NNPP Governorship Candidate of Nasarawa State, Alhaji Abdullahi Maidoya stated this during a visit to the Paramount traditional ruler, the Abaga Toni in Kokona Local Government Area of the state.

Alhaji Maidoya explained that the Presidential Candidate, Alhaji Rabiu Kwankwaso had articulated a Community Development Committee in the party’s programme with a view to engaging the traditional institutions across the country in active participation in governance.

He said that traditional rulers would provide rich inputs for sustainable development of the country in the areas of budgetary provisions, security issues and rural infrastructure.

Alhaji Maidoya promised to provide good governance if he is elected in the 2023 elections.

The Abaga Toni, Mr Lawrence Ayih stressed the need for politicians to play the game by the rules and avoid campaigns of blackmail and tendencies capable of causing violence.

The traditional ruler used the medium to call on leaders at all levels to be selfless and focus on issues that would foster growth and development of the society.
