The ex-Governor of Jigawa state Sule Lamido has stated that the present crisis bedeviling the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is a sign that the party has great stamina.

 He added that it is only a matter of time and  the party will come out stronger and bigger. According to him him, it is only normal for people to fight for what is “existent, valuable, worthy and important”.

“PDP is a big party that has history and it is a party of conglomeration of all Nigerians across divides,” he said.

“This is not our first crisis; if you go down our history from the formation of the party, you will notice that this is not the first time we are having crisis.

“You can remember that the late Sunday Awoniyi had battle of leadership with former Chairman Banabas Gemade. We also had crisis during Audu Ogbeh’s reign. You don’t fight for what is not in existence. PDP was in power for 16 years and the crisis and fight had always been with us.”

Lamido noted that no matter the rift between Ahmed Makarfi and Modu Sherrif about the chairmanship of the party, the duo still remains adent member of the party. He was confident the party will surely settle every score within its circle.

 “PDP will return to power in 2019 because it is a conglomeration of Nigerians,” he said.
