No Quarrel With My Deputy- Gov Al-Makura
By Godwin Ojoshimite
Nasarawa State Governor Umaru Tanko Al-Makura has debunked reports that he is having a rift with his deputy, Dameshi Luka Bauru.
The governor made the rebuttal at a meeting of the state interim management committee of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Lafia, the state capital, onWednesday.
He alleged that the report in some sections of the media, was the “handiwork of mischief makers, who do not mean well for the development of the state.”
He proclaimed that “those waiting to see friction between me and the deputy governor will have to wait till dooms day.”
Al-Makura attributed his administration’s success to the collaborative efforts of everybody in his government, including the deputy governor.
He prayed members of APC in the state to eschew personal interests and imbibe the spirit of sacrifice to enable the party to excel.
The governor appealed to members of the party to support the interim management committee and avoid unnecessary scheming capable of causing disunity in the party.
He described the recent claims that over 4,000 supporters of the APC in the state had defected to the Peoples’ Democratic Party as “ridiculous”, and urged the public to disregard it.
