Politics VANGUARD: 2015: Why Gov Lamido Endorsed Jonathan for Presidency



Indications emerged last night that the leadership of the Northern Governors’ Forum scored a big political point on Thursday by convincing the Jigawa State Governor, Alhaji Sule Lamido to endorse the presidential ambition of President Goodluck Jonathan in 2015.

Competent party sources told Saturday Vanguard that the chairman of the Northern Governors’ Forum and Niger State Governor, Dr. Babangida Aliyu, who is said to have the ears of the Jigawa governor, was given the task to work on Lamido to join the train in endorsing Jonathan.

To get the governor to join his colleagues in giving his assent to Jonathan to fly the PDP flag, Aliyu reportedly told Lamido that Jonathan had accepted to abide by all the commitments that he made to Jigawa people during his electioneering campaign in the state in 2011.
