The gubernatorial candidate of All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, in Nasarawa State, Labaran Maku, on Tuesday said he would work for the victory of President Goodluck Jonathan in the general elections in February.

He said the people of the state would give their votes to President Goodluck Jonathan in the February 14 polls.

Mr. Maku, a former Minister of Information, said Mr. Jonathan had transformed Nigeria positively, hence the need to re-elect him.

He said, “there is the need for Nigerians to vote President Goodluck Jonathan in the forthcoming polls in order to enjoy more dividends of democracy.

“I call on you to continue to support me and vote me during the February election. When the victory comes, we will all celebrate together.

“I am on a rescue mission, to fight poverty, unemployment and insecurity in the state as well as empowering youths and women in order to be self-reliant.

“It is then that you can continue to contribute your quota to national development.

“All you need to do is to vote President Jonathan as the President and myself as the state governor during the February polls.

“The state is blessed with both natural and human resources, I intend to improve on the economic well-being of my people.

“I will also transform the education sector to an international standard in order to enhance teaching and learning in the state.

“We need to vote President Jonathan during the February polls, considering his laudable achievements in our state and across the country.

“He is a leader that has the interest of the people at heart.”

“President Jonathan has transformed almost all the sectors of the economy and I call on all Nigerians to return him to office for another term.’’

He said that voting Mr. Jonathan for another term is the only way to ensure continuity in the provision of more dividends of democracy.

He appealed to the people of the state to vote him and other APGA candidates in the state in the 2015 election.”
The former minister advised Nigerians to eschew politics of bitterness, religion and ethnicity and embrace peace and tolerate one another irrespective of any affiliation.

Nuhu Maigini, who spoke on behalf of the various ethnic groups, thanked Mr. Maku for his achievements as a former minister.

He assured him of their support and votes during the 2015 elections.

He said, “You have done well during your time as a minister and President Jonathan had also impacted positively on our lives.

    “Mr. maku, a former Minister of Information, said Mr. Jonathan had transformed Nigeria positively, hence the need to re-elect him.” All your statements here simply show who you are. It shows that people like you should never come near governance at all. It means you are just a dubious, an unintelligent, untrustworthy, unclear and imbecile person to make all these statement about jonathan. Isn’t it clear that you are just looking for what you will eat at the expense of Nigerians’ lives? Looking for a post by all means.
    You do not care about uncountable lives that had been taken by Boko Haram. You do not care about the Chibok Girls at all!!! You do not care about many families that have lost their bread-winners. You do not care about unemployment, insecurity and state of things in Nigeria. Big shame on you!!! Have you forgotten that the world is watching you guys? A young man like doing this! You are just a man of no virtue.

    • Separate Us…

      I can’t agree more

      Ayemi: Thank you for not adding or subtracting anything about this crook, maku. His days are numbered.

  • Mike

    No point joining issue with maku who cannot even convince his own party men(PDP) to vote him as their candidate in the govnorship election . The makus or his types abound all over the place. But very soon Nigerians will show his types how not to deceive them, just as he was shown the way out , is the way the deceiving party will also be shown the way out.

  • Preco01

    Lost soul Maku claimed PDP is in his DNA but see where he ended? outside PDP. Lies lies can get you far but not to your destination.

  • nnadoris

    Mr Maku you are on point Mr Jonathan have done well and we will all support him.jonathan is for Nigeria not for north

    • Maria

      …Mr Jonathan have done well…. Another this blood we are sharing on the loose, lol!

      • nnadoris

        If you can tell yourself the truth what is happening his bec northern ppl need power by all means.

      • nnadoris

        Ask buhar on his statement he. Made 2011

  • concernednigerian

    Is Maku not in danger of handing victory to APC in the gubernatorial election if he divides the votes from his eggon ethnic group? Al Makura as the incumbent is poised to benefit from Maku’s wrecking mission. PDP has a good candidate though my preference would have been Senator Danboyi whose personality and campaign posters I was actually impressed with during my visit to Lafia last October.

  • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

    Mr. Maku, you should have advised Mr. President to stay up and listen to a real President delivering the State of the Union Speech in America.

    He would have learnt more than enough if he was sober.

  • samson john

    GEJ as done well let’s all come out and show support by voting him for a second time

  • Guguru

    Is Maku not a living !diot? Why would he use the platform of the APGA to help Jonathan get re-elected? Rather than help APGA provide a suitable presidential candidate, he uses APGA to help the PDP to thrive? Many of these politicians are sick in the head.

    • Remi

      You remember when he was leaving the ministry the workers would not let him go as some shady deals deprived them of their entitlements. So .Maku must be afraid that if he attacks Jona too much he might let loose EFFC on him and you know that will not be pleasant

  • samson john

    Is canvassing for GEJ cos he’s d best candidate
