Governor Sule Lamido of Jigawa on Thursday affirmed that he would do everything possible to support the re-election of President Goodluck Jonathan in the 2015 polls.
Mr. Lamido stated this in Dutse during a meeting to unveil campaign programmes for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, candidates seeking elective position in the state.
“I had a frank discussion with the president today in Abuja and I am convinced that he will redeem his pledges; therefore, I will support him.
“Like I have always said, I don’t do politics based on religion or ethnicity; a PDP man in Enugu state is closer to me than an All Progressives Congress (APC) man in Bamaina my village,” he said.
He said that his support for the president was based on his (Jonathan) commitment to fulfilling all campaign promises made to the state in 2011.
The governor disclosed that Jonathan had assured him that the Federal Government would refund the money spent by the state government to construct Dutse International Airport.
He added that the president also promised to rehabilitate and complete the Hadejia Irrigation Scheme and the Gaya-Jahun-Miga road project, respectively, recalling that they were part of his campaign promises. (NAN)
