The Sule Lamido National Campaign Council visited Jonathan at his Yenagoa residence in Bayelsa State on Saturday.
Jonathan said the next president of Nigeria would come from the PDP in 2019.

Turning to Lamido, Jonathan said: “You can perform wonderfully well, and I believe the next president that will take over from Buhari, God willing, will be from PDP and the task for him is to unify the country because Nigeria is now divided more than ever

“In 2011, it was too difficult for a northern governor to speak about (President Muhammadu) Buhari, but Sule you made a lot of meaningful political statements that really captured the minds of Nigerians and PDP supporters and you really sold the party to the people.

“I am always happy to listen to you because you know the history of Nigeria’s politics.

“When I was Vice President and later President, I went round Jigawa State to commission a lot of developmental projects.

“Jigawa witnessed a lot of wonders under your administration.

“I know you are somebody who believes in the unity and sanctity of one Nigeria and your political history, philosophy and ideology are all about leftist and humanism not capitalist, I wish you well in all your consultations and campaign.”

Lamido thanked Jonathan for the reception accorded him and his team.

He said: “I am here to formally inform you that I am running for the presidency in 2019 on the platform of our great party, the PDP.

“Sir, I am from the old generation, but I also relate with the new generation.

“I was a former member of House of Representatives in 1979, but I was also a governor from 2007 to 2015.

“So, I am the bridge between the old and the new generation.

“I have been through a lot of political participation, we must think and see how we can give back to Nigeria even for once, because Nigeria has been there for us.

“Nigeria has dignified and honoured us.

“I know your commitment, because you have a large heart, you have been demonised, blackmailed and called names, but you remain silent, resolute and forging ahead in all your activities.

“Sir, I have gone round 35 states and consulted with the party officials, stakeholders, BoT, NWC and our national leaders, including you.

“But as a giant of Africa and leader of the black race, we must rescue Nigeria, this is why I am offering my myself for that role.”
