The Nasarawa State Governor, Governor Abdullahi Sule has described the All Progressives Congress (APC) as an exciting and attractive party that everyone now eagers to join due to its adherence to rules of law and tolerance to democracy.

The Governor made this known while speaking to journalists on Monday in Abuja after submitting his Expression of Interest and Nomination forms for his second term ambition as the Governor of the State.

He lauded Alhaji Abdullahi Adamu led National Working Committee of the party over good leadership being provided since assumption of office.


Governor Sule opined that the Leadership being shown by the new Chairman of the party, distinguished Senator Abdullahi Adamu, Turakin Keffi and all the new members of the working committee, as they have seen orderliness, capacity and the competence of the new members of the working committees.

“APC is such an exciting and attractive party that everyone now eagers to join due to its adherence to rules of law and tolerance to democracy.

“It’s always exciting, it’s actually a time for that, we truly appreciate the leadership being provided.

“To me it is a very exciting moment; more exciting for me personally because this form that I just submitted was purchased for me by common people in Nasarawa state coming out together raising 1000, 500, 2000.

“They were ready to raise the funds to buy these forms for me. So, that is what is exciting for me and the submission of these forms.

“I think the more people that are showing interest, the more it is proving to the world how exciting the party is. Whatever that is good would attract people. There are so many other parties that don’t even have anybody that is purchasing form apart from the two political parties we have.

“In fact, if you have one thousand people who are showing interest, it clearly shows that at the end of the day we will select the best. So, it is not everyone that bought a form that is going to be seen as anything serious. And I think the more the merrier that are showing interest to buy our form which is the most expensive . It means we are the party to beat, we are the party of excitement, we are the party of attraction that is the reason why you are seeing that” he noted.

Clearing the air on the rumor going around that he once said he would only serve for one term, Governor Abdullahi denied saying so and described it as a mere propaganda by opposition.

“I never said that I’m coming out for one term. And let me use the opportunity to clarify that. What happened was that the same opposition that are showing interest actually sent someone to ask what will be my reaction about people who are calling me one term and I said to them if God Almighty makes it one term.

I, Abdullahi Sule, would be more than happy to spend my one term and go back. So, what they did was to pick it exactly where I said to start my one term because they are afraid. They shouldn’t be afraid of Abdullahi Sule, they should come in and make it one term. It’s not too late. They should come and beat me at the polls and make it the one term” he stressed.
