“We are proud of Lamido’s performance and we are going to tell the world what Lamido did in Jigawa, especially the magnificent airport.’’

The PDP spokesman also commended the state government for executing other people-oriented projects in the areas of education, healthcare, potable water supply, agriculture, youth and women empowerment, among others.

He urged PDP supporters in the state to rally round the PDP administration in the state and to remain focused in order to ensure victory of the party in 2015 election.

Responding, Lamido described PDP as the most consistent party in the last 15 years of uninterrupted democracy in Nigeria.

‘’PDP is consistent and constant throughout this period.

‘’Contrary to the claims by some people that there are crises in PDP, I assure you that there are no crises and I will never it.

“As democrats, we shout; after shouting, we can come back to reconcile our differences.

“I am a product of PDP, born by PDP, dignified by PDP, how can I leave the party that is my sweat and my blood?.

“So, I can’t leave the house I built and move to a house that is not mine.’’ (NAN)
