Maku Support Group (MSG), a pro Labaran Maku group has decried the foot dragging and apparent reluctance of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to review the results of the skewed Nasarawa State primary elections despite appeals by their principal and other true lovers of democracy in the state.
MSG stated this in a release signed by its coordinator, Comrade Bako Ajen, made available to Peoples Daily yesterday.
According to the group, the implication of their foot dragging may cost PDP Nasarawa State in the general elections as it may lose one of its leading lights in the state in the person of the former Minister of Information.
Part of the statement reads: “We remain resolute and steadfast in our campaign for a Labaran Maku candidature, and if we have to switch platforms to actualise this aspiration, then we are left without a choice than to do the needful.
“We are calling on Labaran Maku to strongly consider an alternative party if the rigging persists as he cannot afford to squander the huge support and goodwill he enjoys on the altar of being a good/faithful party man.
“Labaran Maku has the popularity and acceptance to win the general elections regardless of the party. All he needs is a banner to fly under. Nasarawa State needs Labaran Maku as he remains the best bet for the job of rescuing it from its downward spiral.
“Labaran Maku is an idea whose time has come and there is no stopping it. This idea is premised upon the compelling need to transform the battered fortunes of the good people of the state who good governance has continually eluded and that of the state.”
