Akure — A group, Youth Alliance for Good Governance and National Unity, YAGGNU has urged the Jigawa State governor, Alhaji Sule Lamido to declare interest in the 2015 presidential election.
The group, in a statement signed by its national coordinator, Reuben Akpah and general secretary, Abu Temitope said it's high time Lamido shows interest in serving the country by declaring interest in the presidency.
The group expressed displeasure over the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan noting that Jigawa State has witnessed rapid development since the inception of the Lamido administration.
"At this critical period of our national development in which our national unity is being threatened by poor infrastructure and insecurity, it is pertinent that we look for a man of integrity, experience and political maturity, above all a nationalist to come and salvage our nation, he should see this as a clarion call to national duty, " it stated.
The group said Alhaji Lamido was a member of National Assembly during the second republic on the platform of Peoples Redemption Party, PRP and the National Secretary of the Social Democratic, SDP the political party which late Chief M. K. O contested and won in 1993 before the annulment of the presidential election saying the experience puts him in a better position to contest.
YAGGNU called on Nigerians to back Lamido and assuring that he has the capacity to deliver and appealed to President Jonathan to remember his promise that he would spend only a single term in office.
