Gov. Umaru Al-Makura of Nasarawa State has warned politicians in the state to desist from acts capable of breaching the peace in the state or face the wrath of the law.
Al-Makura gave the warning on Monday in Lafia during an interactive session with the All Progressives Congress (APC) stakeholders, including political appointees and legislators across the state.
He noted that the state belonged to all citizens and that it behoves on all to work towards its growth and development rather than engage in acts capable of causing disharmony.
“No politician should take this administration for granted or mistake our diplomatic posture for weakness as government is ready to deal with mischief makers in whatever form they exhibit their tendencies,” he said.
He charged politicians to play by the rule and avoid hate speeches and campaign of acrimony, thereby, overheating the polity
The governor attributed the developmental strides recorded by his administration, in the past six years, to the collective resolve and support of all stakeholders.
He said the task of building Nasarawa State that the people dreamt of was still in progress and required the commitment of all in the interest of the coming generation.
Al-Makura restated his commitment to the service of the people.
“I consider it as a divine obligation and shall not relent in the remaining years of my service to the state,” he said.
He urged all citizens to pray fervently for the speedy recovery of President Muhammadu Buhari currently undergoing treatment in the UK.
The governor also charged the people to continually support the Buhari administration in order to return the country to its path of glory.
