A presidential aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Dr Sule Lamido has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of dehumanizing Nigerians like he did in 1983.
Lamido speaking in Benin City, Edo State on Thursday while addressing delegates ahead of the October National Convention of the party, insisted that Buhari who staged a coup in 1983, removed the political class and clamped them into prisons, “is the same Buhari doing the same thing today, dehumanizing humanity.”
He urged Nigerians to join hands with his party to rescue the country from the clutches of President Buhari and the All Progressives Congress, APC.
The former Jigawa State governor said “For us to have a country which belongs to all Nigerians in a federation, we must have equal rights and opportunity. Every Nigerian has the right to access power whether from the North or South.
“PDP made some mistakes. Some of its members were reckless but they are humans. Time will cure us because they are humans. Some us are calling Buhari’s name because we don’t have institutions. The economy is very weak, no security, no bureaucracy, and no standing institutions to protect all of us in terms of justice and fairness. One single human being is appropriating Nigeria as if it is his own.
“Today, this party of saints called the APC is a party of pains, hunger, anger and evil and where are we today? It is a party which has no historical foundation, no philosophy, ideology.
