Former governor of Jigawa State, Alhaji Sule Lamido, talks to ARMSTRONG BAKAM about the issues surrounding the PDP’s presidential primary, emergence of Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, as the running mate of the party’s flag bearer, Atiku Abubakar, for the 2023 presidential election, the grievance of the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, among other issues.
He further said the youths believe in fancy;the social media and beyond the social media, there is what we call the local environment where if you are hanging, you have to be dropped.
Go to Kano and mention him (Obi’s name). Go even to Anambra where he served as governor; go there and mention his name, or go to Benue and drop Obi or go to Lagos and mention his name there. You see, these are a younger generation moved by passion and fancy. It is what they fancy in their minds that they write (on social media). Many of them on social media, if you look at them in terms of percentage, how many are they? That they are also coming from a particular environment, their location, villages, local governments, and states, and some things define the political directions of those areas. For example, a boy who is from Sokoto and fancies Peter Obi, what does he do about Peter Obi in Sokoto beyond writing on social media and fancy? You see, I don’t want to be discussing names but then, you are compelling me.
