Almakura did not endorsed me for 2019 Guber race – Silas Agara Debunks Media Report on 2019 Endorsement.
The news which was already in circulation has been debunked by the deputy,according to a statement released by his media Aide Mr Godspower Ede,it reads
“The attention of the Deputy Governor of Nasarawa State, Mr Silas Ali Agara, has been drawn to a publication in the Leadership Newspaper edition of 18th December, 2017 page 12 captioned “2019: Al-Makura Gives Nod to Deputy” which was also published here on nasafocus.com wherein the Nasarawa State correspondent of the paper reported a purported endorsement of the aspiration of Deputy Governor to contest 2019 Governorship election in Nasarawa state. Quoting “reliable sources” the paper concluded that the Governor has chosen his successor in the Deputy Governor.
“The Deputy Governor would have ignored the publication for what it is, speculative journalism, but for the damage the story is capable of doing to the excellent relationship existing between him and his hardworking principal, the Governor, since 2010.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the Governor has never given such “Nod”, endorsement or tap to his Deputy Governor to succeed him and any such insinuation should be dismissed as a figment of the writer’s imagination.
“The Governor as the father of the entire All Progressive Congress, APC, members in the state, including the Deputy Governor, appreciates the aspirations of some APC members to succeed him and treats them equally without giving any slightest hint of having a favourite. Knowing the antecedents of the Governor of a champion of the promotion of the rule of law and due process, the Deputy Governor is at his wits end as to the origin and intentions of the writer.
“It is true that the Deputy Governor, Mr Silas Ali Agara, is undertaking wide ranging consultations with APC stakeholders with the hope of aspiring to be the Party’s candidate in the 2019 Governorship election in Nasarawa state. In this connection he has not received the “Nod” knowing fully well that the Governor will not want to impose candidates on the people.”
