I Didn’t Desert Nasarawa State, Says Al-Makura

Nasarawa State Governor, Tanko Al-Makura yesterday refuted report that he has deserted the state.

The governor who spoke through his media aide, Ahmed Tukur, noted that he was in the state discharging his constitutional duties.

A statement signed by the media aide to this effect described the said report as not only mischievous but the figment of the imagination of bitter antagonits of the governor who are out to create confusion using devilish assumptions to achieve selfish goals.

The statement reads in part: “The publication needed clarification but for reason best known to the writer who neither contacted the deputy governor, Silas Agara nor did he get across to any government official for clarification as claimed.

“For the avoidance of doubt, Governor Al-Makura is not missing but has been conducting the affairs of the state as enshrined by the constitution of the federal Republic of Nigeria. There is also no iota of truth in the said publication that the governor travelled without officially handing over to his deputy Silas Agara because of a disagreement between the two leaders”.

“The governor and his deputy are having a very cordial working relationship that the people of the state can attest to as well as Senator Abdullahi Adamu and other stakeholders in the state who are happy with the developmental strides of the governor” he explained.

Tukur further said, “The allegation by masterminders of the report of an imaginary face off between the Governor, his Deputy and Senator Abdullahi Adamu only demontrates their envy of the cordiality and good working relationship between the political leaders in the state and are working very hard to create disaffection and divert their attention from their effort to bring the much needed dividends of democracy to the people of the state”.
