To be forewarned is to be forearmed.

That is the message former Jigawa State governor, Sule Lamido is passing across to national leader of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu.

Lamido gave the admonition on Thursday in Abuja, while speaking at the 15th Daily Trust Dialogue with the theme, "Nigeria and the Challenges of 2019."

The former Jigawa state governor who noted that Tinubu had since been sidelined by the Presidency further claimed that Buhari needs Tinubu ahead of the 2019 poll.

Turning to former Lagos state governor Commissioner for Finance, Wale Edun, who represented Bola Tinubu, the former Jigawa state governor said: “Tell Asiwaju that his brother and friend says he is in a wrong party. He will only recover and reintegrate himself as a democrat if he leaves the APC.

"Asiwaju has only integrated six months ago. They were using his governors and ministers from south-west to fight him!  We know all these, he should leave APC for them.’’

In his appraisal of the Buhari administration, the PDP presidential aspirant said he was not surprised by what he called APC incapacity to deliver on its electoral promises as he dismissed the ruling party as a platform created out of desperation for power.
