A CHIEFTAIN of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Nasarawa state, Alhaji Iyal Hassan has asserted that those criticizing Governor Umaru Tanko Al-Makura were ignorant of governance and only sentimental about the truth and in search for cheap popularity to revive their political base.
He insisted that those accusing the governor of not doing enough for the state were only economical with the truth and lacks knowleged of happenings in the state.
Iya, who was apparently reacting to the incessant media attacks on the governor by a former member of the House of Representatives in the state, Ahmed Aliyu at a news conference in Keffi-Nasarawa state, said the duo won election twice to represent Keffi – Kokona – Karu on the platform of the PDP from 2011-2013 with the support of Senator Abdullahi Adamu, a chieftain of APC.
He said wadada later lost election in 2011 because of the coming of Al-Makura in the defunct Congress for Progressives Change, CPC, urging the former lawmaker to retract his steps as politicking was meant to bring sanity and not rancor.
According to him governor Al- makura has done so well for the people of the state and Keffi in particular in terms of road construction, hospitals and the building of the best special school in the country.
“The people of keffi are very enlightened, because whenever you come across a keffi is realist, so we are appreciative of the efforts of Almakura to our community, not because I am his party’s man but I am saying this because there are realities on ground to feel touch and see”.
Iyal recalled that when Almakura came to power in 2011 he inherited a collapsed system, stressing that the education system had fallen apart and that the public health system was virtually unfunctional and total lack of infrastructures throughout the state.
He said APC under governor Umaru Tanko Al – Makura has developed Nasarawa beyond recognition that only the blind man will claim ignorant of the achievement in the state.
