Sule Lamido, former governor of Jigawa State, says he cannot go into a mosque to pray for President Muhammadu Buhari.
Speaking in the interview with BBC Hausa, Lamido said he cannot pray or advise someone who chased his party out of power.
“You can’t say in the past 60 years of our independence that there is no progress, there is,” he said.
“But, honestly, our leaders are not taking advantage of the natural resources we have in the country to make us progress and live better.
“I am from an opposition party, no matter how much I love Buhari or his cabinet, I can’t enter mosque and pray for him.
“People called us (PDP) thieves and voted APC.
“So, it is left for them to judge now.
“If Buhari is doing good, they know and let him lead Nigeria forever, but if he is doing wrong, we are always there to come and takeover in order to do the right thing.”
