2019: Al-Makura Did Not Endorse Me, Agara




The deputy governor of Nasarawa state, Silas Agara, has denied the reports making rounds that he has been endorsed by Governor Umaru Tanko Al Makura for the 2019 gubernatorial election in the state.

Agara said this in a statement issued by his media aide, Godspower Ede in lafia.

He dismissed the reported endorsement as ‘speculative journalism,’ Premium Times reports.
“The attention of the deputy governor has been drawn to a publication in a newspaper captioned: ‘2019: Al Makura gives nod to deputy.’
“He 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.
“For the avoidance of doubt, Al Makura has never given such nod or endorsement to his deputy 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 Progressives Congress (APC) members in the state appreciates the aspirations of some members to succeed him and treats them equally without giving any slightest hint of having a favourite.
“Knowing the antecedents of Al Makura as a champion of the promotion of rule of law and due process, the deputy governor is at a loss over the intentions of the writer.”
Meanwhile, previously  Governor Umaru Tanko Al-Makura of Nasarawa state had declared that the re-election bid of President Muhammadu Buhari come 2019 was already a done deal.
Governor Al-Makura made the declaration while receiving members of the Democratic Youth Assembly, who paid him a courtesy visit at the Government House, Lafia.
