Mr Labran Maku, former Minister of Information and supervising Minister of Defence, yesterday visited Anambra State to solicit support from APGA members in the state, and also confer with the BOT chairman of the party, Governor Willie Obiano.
Maku said the state governors should jointly tackle the insurgency ravaging the country
State instead of pointing accusing fingers at the president.
He said that President Goodluck Jonathan should not be held responsible for the insecurity in the country, rather the governors should be in charged to take responsible of their duty as chief executive of their various states.
“Governors are undependable, unaccountable to the presidency they are autonomous and closer to the people as such should know better than the presidency what goes wrong in their domain,’’ he said.
He urged those behind political violence in the country to desist from it as such was no longer fashionable, rather superior argument and ideas should be placed down.
Maku also condemned the recent political attack on Jonathan who was in Bauchi and Kastina to canvas for votes for re-election in February. He described the incidences as unruly and unfortunate.
“The president was not supposed to be attacked in any part of the country because he has demonstrated quality leadership which every Geo-Political Zone would attest to, therefore no right thinking person would have melted any form of attack on him.”
Speaking on his governorship bid, he said that he joined APGA to run for the gubernatorial election in his state, Nasarawa as he suffered politics of religion and ethnicity on the platform the ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
Maku said that he was in Anambra to garner more tactics from the APGA National Chairman, Chief Victor Umeh who is from the state as well as to identify with the party in the state.
