The Governor of Niger State, Dr Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu, has said that people should stop distracting President Goodluck Jonathan with talk about 2015 general election which is three years away.
Aliyu who spoke, yesterday, in Minna said that politicians especially those angling for elective positions should not “worry about 2015 because 2015 belongs to God”.
He said that “nobody knows who will see tomorrow, tomorrow is in the hands of God” and therefore said that the talk about 2015 should not be used to disturb the President’s concentration on the task at hand.The Governor said that 2014 is the most ideal year for politicians to commence talks about those that would take over from the present crop of elected public officials
“Allow us to work, we can start the noise in 2014. As for me, I cannot run for Governor again people should allow me to work for the people who elected me so that they will know I got my PHD from the classroom not honorary”.
Aliyu however said that those who thought they could not live up to responsibilities given to them should decline and said that if any leader deceived the people such a leader could not deceive God.
He said that the people should not hide under deprivations and poverty to destroy public property as witnessed during the last subsidy protest in the state and said that people must begin to see public property as their own.
