Nasarawa APC guber candidate mulls end to thuggery


The gubernatorial candidate of All Progressive Congress (APC), Alhaji Abdulahi Sule, has assured that if elected governor he would bring an end to political thuggery and banditry through economic empowerment of youths and women.

Sule, who made the promise at a campaign rally in Agidi Development Area in Nasarawa Eggon, decried the high rate of political thuggery in the state, stressing, “I will create jobs that will engage the youths so that they would no longer be idle.”

Lamenting the danger and waste associated with thuggery amongst youths, Sule, who was until last year the Managing Director of Dangote Sugar Industry, stated: “I see them as my own children, who are just roaming about and available for politicians to use and dump.”

While commending the strides made by Governor Tanko Al Makura in the area of education and sports, the APC standard bearer assured that he plans to provide credit facilities for women to engage them in productive economic ventures. He, however, warned politicians to desist from taking campaign to churches and mosque, noting that religious houses should be accorded due respect, as sacred places of worship.
