2011: Atiku loses Campaign Coordinator to Jonathan

THE Jigawa State chairman of Atiku Abubakar Campaign Organisation, Alhaji Sale Ahmed Danzomo, has resigned from the position and pledged his support for President Goodluck Jonathan.

Alhaji Danzomo announed his resignation in a letter dated December 21, 2010, a copy of which was made available to the Nigerian Tribune in Dutse.

In the letter, which was addressed to the Director-General of the campaign organisation, he said he resigned because the state government and the governor were supporting the presidential aspiration of Presidential Jonathan, adding that doing anything contrary would make him disloyal to the governor.

According to Alhaji Danzomo, “I voluntarily resigned as Jigawa State chairman of Atiku Abubakar 2011 campaign with effect from Tuesday, December 21, 2010,” adding that “I wish to thank the executive committee of the campaign organisation for an opportunity given to me to serve as the state chairman.

“I cannot be a hypocrite. My boss, Governor Sule Lamido, paid his allegiance to President Jonathan. I have no any option but to dump Atiku and go to Jonathan,” he said, adding that he had already handed over to the state secretary of the organisation, Mr Yakubu Ruba.

Alhaji Danzomo, it will be recalled, is currently the Special Assistant to Governor Lamido on Endowments and International Agencies and chairman, Jigawa State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), North-West.

Meanwhile Governor Lamido has castigated the former vice-president and the northern consensus candidate, Alhaji Abubakar, saying that “there is no basis for any PDP member to support him (Atiku), because he spent about three years opposing the party.
