The Governor of Jigawa State, Sule Lamido has called on President Goodluck Jonathan to save the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from a total collapse.
The call by the Jigawa state governor whose sons have been arrested for looting over 10 billion naira from the local government funds of the state, is coming at a time when the major leaders of the PDP are defecting for the All progressives Congress (APC).
“I am short of words to express my pain. It is agonising to see the party built in every home, in every village, town and city all over Nigeria with lots of sweat and sacrifice being destroyed.” Governor Lamido wrote in a message to the President.
The ruling PDP lost 37 members of the house of representatives to the All Progressives Congress Wednesday and the APC Chieftains have continued to woo elders of the PDP to its fold in a bid to send the PDP Parking by the 2015 general elections.
The weak President Jonathan, a leader of the party has continued to watch the collapse of his party but that situation the Jigawa Governor in a message to him must be checked as men and women fought for the unity of the PDP.
The statement titled Is it Too Late to Intervene, issued by the Jigawa State Director of Press, Alhaji Umar Kyari said:
“Is it too late for the leader of the party to intervene and save our party? Nigerian democracy must not be truncated.”
