A former gubernatorial aspirant under the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) in Niger State, Engineer Inuwa Zakari has charged politicians in the country to eschew caution in their utterances especially at this crucial period of elections in order not to set the country ablaze out of their desperation to win election.
Zakari who is presently a member of the National Screening Appeal Committee set up by the PDP, made the call in an interview in Minna yesterday noting that if truly those aspiring for various political offices are genuinely out to serve, they should approach the elections with utmost maturity and also see Nigeria beyond the 2015 general elections.
“What we, especially the politicians should know and also understand is that power belongs to God and can therefore be bestowed only whom He chooses and not out of desperation by any individual or group of people,” he observed.
He called on all Nigerians especially politicians to be inspired by the behaviors of the country’s past heroes who struggled for independence and democracy and also nurtured it to fruition, adding that rather than take steps that can lead to the disintegration of the country, they should work towards its survival and growth.
“What we should always think about is that our past leaders who struggled for the independence and democracy of the country have gone but left Nigeria in peace and therefore, politicians and indeed Nigerians alike should work for the peace of the country having at the back of our mind that when we are also gone, Nigeria will also remain and we should also contribute to our quota to its development”.
