Jigawa State Governor Sule Lamido on Thursday said it was unfortunate that Nigerians refer to the Peoples Democratic Party as “the party of thieves”.
Lamido said this when he met with the PDP in National Working Committee members Abuja.
He said, “Some Nigerians refer to the PDP as party of thieves and fraud. But it is still either the PDP or no other. Nigerians have confidence in us and that is why they keep voting for us.
“Other party draw their strength and inspiration from PDP. Other parties are mere inventions; inventions by frustration.
“From 1998 to date, only the PDP has been consistent. All Peoples Party has become the All Nigeria Peoples Party, Alliance for Democracy is either no longer in existence or it is moribund.
“They are sanctuary of political failures. They vilify PDP every time. And yet, PDP is the only hope for Nigeria. Therefore, we must work very hard. We can’t afford to fail them.”
