Akwanga - The Minister of Information, Labaran Maku, said on Sunday that he would soon quit his position as minister to pursue a selfless aspiration as the governor of Nasarawa State.
Maku said this in Akwanga, Nasarawa State, during a thanksgiving Mass held in his honour at St Patrick’s Catholic Church.
“By 20th of this month, everyone in cabinet or in government who wants to contest election will resign because the time has come for us to pull out.”
“I have always made my interest known. By next week by the Grace of God I will sacrifice the comfort of the office of the minister. I am not tired of my office but I have to make this sacrifice.”

“I will sacrifice my high office in order to come back to the wilderness with my people, the people of Nasarawa State to fight for peace and justice.”
“There is too much blood being shed here. There is too much evil taking place here. There is too much destruction going on in this state.”
“The time has come for us to ask God to bring this era to an end.”
“I will step out, voluntarily and go into the wilderness. God will do it like he did for Moses in the Bible, cut the Red Sea and give us manna from heaven.”
“Being governor will not really add anything to my name I think I have made all the name I need in Nigeria.”
“This sacrifice is because of the difficulties we are facing today, that is why I am making this decision,” he said.
