THE immediate past Minister of Information and governorship candidate of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Nasarawa State, Mr Labaran Maku, on Wednesday, sternly warned his followers not to engage the opposition parties either in physical or verbal assault, saying he did not need any blood to become the next governor of the state.
He gave the warning during a press conference in Lafia, the state capital.
Maku, who also admonished both the candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Governor Umaru Tanko Al-Makura and Alhaji Yusuf Agabi of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to call their supporters to order to stop destroying his billboards, further told APGA members not to engage opposition, no matter the level of violence unleashed before, during and after the elections.[pro_ad_display_adzone id=”10″]
According to him, “my billboards are in the heart of the people and they can never be removed. You should not fight because I don’t need the blood of anything to become the governor.
“So, whoever believes in Labaran Maku must not fight, you must not throw stones, even to kill an ant, but defend your polling units.
“No matter the level of violence they unleashed, no matter the level of manipulations, no matter the money they spent for agencies, God will still deliver me on Saturday. It is not about money because in 2011, incumbent government has money than Al-Makura, but there were volunteers, so he believes now that he is in the government, everybody would be bought, money will fail on Saturday,” he said.
