Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that former Zamfara state governor, Abdul’aziz Yari has debunked reports that he is leaving the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Yari said the rumours about his purported plan to defect to the PDP is false and should be disregarded.
The former governor said that the social media posts on his purported plan to defect to the PDP is a hoax.
Lamido said the way the APC is handling the affairs of the country is appalling as the party seems to have failed in terms of performance.
He further described the ruling APC as a barren party that is unable to deliver good governance for the country.
The former governor noted that the APC is power-driven and lacks the capacity to bring about the desired change Nigerians are demanding for.
