The gubernatorial candidate of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Nasarawa State, Labaran Maku, has said he is still in the race for the governorship of the state.
Maku’s position was as a result of rumors making the rounds that he had stepped down for a particular governorship candidate in the state.
The APGA governorship candidate’s position was made known by Nawani Aboki, Director General, Labaran Maku Campaign Organisation and made available to journalists in Lafia, yesterday.
According the statement: “The Labaran Maku Campaign Organisation has been inundated with calls and messages emanating from various individuals and organisations to the effect that announcements are on-going at various fora alluding to the fact that His Excellency, Labaran Maku has either stepped down from the gubernatorial race or is the preferred candidate of certain organisations”.
“The campaign organisation wishes to reiterate for the umpteenth time that Labaran Maku will not drop out of the race for governorship of Nasarawa State neither has he gone into alliance with anybody and/or political party to surrender the position to them.”
“The campaign organisation wishes to inform all that the time for His Excellency, Labaran Maku to drop out of the race is past and that he will certainly be on the ballot for the governorship elections which comes up on 9th March, 2019. All those who are currently using their privileged or God-given positions to make announcements to the contrary are kindly urged to desist from such ungodly acts”.
“We advise all parties and candidates who are spreading the rumours of a stepping down or alliance to kindly focus their campaign on the issues that presently assail the people of Nasarawa State”.
