, says that one has to tell lies
to survive in the political scene of today, adding that there is no
morality in politics. He says if anyone wants to pursue morality, they
should go and become Imams or Pastors. The Governor stated this while
inaugurating the PDP guber campaign committee in Minna the state capital
yesterday January 5th.

“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.” he said
