As possible aspirants continue to position themselves ahead of the 2023 presidential elections, former Governor of Jigawa state, Sule Lamido on Sunday, paid a courtesy visit to former President Olusegun Obasanjo at his OOPL Presidential Library residence in Abeokuta, the Ogun capital.
Lamido, who also served as a minister under the administration of the former President, before becoming governor of his state, said the country is bleeding and appealed to Obasanjo to continue to contribute his quota to peace and unity.
“How do we remain safe is the biggest problem and challenge now in this country. Nobody is safe again.
‘Imagine, kidnapping three workers of Baba, a former President of the country? Who is safe again? he queried.
Lamido said his visit to the ex-leader was normal and that he met him “in a very high spirit and good health”.
“He told me that he’s now ageing and I responded that he’s not. We still need him in this country.
“He said, Sule, I will do anything for Nigeria. That is very inspiring. That is why I like him and this reinforces my faith in Nigeria.
“We discussed a number of issues, particularly on Nigeria that he so loved. No matter how down we go, we’ll rise again”, he added.
