Former Jigawa governor Sule Lamido has berated Labour Party’s presidential candidate Peter Obi as a “morally compromised” politician.
He also described Mr Obi’s presidential ambition as a “social media thing.”
“The younger generation goes after fancy things,” Mr Lamido, a 73-year-old career politician, said. “Peter Obi is morally compromised, he should have stayed in the All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, and promoted the party in Nigeria.”
“He came from a sectional party, a party from a particular enclave and that is what made him what he is,” Mr Lamido continued, “Now, if he believes in the history of APGA and his own philosophy after coming to PDP, he shouldn’t have gone to the Labour Party.”
Mr Lamido asserted that Mr Obi was “now becoming nomadic, going from party to party but he is a good man.”
“What is happening with him is a social media thing,” Mr Lamido added.
