SOKOTO – Sheikh Yusuf Alibawa, a Sokoto-based Islamic scholar on Monday cautioned politicians seeking elective offices in the forthcoming general elections against engaging in desperate measure to actualise their ambitions.
He said anything short of that would not be tolerated, hence the need for the political class, especially those seeking elective offices, to regard election as opportunity to contribute to the political growth of the society.
He said that free, fair and credible elections would only be possible in atmosphere of peaceful coexistence.
He said that Nigerians desired to have credible and committed leaders that would ensure good democratic governance. (NAN)
