Photo: Sule Lamido’s campaign posters flood Abuja for 2019 Presidency

Just 3 days after Nigeria celebrated its 2017 Democracy Day which also marked President Muhammadu Buhari’s two years in office, the 2019 Presidential campaign posters of an ex-governor of Jigawa state, Sule Lamido have flooded some parts of Abuja – the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

As early as 6am on Thursday, the posters of Lamido with the inscriptions: “Dr Sule Lamido for 2019”, written beside a photograph of the ex-governor in which he beamed with smile were seen along Central Business District, Ahmadu Bello Way, Cadastral Zone, Gudu and other strategic locations within the city, indicating that they were posted the previous night.
The campaign posters bore the logo of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

It could be recalled that Lamido had, in January, declared that only God can stop him from becoming Nigeria’s president in 2019, if he decides to contest.

He reportedly made this claim after policemen were deployed to Bamaina village of Birnin Kudu in Jigawa, to stop a rally organized by youths urging him to run in the next general elections.

The former governor had previously attempted to clinch the Presidential ticket of the PDP in the 2011 general elections, but was persuaded to drop his ambition to pave the way for the then incumbent President, Goodluck Jonathan.
