A governorship aspirant in Gombe State under the All Progressive Grand Alliance party, APGA, Alhaji Ahmed Modibo Wali, has called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to closely monitor the activities of aspirants into different positions in the forthcoming elections.
Speaking with journalists in Gombe, Alhaji Modibo said this would check the financial excesses of politicians, who often deceive and mislead electorates with money.
He said the electorates should in turn be mindful of politicians they elect to represent them at all levels, while urging them not to consider money, but judge from the tangible projects or service provided to the people in the past.
Benefit of the country
Alhaji Modibo condemned the spate of defections going on in the political landscape in recent times, describing it as a betrayal of the electorates.
He advised politicians to understand their differences and pursue their ambitions with the interest and benefit of the country, while describing the All Progressive Grand Alliance party as a national party with the interest of Nigeria.
He added that the APGA was not mainly an Igbo party but has elected people into positions from different parts of the country including the North, particularly, Taraba, Niger, Nassarawa States and Abuja.
