Jigawa state governor, Sule Lamido has finally joined other governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP to endorse President Goodluck Jonathan for re-election. SAHARA REPORTERS has this story.

Scared of being hunted down on corruption charges by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Governor Sule Lamido of Jigawa today endorsed President Goodluck Jonathan’s bid for a second term in office.

Mr. Lamido had recently vowed to oppose President Jonathan’s re-election ambition in 2015. But a close associate of the governor’s told SaharaReporters that Mr. Lamido had to come to terms with the imperative of shelving his ambition for the fear of incurring investigation and possible prosecution by the EFCC. “The executive governor of Jigawa, Alhaji Lamido, knows that they [President Jonathan’s team] were planning to use the EFCC to harass him if he decided to run,” said the source. He added that the governor realized that the machinery of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was totally in the president’s pocket.

“How can you challenge the president when he has all the money, all the party functionaries are loyal to him, and he can use EFCC anyway he wants,” the governor’s associate added.
