2019: Don’t give youths weapons, drugs, Emir urges politicians

The Sarkin Katsina Gusau, Dr Ibrahim Bello, on Sunday, urged politicians not to arm youths with dangerous weapons and drugs during campaigns ahead of the 2019 general elections.

Bello made the call when Senator Said Dansadau, the governorship candidate of the National Rescue Movement, paid a courtesy visit to his palace in Gusau.

According to him, all that people want is development, saying that the youths should not be encouraged to handle weapons for destructive purposes.

He said that politics should not be a do-or-die affair and urged the politicians to imbibe the spirit of sportsmanship and still shake hands either they win or lose the election.

“I urge you to play politics like sports, if you win, fine, and if you don’t win, embrace the other person and shake hands with him.

“There is need for politicians to base their campaigns on issues and not on things that will aggravate crisis.

“Tell the electorate what you can offer and allow them to decide, because all the people want is development, ” the emir said.

He then prayed for the peace and progress of the country and called for peace ahead of the 2019 elections.

Earlier, Senator Dansadau, the governorship candidate of the NRM said he came to see the Emir to inform him of his intention to contest for the governorship seat of Zamfara State and to seek his blessings.
