Jigawa State Governor, Sule Lamido, on Thursday, May 15, 2015, has said that Nigerians would not accept excuses from the President-elect, General Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressive’s Congress (APC)  because they did not give any conditions when their election promises were made.

There have been series of statements from General Buhari seemingly backtracking on various campaign promises he made.

The governor said Nigerians are expectant and would not tolerate any excuse from the APC.

Lamido, who spoke with journalists in Minna, Niger State, blasted the APC, saying the party ran a divisive campaign.

“They tried to break and distort Nigeria harmony. They tried to turn tribe against tribe, brother against brother, raising false hope. They must fulfill all their promises because there was no condition of good or favorable economy when they were making these promises.

“Do not give any excuse because we will not tolerate any excuse because there was no condition given when they were soliciting and asking for votes.”

Lamido accused the APC of not raising any developmental issues while campaigning, saying the party was busy bcastigating the Peoples Democratic Party.

“During campaigns, APC were busy blacklisting the PDP, they did not raise any developmental issue. They were busy harping on Nigeria problems which include Boko Haram, corruption and other security issues. ‎They didn’t know that a day of reckoning will come. Now, they have to fulfill all those promises they made,” he stated.
