A former Minister of Information, Mr. Labaran Maku, has called on Nasarawa state indigenes to remain focused, steadfast and resist the temptations of voting for leaders based on emotions and financial offers.
Maku made the call Friday while addressing supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) during a campaign rally in Nasarawa Eggon local government area of the state.
According to him, the time has come for the people of Nasarawa state to take a stand and vote out leaders who have failed them.
The former minister said the power to usher in a new phase with selfless leaders “who are sensitive to the yearnings of the people remains in the hands of the electorates.”
He equally called on Nigerians to use the 2023 general elections to take a collective decision for accountability and good governance for a better and prosperous nation, stressing that all the PDP candidates had “what it takes to provide good governance centred on accountability and transparency.”
On his part, the PDP governorship candidate for the state, Dr. Emmanuel Ombugadu, promised to prioritise security, health, education, infrastructure, youths and women empowerment in order to improve the lives of the people of the state.
