Politics is for development, not for destruction - Gov Sule

Ahead of the Saturday election, Nasarawa State, Governor Abdullahi Sule said his ambition is not worth a single life.

The governor stated this at a meeting with the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) in Lafia, Nasarawa State capital. The governor explained that some politicians can go to any extent because of their ambition, but, “my politics is not this kind of politics”.

Sule said that politics is for development and not for destruction; as such every candidate should engage in issue-based campaigns to canvass support.

He added that politicians should join hands with the government to build the state instead of instigating a crisis because of their own ambitions. He frowned at bringing up religious and ethnicity issues into politics.

He said: “Nasarawa State has always been a peaceful place and there are Muslims and Christians in virtually every family, so, the government cannot allow a religious crisis in the state. If the state is not peaceful, even those inciting people cannot have the time to send those messages, as everybody will be on the run.

“Power comes from God and he gives it to whoever he wants at any time, so, as politicians, we should only present ourselves to the people,” he added.
