Okechukwu who is the publicity secretary of the South-East caucus of the party said the former governor has to tell Nigerians what his party, PDP could not do while in office for 16 years that he is coming back to correct.

Lamido had declare to newsmen on Monday that he would contest for presidency on the platform of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2019.

Reacting to the declaration on Mnday at the national Secretariat of the APC, Abuja, the APC south-east spokesman said Alhaji Lamido has a constitutional right to run for the office but he must save Nigerians all form of sentiments.

“Why not as long as the person saved us the agony of not telling us that the South has been marginalised or the north has been marginalised then we are on the same berth. It is now incumbent on him to tell us his programme what he want to do that PDP did not do in the last sixteen years or whether for him, PDP did so well, if he tells us the PDP did so well, then we have enough armour and arms to confront him with.

“The most important thing is that he has the constitutional right to run for the office and if he is running for the office, he helps the Nigeria situation. Number one, he will not deal with the issue of ethnicity and religion, he comes from the same ethnic background with President Muhammadu Buhari.

“So at lease he has killed the two fault-lines. But then we should now know what is coming with, we will like to hear from him further what are his agenda, but anybody that parlies along that line, he has save the Nigerian people the headache of ethnicity and religion I welcome that as a person because that is why the issue of the convention of zoning whether written or unwritten means.”

The APC chieftain, however, agreed that it is not too early for anyone to start planning for the 2019 general elections.
