" I am here to inform you categorically that the government and people of Jigawa state completely dissociate Jigawa people from the purported endorsement of President Goodluck Jonathan for the 2015 presidential election. We are not part of it and we don't support because the communique was prepared even before the meeting started."
He said Governor Sule Lamido and the people of Jigawa remain 100 percent loyal to the PDP but they are not part of the communique calling for Jonathan to contest 2015 presidential election.
Gumel told Journalists that in 2011 the people and government of Jigawa especially Governor Sule Lamido supported President Jonathan wholeheartedly adding that Lamido was called all sorts of name then but the President never fulfilled all the electoral promises he made to Jigawa.
The Deputy Governor said there is no basis for supporting Jonathan in 2015.
