Gubernatorial Candidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) in Nasarawa State Mr. Labaran Maku has insisted that it is the turn of the Nasarawa North Senatorial District to produce the next governor of the state. Mr. Maku stated this when his campaign train visited the Palace of Chun-Mada, the Paramount Ruler of Mada Nation in Akwanga Local Government Area of the state. He observed that since the creation of the state nineteen years ago, nobody from the northern part of the state had ever governed Nasarawa. He recalled that at the advent of democracy in 1999, Abdullahi Adamu who is from Eastern Zone of the state was elected from 1999 to 2007, adding that from 2007 till date, power remained in the Southern Senatorial Zone of the state. He said in the interest of justice, fairness and equity, power suppose to rotate to the northern zone since the present governor was completing the second tenure of the southern senatorial zone. “Nasarawa is a unique state where all the tribes and religions are found, hence the need for zoning in order to reduce tension and suspicion among the people of the state. ”Power sharing is seriously needed in Nasarawa state”, he said, adding that the Western and Southern Senatorial Zones had already spent eight years each in power. Mr. Maku promised that under APGA, he would present a new agenda for peace, unity and justice where people from all parts of the state would live in harmony. Responding, Chun-Mada, Mr. Samson Gamu Yare agreed with Mr. Maku that there was a clear demonstration of inequality in the distribution of power and resources in the state. He said even though the APGA candidate was fighting a just cause, he should go about his campaign peacefully without any rancor. He therefore urged members of the public who had not yet collected their permanent voters cards (PVCs) to use the extension period and collect it. Zakari Edego
