GUBERNATORIAL candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, in Nasarawa state, Mr. Labaran Maku, has appeal to his kinsmen, the Eggon Nation to forgive his shortcomings and support his aspiration to become governor of the state in 2019.
Maku, a former Minister of Information, made the appeal at the weekend in Nassarawa-Eggon, while addressing the people at the 2018 Eggon cultural carnival.
“As humans, we are not God, therefore we are bound to offend each other sometimes unknowingly in the cause of carrying out our activities”
“So, some of the actions I took in the past might have offended some of my brothers and sisters, forgive and forget the past so as to enable us forge ahead as a united family”
“I have also forgiven all those that might have wronged me, as I have come to realise that as a leader I should carry everyone along despite their shortcomings,” Maku added.
He also called on the Eggon people to use the carnival to reevaluate themselves with the view to fashioning out ways of placing the Eggon Nation on the path of prosperity.
Maku cautioned his supporters against retaliating any attack on him by his opponents, urged them to engage in issues based campaign and reject any form of inducement in order to forestall rigging.
The APGA standard bearer promised to be accessible, accountable and run an administration that would give priority to employment, poverty reduction among others if elected governor come 2019.
