Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State has dissociated himself from a National Daily Publication captioned: “How Governor Sule, plotted the exit of Abdullahi Adamu, Al Makura in Nasarawa state politics”.

The Governor has described it as, “the handwork of mischief makers whose stock in trade is sawing seeds of disunity”.

Addressing a press conference in Lafia Tuesday, the Senior Special Adviser to the Governor on Public Affairs, Mr Peter Ahemba maintained that, “ordinary, his Excellency would have waved such a mischievous publication with a wave of the hand, but only for the potency it contained that would cause unnecessary friction between the Governor and the two political leaders in the state hence, it  must be put in their rightful perspectives”.

He explained that, Governor Sule had at no time hidden his total respect to the duo of Al Makura and Adamu.

He also recalled that, “when Senator Al Makura re-contested for the Senate seat, Governor Sule, stood firmly and consistent in his support, while the Governor also threw same strength of support to Adamu, when he contested as the National Chairmanship of the APC”.

Mr. Ahemba, further explained that, “even though Senator Al Makura did not win the second term bid, he (Al Makura) being a democrat accepted the outcome of the election and demonstrated uncommon spirit of statesmanship by voluntarily withdrawing the matter from the Election Petition Tribunal”.

He said, “Of recent, when APC Governors in country were asked to submit three names each to the President for Ministerial appointment, Senator Al Makura’s name featured consistently on the list submitted by Governor Sule to the President for Nasarawa State”.

Adding that, “The Governor has no hands in Adamu’s exit as the APC, National Chairman”.

He described as mischievous the insinuations accusing the Governor of being the bane behind his voluntary resignation.

The SSA said, “When there were agitations in some quarters for ousting the APC National Chairman sometimes before his resignation, Governor Sule strongly stood against such a move not minding the consequences of his decision to his second term bid”.

Mr. Ahemba has however, re-assured the two political Giants in the state of Governor Sule’s unshaken loyalty.

Adding that, “He holds them in great esteemed and urged them to be wary of mischief makers, who have tried all they could to knock their heads together on several occasions, but have persistently failed in their bid”.
