Maku denies withdrawing from polls said Eggon Nation have Endorsed him.
The candidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliancn Saturday’s Governorship election Hon. Labaran Maku made this known in an interview on precision FM radio in Lafia this morning saying that a committee was set up to come up with an Eggon Consensus candidate for the governorship election and all Eggon Candidates were invited for interview by the committee and after due screening and consultation he was chosen as the One to represent Eggon land in the election and what that means is that all Eggons both home and abroad have made their decision to support Labaran Maku’s Candidacy and it wasn’t actually because he is an Eggon rather because they needed a leader who can represent them well.
Also the Campaign director of Labaran Maku campaign organization Dr. Nawani Aboki also released a disclaimer that his candidate had withdrawn from the race saying it only the figment of the imagination of the dark,evil and satanic forces hell bent in stopping the break of a new dawn in Nasarawa State. He therefore said it should be totally discountenanced. And he also confirmed that Labaran Maku has been endorsed yesterday by the whole Eggon Nation, He also said that the letter headed paper was not original because it doesn’t have his phone number, not dated nor signed hence fake.
Copy of the fake letter
Mr Nawani added that their original letter headed paper was stolen by armed robbers who used it to issue out fake withdrawal notice.
Speaking to our correspondent James on phone Dr. Nawani Aboki accused one of the aspirants of stealing their letter headed paper and used it to peddle lies but he said they’ve made a mistake by choosing him for a cheap blackmail.
Mr Aboki alleged that it was agreed that immediately after the outcome of the Committee set up by leaders of Eggon Nation consisting of Eggon traditional council, ECDA,Eggon youths and women wing, all other Eggon Candidates would step down for anybody endorsed by the whole Eggon nation and as Labaran Maku has been endorsed it is expected of candidate of PDP David Ombugadu to step down immediately just like some other Eggon Candidates has done.
When asked how they could be able to inform the electorates of the latest development, Nawani said that they have started since morning using all the available media outfits both the print and online as also asked Nasarawa Focus to join in spreading the news.
