Emir urges politicians to accept election results in good faith

The Emir of Wamba in Nasarawa State, Alhaji Musa Nagogo, on Thursday urged politicians to accept the outcome of the March 28 and April 11 elections in good faith.

Nagogo made the call during an interview with newsmen at Wamba Local Government Area, Nasarawa State.

“Leadership as an act of God; God gives power to whoever he wishes. The electorate should vote for God-fearing leaders in the interest of peace and development.

“As a traditional ruler, my role is to preach peace, unity and to advise my subjects and other Nigerians to live in peace and tolerate one another irrespective of ethnic, religious and political affiliation.

“No nation or society can develop in an atmosphere of rancour and confusion. The security challenges facing some parts of the country have affected the socio-economic development of the country”, he said.

According to him, as the general elections draw near, the people of Nasarawa State and indeed every Nigerian should shun violence and resist to be used by selfish individuals to make trouble.

Nagogo called on populace to pray for successful and peaceful elections.

He urged youths to always respect constituted authorities, be law abiding and engage in meaningful ventures in order to contribute their quota to national development.
