Former minister of Information, Labaran Maku, has accused his former party, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, in Nasarawa State of conspiring to deny him the former’s governorship ticket.
Speaking on Saturday during his official public presentation as governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, at the Manyi Royal Suit​,​ in Lafia, the capital of Nasarawa State, Maku said “The struggle to ensure that I did not become candidate of APGA is emanating from Government House in Lafia. There is no place they have not gone, they have threatened APGA leadership in the state”.
Aside his defeat at the PDP primaries where he was crushingly defeated by not-much-known politician, Yusuf Agbi, Maku couldn’t also secure the ticket of the Labour Party, LP,which he coveted dearly.
Maku said his opting for the APGA was “to seek for justice​.​​​​​” Optimistic, Malu said the APGA would form the next government in the state in 2015. Maku said, if elected, he would turn Nasarawa into a model city and ensure every tribe and religion is accorded ​equal rights and opportunities.
Maku named Ibrahim Abu, an Alago man from Obi local government, as his running mate. Maku spoke glowingly of himself, saying the PDP and the APC “know more than anybody that when it comes to vision, to leadership, to capacity to express that vision and mobilize to get people moving, they know I have the capacity and that is why they are all jittery.
“We cannot afford another round of eight years in Lafia zone which means sixteen years wait, where is the justice in that?”
