Nasarawa governor against divisive campaign

12 February 2014, 07:39Augustine Osayande

Abuja - Nasarawa State Governor, Umaru Al-Makura, has advised politicians in the state to shun defamatory statements ahead of the local government elections scheduled for March 22.

The governor gave the advice in Lafia during a meeting with members of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

He urged politicians to “play the game according to the rule” adding that leadership comes from God.

“As politicians determined to serve the people in various positions, it is pertinent for us to conduct ourselves in responsible manner in order to gain the confidence and trust of the electorate,” he said.

Al-Makura urged members of the opposition APC to project the image of the party in good light in their various localities.

“Those who sacrificed in the interest of the party will be carried along to enable them contribute their quota towards the building of the party,” he added.

The interim Chairman of the party in the state, Stanley Buba, said members of the party would ensure the victory of the party during the forthcoming council polls.
