Governor Sule promises inclusion of ethnic Eggon in Nasarawa


Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State commended the Eggon people of the state for their peaceful disposition and promised to include them in the political development agenda.

The Governor gave the eulogy while delivering his speech at the Akwanga Branch Eggon Youth Movement fundraiser in Akwanga Local Government Area.

Mr Sule, represented by Bala John, his assistant, described the Eggon people as hardworking and industrious.

“Eggon from Akwanga has contributed a lot to the development of the region and has always seen himself as one with the other ethnic nationalities in the locality.

“I urge you to continue in this spirit and avoid sentimental politics, especially now that the 2023 general election is approaching,” he said.

Mr Sule said his principle of inclusiveness was behind the appointments given to people of Eggon descent.

“The All Progressives Congress (APC) has currently given two Eggon tickets to the House of Assembly in Lafia, one to Kokona, two to Nasarawa-Eggon, and one Senate ticket to the Nasarawa North Senatorial Area.

“The people of Eggon are currently serving as the vice chairpersons of Keffi, Lafia and Kokona local government areas, in addition to the chairperson of Nasarawa-Eggon local government area, among others.”

He promised to provide more infrastructure and better welfare for the people during the remaining period of his first term.

The governor urged the people of the state to vote again for him and all APC candidates for all offices in the 2023 general election.

Earlier, Adgizi Anzaku, the president of the association in Akwanga, said that in addition to promoting peace and unity among the Eggon and other ethnic groups in the region, “the association is also in the humanitarian service and the empowerment of vulnerable people”.
