of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for their failure to meditate in River State political crisis, which he said, had given a “free hand to rapacious scavenger, the APC, to key in with ulterior motives of stealing the party’s fortune.”


Lamido, one of the PDP’s founding fathers, expressed his anger against the party’s leadership on his Facebook page and urged them to wake-up from their deep slumber to do what is expected from them before it becomes too late.

He said, “The PDP has all leadership structure including National Working Committee (NWC), but one shall wonder how come their total absence in the saga playing out in the party’s family in Rivers? Is the docility of the leadership of the PDP so comatose to the extent that President Tinubu of APC, our sworn rival and opponent is now the grand patriarch of the PDP?

“It is inconceivable that a political party will simply sit back and allow its fortunes to be taken over by a rapacious scavenger, the APC. What President Tinubu did in the so-called peace meeting is not brokering peace in Rivers State, but using his office to enhance the fortunes of his political party,” he said.

Lamido continued, “The PDP National Executive Council (NEC) should feel sufficiently embarrassed if not slighted by the action taken by President Tinubu to reward a political mercenary with PDP fortunes in Rivers State.

“More to the eternal shame of PDP NWC that a tribal voice of the Ijaw through Chief Edwin Clark press conference has to be deployed to challenge the illegality and unconstitutionality of the peace accord.

“Like Chief Clark said in the press conference, if Tinbu as the then governor of Lagos State could stand up and fight former President Obasanjo with awesome power and personality and endure to overcome, can’t he PDP do likewise? The PDP must take off from where Chief Clark started to fight this illegality through our justice system and all other legal means possible!


“If the national executive of the PDP does not have the nerve to stand up and protect its own, it should honorably step down to allow for the election of competent hands,” Sule Lamido declared.

Lamido however urged Governor Fubara to not honour the documents he signed because they didn’t not represent the true and sincere political conflict resolution.


“Governor Fubara signed the document under an environment not friendly to real conflict resolution and it was presided by the force of fear, intimidation and blackmail. Therefore he shall shred the document and toss it into the trash can,” Lamido stated.

“There are many areas yearning for peace in the country where President Tinubu’s.
