In his characteristic bluntness, Niger State Governor, Muazu Babangida Aliyu, while inaugurating the PDP gubernatorial campaign committee yesterday, said: ”If you cannot lie, get out of politics. Anything you are involved in has its own rule. You are in politics to
win, win first and let other things follow. Don’t be the one crying louder; lest you will be the one they will take to court. If you are talking of honesty or morals, go and become an Imam or pastor. Politics cannot be the way it used to be.
The challenges are more now, the variables have changed, the issues that we are going to face in 2015 are different from the ones we faced in 1999 and we must bear this in mind. Our society is not as grateful as it used to be, the values and morals have gone down. If you want to win, use the modern morality….
We have worked for the people. Politics is not about sadaka (giving alms), politics reminds people of what you have done. Go out and remind the people of what we have done.”….. Ppl are now finding it hard to believe ds statement too cuz he might be lying…..
