By Ikenga Chronicles January 3, 2017

Ahead 2019 Presidential Election, Jigawa State former Governor Sule Lamido, has vowed that he would never allow himself to be cowed by those in power to drop his presidential aspiration.

He also warned leaders to beware of dangers of tyranny, impunity and abuse of human dignity.

The former governor made this declaration at the weekend after loads of heavily armed policemen were sent to Bamaina village of Birnin Kudu to stop a planned rally organised by hundreds of youths calling on him to contest the 2019 presidential election.

Recall that thousands of PDP Youths had gathered in Jigawa to anoint Sule Lamido as the PDP presidential candidates in place of the Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar who has also be nursing such an ambition.

Reacting to the development, Lamido said, “The desperation by those in authorities of power today must know that the same God that made Balewa, Ironsi, Gowon, Murtala, Shagari, Buhari, Babangida and Jonathan Presidents could do the same for me if Allah so wishes.

“All this coercion and intimidation was because of my aspiration and I must tell them that no matter what, if Allah has destined that I will be President, they cannot stop me or deter me because that will amount to fighting against the wish of God.’’

He further said in his interaction with news men on the situation that leaders should beware of the consequences that followed “tyranny, impunity and abuse of human dignity”.

While declaring that he had long passed the stage when he can be intimidated by any one, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, chieftain said, “those policemen that made people to lie on their bare backs simply because they were coming to meet me should also note that they are no better people than those they have punished”.

Recently, President Muhammadu Buhari’s government has also been accused by Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, and some other critics of employing every tactics to cow and intimidate everyone it perceived would be a strong opposition to Buhari’s continuation in power in 2019.
