Nasarawa State Governor, Tanko Al-Makura, has denied reports that he has abandoned the state.
Speaking through his media aide, Ahmed Tukur, the governor stated that he was in the state performing his constitutional duties.
The statement said the allegation was not only malicious but a figment of the imagination of a bitter opposition, who are out to create confusion using devilish assumptions to achieve selfish goals.
The statement reads in part, “The publication needed clarification but for reasons best known to the writer who neither contacted the Deputy Governor, Silas Agara, nor did he get across to any government official for clarification as claimed.
“For the avoidance of doubt, Governor Al-Makura is not missing but has been conducting the affairs of the state as enshrined by the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. There is also no iota of truth in the said publication that the governor travelled without officially handing over to his deputy because of a disagreement between the duo.
“The governor and his deputy are having a very cordial working relationship that the people of the state can attest to, as well as Senator Abdullahi Adamu and other stakeholders who are happy with the developmental strides of the governor.
“The allegation by master minders of the report of an imaginary face-off between the governor, his deputy and Senator Adamu only demonstrates their envy of the cordiality and good working relationship between the political leaders in the state and are working very hard to create disaffection and divert attention from their efforts to bring the much needed dividends of democracy.”
