Mustapha Sule Lamido Career
After completing his secondary education, he first desired to be educated in Railway Engineering when he was actually confronted with the practical side of the Training School in Zaria. After that, he decided to pursue this goal. The opposition of his parents prevented him from beginning a career in the military, and the sad events that were happening in Nigeria at the time prevented him from joining the Nigerian Police. As a consequence, he started working for the Nigerian Tobacco Company in Zaria in the year 1969 as a Quality Control Officer. In this role, he was responsible for determining the quality of the cigarette mixing and packaging processes.
After working his way up through the ranks at NTC, Zaria, he eventually became the Zonal Salesman, first for the North West Zone covering the territories of Gusau and Sokoto, and then for the North East Zone comprising the areas of Taraba, Bauchi, Adamawa, Borno, and Yobe. His employment with the Nigerian Tobacco Company lasted for three years, during which time he covered the states of Plateau and Benue. This gave him the opportunity to gain an in-depth familiarity with the topography and individual characteristics of the entirety of Nigeria’s Northern Region.
In 1972, Lamido started working for Christlieb, first as the Northern Field Manager and then as the Brand Manager. Christlieb was a pharmaceutical company (provisions). In his role as Brand Manager, he was responsible for opening new locations for the company that marketed “on behalf of Beecham” products such as Thermos flasks, Quaker products, Heinz products, Corn flakes, peppermint, Vaseline, and Phensic. As a result of his position, he also had the opportunity to go through Rivers and Cross Rivers, in addition to what are now the states of Delta and Edo. Long before Sule Lamido entered politics, the executive roles he held in companies given him first-hand knowledge of the numerous geographical zones that make up Nigeria. This is one thing that cannot be disputed.
Lamido entered politics when political activities resumed after a brief hiatus in preparation for Nigeria’s Second Republic. He was tortured in accordance with the highest standards of political tradition in the People’s Redemption Party (PRP) during the time that Malam Aminu Kano, a well-known nationalist and legendary apostle of peoples-oriented politics, was in power. He began his career in politics in 1979, when, at the early age of 31, he ran for election to the Federal House of Representatives and won. There, he served as a member of the House Business, Accounts, Water Resources, and Works Committees. This was the beginning of his political career.
In the course of his political career, Lamido has passed through the legislative, party leadership, and executive spheres, all of which are settings in which he has proven his value and left his mark. He has held a number of positions throughout his career, including those of Pioneer Chairman of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), Kano State, Nigerian Agricultural and Cooperative Bank (NACB), Delegate to the National Constitutional Conference in 1995, and Member of G-18, an opposition platform made up of the most well-known Northern Politicians who opposed the self-succession policies put in place by the military ruler at the time.
