Governor Sule Lamido of northern Nigerian state of Jigawa on Sunday urged the electorate in the state to vote out defectors of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to All Progressives Congress (APC) in February elections.
Lamido gave the advice in Buji, Buji Local Government Area of the state, at the commencement of local government PDP campaign rally for governorship and other candidates seeking elective positions.
He said that all defectors seeking for re-election or higher positions with the mandates of PDP were not deserved to be voted for in the upcoming general polls.
According to him, all those that left their party for other political parties are nothing but betrayers and traitors.
“I am urging you, the voters, to wait for them and teach them a lesson during election, tell those who are not here that I gave such directive,” he said.
The governor presented all the candidates seeking for election on the platform of PDP in the area and those of governorship and deputy governorship candidates to the people.
In his remarks, the governorship candidate, Malam Aminu Ibrahim, pledged to consolidate on the achievements of Lamido, if elected.
Ibrahim, however, appealed to the electorate to come out enmasse and vote for him and other PDP flag bearers.
