Maku begins campaign for Nasarawa governorship seat

The Minister of Information, Labaran Maku, has kicked off his campaign to become the next governor of Nasarawa State in 2015.

Mr. Maku implicitly declared his intention to stand for the office Wednesday, declaring that the All Progressives Congress [APC] will be wiped out of government in the come 2015.

Mr. Maku said as a former student union leader, former commissioner and deputy governor of the state, he is in a better position to identify the problems of the youth.

He said that in 2015, there would be new “generational leadership” in the state.

Addressing party supporters at a meeting with Eggon Political Elders Forum in Endehu, Nassarawa-Eggon Local Government Area of the state, Mr. Maku said the masses in the state have decided to vote out APC government.

“This was evident during the last Local Governments election in the state where PDP won 11 out of 13 LGAs before the result was changed by the state electoral body,” Mr. Maku said.

“Even though that election was organised by APC government, PDP was declared winner in four local government, in addition to so many Councillors apart from the seven that was snatched from the PDP.”

“This is the first time in this country where in an election organised by the state electoral body an opposition party will win some LGA,” said Mr. Maku.

Earlier, Raymond Akolo, the Chairman of the Eggon Forum, said the essence of the meeting was to declare support for President Goodluck Jonathan and Labaran Maku to contest as president and governor respectively in 2015.

He assured Mr. Maku that all the political elders of Eggon extraction will back him to contest the 2015 governorship seat in the state.

The forum also issued a communiqué signed by representatives from all LGAs, zones and groups declaring their support for Mr. Maku to contest governorship in 2015.

    Maku should resign as Minister of the Federal Republic, he shouldn’t use Govt resources(cars, escort, money etc) for his campaign. It’s unethical.

  • Oladapo Adesope

    When you have desperate characters like this ready to create mayhem to achieve a position, do we still need to be told what PDP stands for….these people are monsters claiming to love their people just to get elected…..PDP 15 yrs in power sums up what that party is “devilish”

  • Sadiq

    For PDP to win some LGAs in Nassarawa State LG polls showcase the courage and FairPlay of the Nassarawa government. PDP should imbibe that spirit of sportsmanship and dump the do or die politics.
