Madaki who made the declaration, hinged his reasons on preparedness to be governor, strength of character among others.
“My decision is hinged of first, his preparedness to be governor ofNasarawa State. Of all the candidates he is the one who has so far demonstrated that he has a plan and how to execute it. He has told us what he will do with Education, Youth empowerment, Tourism, economy, health, peace and security etc.
“Secondly his untainted record in public service leaves me with no doubt that this is not one of those people who will come and feast on our commonwealth. From commissioner to deputy governor and minister, he has demonstrated character and integrity. He is one of the very few people who have been in public service for that long and has a clean slate.
“Thirdly, he has the requisite experience haven served in the various positions he has served which I listed above cum his sojourn in unionist, the private sector as well as in a development agency. Today he is the only vocal opposition who speaks against the ills of government in out dear state.
“Other reasons include his accessibility and simplicity to all and sundry, his reach and diversity across the state and amongst all strata of the society among others. For these reasons as an individual I make bold to say I will be supporting and working for Labaran Maku in the coming elections,” the endorsement statement reads.
Similarly, former president of the group, Mr. Titus Haruna Ashiki and his successor, Senator Dunga had earlier respectively endorsed APGA’s Maku to succeed outgoing Governor Umaru Tanko Al-Makura of the APC in 2019.
