Former Jigawa State governor Sule Lamido has slammed President Muhammadu Buhari for deploying many military men to Ekiti State for the just concluded governorship election.
Speaking to newsmen in Kano, the chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), wished that 2019 elections won’t be like the just concluded election in Ekiti State.
Lamido said: “The election process in Ekiti was heavily militarized; and I know it shouldn’t be a surprise because we are being led by a former military General who was also a former military Head of State, who was known for arresting political leaders.
“Number two, you see, Buhari only says politicians are this, politicians are that, which means he is not a politician.
“So, I think the election in Ekiti, to me, if it is the wish of the people that is announced as the result, I have no quarrels with it. I hope, also, that this is not the kind of thing we are going to experience in 2019 elections because it will spell doom for democracy.”
