Nasarawa governor says he does not care about second term in office
The Executive Governor of Nasarawa State, Abdullahi Sule has stated that he remains unbothered about being re-elected in 2023.
This statement was made by the Governor while chatting with journalists in Lafia, the state capital of Nasarawa.
Abdullahi said he was grateful to God for giving him a four-year mandate; a period he deems long enough for him to contribute his quota to the development of the state.
Reacting to a question on the speculation around the state that he might be rejected by the people at the poll in 2023, the Governor said he was ready to return to the US or Saudi Arabia to enjoy his life after his four-year mandate.
According to him, “one thing I have never been threatened about in life is my second term as governor. Let me tell you, in 1998, while working in the US, I felt I was bored. I took my early retirement package from an oil company, I went and set up our small company and we were running our business.
“I thought that was it. I never knew I was going to return to Nigeria as a whole, not to talk of coming to Nigeria to set up a company and become MD African Petroleum and later become GMD in Dangote company.
“That was even when I started enjoying life; not today.
“So I went through all these as extra to me in life; things I never thought would happen, but because God has blessed me that it will happen and it actually happened.
“Then out of the blues, from nowhere, I’m now a governor, and somebody is saying one term, and then I will cry, sleep and die? To hell with him!
“One term, yes, it’s fine. That is how I look at it. One term is good enough.
