Mr Labaran Maku, former information minister who failed to clinch the governorship ticket on the platform of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in 2015 has kicked-off the battle again in Nasarawa state.
Maku commenced his campaign in Lafia on Wednesday with a promise to transform the lives of the residents and make security his priority, if elected.
“I intend to address insecurity within my first 100 days in office, after which I will focus on development of all the sectors.
“The state, under me, will be a centre where people from other states will come and learn transparency in leaders.
“We will also set example for others to follow in genuine leadership in terms of due process, employment generation, carrier progression and infrastructural development in rural areas and towns,” the veteran journalist said.
Mr Victor Oye, National Chairman of the party, in his speech, said that a vote for APGA was a vote for liberation from poverty, hunger and insecurity.
He urged the people to elect Maku as their next governor because he was eminently qualified for the position.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), reports that the party’s flags were presented to all candidates of the party in the state at the event. (NAN)
