The Emir of Mubi, HRH Alh. Isah Abubakar has told the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Adamawa to stop deceiving the electorate if they want the party to excel in Nigeria.
The monarch stated this when he played host to the State APC’s acting chairman Ibrahim Bilal and hundreds of the party members at his palace in Mubi Adamawa State.
Isah said that if the party will get people who have the fear of God holding leadership position in the country irrespective of religion, gender and status, then there won’t be much problem in the country.
“Stop deceiving the electorate if you want your party to succeed in Nigeria,” he told his guests. “The era of deceit is passed, you must keep to your words.”
“I am a Father to all of you here, if cannot tell you the truth, it means, am not a good father; Do what your electorate wants you to do, not you asking them to do what you want them to do, democracy is all about the electorates, he added.
He advised the party officials to stop imposing candidates on the electorate as it has bad effects on the people.
According to him the party will only stand the test of time if it is fair to all and sundry without any favour on tribe, place or religion.
Speaking, Ibrahim who is the leader of the delegation at the palace of the traditional ruler said he has come to pay homage being a son of the soil, to also seek for royal blessings and prayers that the party will succeed not only in Adamawa but in the country at large.
Bilal also told the Emir that they are going round to fraternise well with party officials in all the 21 LGAs, so that the party will be more united to face future challenges.
