Irked by the rising spate of destruction of billboard and campaign posters by members of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Nasarawa State Governor Umaru Tanko al-Makura, has cautioned party followers to play politics according to the rule, instead of causing bitterness.
He gave the charge at Tunga Community of Awe Local Government, in continuation of his statewide campaign at the weekend. The governor, who is seeking re-election, condemned the destruction of billboards and posters of opponents as a bad omen for politicking.
He said government would not fold its arms, while destruction reign in the state, describing politics of bitterness as old- fashioned in the state.
The governor promised the people of Tunga more benefits of democracy, if re-elected.
He emphasized that the APC, under him, would give impetus to health and road projects, which are areas that could do well with more government attention. He however said the existing primary healthcare centres would be upgraded to the status of comprehensive healthcare centres, in order to alleviate the suffering of commoners in the area ? by assuring they have access to better healthcare delivery.
He attributed the delay on the construction of Awe -Tunga road to the decision of the Federal Government to linked Awe-Tunga, as well construct a bridge across Tunga River linking Taraba state.
He assured the people of the community that his administration may not hesitate to take over the construction of the road depending on the commitment of the Federal Government.
