|Good People Avoiding Nigerian Politics Because Of Political Violence – Masari by JPhilip: 8:31pm On Nov 19, 2021|
Governor Aminu Masari of Katsina State said in Gombe on Friday that political violence would not attract the right calibre of people into leadership positions but would scare them away.
Masari made the observation when he led Jigawa’s Governor Badaru Abubakar to commiserate with Governor Inuwa Yahaya of Gombe State over the recent political clash in the state.
He said they were in Gombe under the auspices of the Progressives Governors’ Forum chaired by Governor Abubakar Bagudu of Kebbi State.
Governor Bagudu, he explained, was engaged in Abuja and could not join in the visit.He said that politics was about leadership and service to the people and must be played without violence to attract the right leaders.
He stressed that good people would always shun violence.
The governor said also that politicians had the responsibility of promoting democracy and “we cannot promote democracy through violence; if we do, it will scare the good people away.’’
Masari said also that “leaders have a responsibility to protect lives and property. As leaders, we should not, under any circumstances, be seen to be promoting or supporting violence.
“Violence will ultimately lead to death, cause injuries, loss of property and create charged atmosphere among the populace.’’
He stated that disagreements in politics should not resort to violence, noting that disagreements in politics were “natural and normal’’ just as they happen in family settings.
“We believe we are peacemakers and politics can be played without violence. Violence does not help anybody and it does not promote peace,’’ he stressed.
Masari urged politicians to conduct politics in a harmonious and understanding manner in the interest of peace and development.
