I don't do politics based on religion or ethnicity - Lamido

Jigawa state governor on Thursday re-affirmed his supports to Goodluck Jonathan 2015 re-election bids as the number one citizen of the country.

Governor Sule Lamido, on Thursday came out open that he would do everything possible to support President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan in the 2015 polls.

He stated this while in a meeting in Dutse to unveil campaign programs for the People Democratic Party, PDP, candidates seeking elective position in the state.

"I had a frank discussion with the president today in Abuja and I am convinced that he will redeem his pledges; therefore, I will support him. "Like I have always said, I don't do politics based on religion or ethnicity; a PDP man in Enugu state is closer to me than an All Progressives Congress (APC) man in Bamaina my village," he said.

One good turn deserves another, according to the governor, he is supporting Jonathan based on his commitment to fulfill all campaign promises he made to the state in 2011, some of which he had seen green lights on.

He also said that the president had assured him that the federal government would refund the money spent by the state government to construct Dutse International Airport, and also added that the president further promised him to rehabilitate and complete the Hadejia Irrigation Scheme and the Gaya-Jahun-Miga road project, recalling that they were part of his campaign promises.
