How Lamido’s Travail Is Connected With 2015 – Former Aide

In a swift reaction to the travail by former Special Adviser on Youth and Student Affairs to ex-Governor Sule Lamido, Comrade Danjani Umar, has described his former boss’ challenges in the hands of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) as political witch-hunt.

Umar, who made this known in a telephone interview with Daily Trust while awaiting the arrival of the former governor at the premises of the Federal High Court in Kano, earlier today, said Lamido will be vindicated at the end of the day.

“You see we know what is happening is just meant to tarnish the image of our boss. The whole world agrees that Lamido has performed excellently well in his eight years as governor in Jigawa.

“They are talking about N1.8 billion found in an account traceable to him and I found it laughable.

Here is someone who executed projects, that is the envy of more economically viable states like Lagos and Rivers but nobody is asking where he got the money to do such huge projects.

“There are governors who got more
allocation than Jigawa and did nothing with it
and they are walking free. We the supporters
of Lamido cannot be fooled”, he said.

The former aide said as politicians, they are
aware that calculations for 2019 elections
have begun and those who feel that the ex-
governor, who is considered “the last
standing political general in the PDP in the
North is an obstacle, are at work”.

Umar added that his former boss will

the case.
