Lamido Rules Out Bid For 2011 Presidency


Governor Sule Lamido of Jigawa State said on Monday he was not interested in the 2011 Presidential race.

“Honestly before God Almighty I am not interested. I am too old for that kind of thing. It should be left for the next generation,’’ Lamido told newsmen at  the Murtala Muhammed Airport before his departure for Jigawa.

On the zoning of the presidency to the Northern part of the country by the ruling PDP, Lamido said that although the zoning of the presidency is in the party’s constitution, the nation’s constitution is superior to that of any party.

“ You see in a country there is a lot of chemistry and somehow no matter how tough things may be, it has to be left for the people of the country to solve their problem”.

“But again, the Nigerian constitution is superior and people are free to sort out their own views and opinion,’’ he said.
