Sule Lamido, Former Governor of Jigawa state has revealed reasons he cannot say a prayer for President Muhammadu Buhari.
Lamido who had an interview with BBC Hausa radio spoke about the state of Nigeria on the occasion of its 60th independence anniversary.
The former Jigawa Governor noted it would be wrong for anyone to claim the country has not recorded any progress in the past 60 years.
However, he said the leaders are not maximizing the natural resources in Nigeria who have resorted to name-calling to blame the opposition for all their inadequacies.
Sule Lamido said:
“You can’t say in the past 60 years of our independence that there is no progress, there is.
“But, honestly, our leaders are not taking advantage of the natural resources we have in the country to make us progress and live better.
“I am from an opposition party, no matter how much I love Buhari or his cabinet, I can’t enter mosque and pray for him.
“People called us [PDP] thieves and voted APC.
“So, it is left for them to judge now.
“If Buhari is doing good, they know and let him lead Nigeria forever, but if he is doing wrong, we are always there to come and takeover in order to do the right thing.”
