Insecurity: We have no leadership in Nigeria - Sule Lamido

President Muhammadu Buhari President Muhammadu Buhari

Former governor of Jigawa state, Sule Lamido, has said the country lacks the leadership to battle the insecurity issues facing the people.

He questioned why Zamfara state is becoming the hub for terrorism in Nigeria.

Lamido said this in an interview with Channels TV, Sunday Politics on September 26.

"Government must be held accountable and I don’t want to sound too political but it is a fact of life. When you want to attain political power the process must be credible.

"Let us put politics aside. What do we do as leaders? We have no leadership in Nigeria, that is the problem and the world is looking at us.

"Above everything else, it is about leadership. Leadership is very important. On the issue of Zamfara, why is the state becoming the hub of terrorism in Nigeria. Why?" he said.

The former governor also noted that President Buhari and his party had no intention of fufilling their 2015 promises. Adding that, they were all lies to achieve power.

"They knew they were telling lies. But for then, it was about getting the power. If they get the power, then they begin to ask, ‘what do we do?’ So, the process and the platform must be very honest; it must be very credible."
