Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, deputy governorship candidate in Niger State, Alhaji Liman Kantigi, has vowed to use his resources to wage war against any group within the PDP out to distract the administration of Governor Abubakar Sani Bello of the All Progressives Congress, APC, from working for the good of the state.
Kantigi, in a press statement made available to National Mirror at the weekend in Minna, said some politicians in Niger State are very good at distracting leaders by being enemies of the state instead of joining hands after elections to make the state great.
He said: “I am prepared to use my resources, my supporters to wage war against any group trying to block him from doing his work as it is in the past. Our responsibility is to put party issues aside and join hands in ensuring the government succeeds.
“God gives and take power and he has given Governor Bello, so we are mandated to follow him irrespective of our parties, this is not to seek favour from him or any appointment from him, but I discovered that the governor is young and from his utterances, he has good idea and we should all give him support and free hand to perform.”
Though, a member of the PDP, the deputy governorship candidate said, he would not tolerate or be part of those planning to distract a person God has given power to lead the state or a government that has barely started working.
