"Telling of lies is compulsory in politics,If you cannot lie, get out ofpolitics" - Gov Muazu of Niger State

In his characteristic bluntness, Niger State
Governor Muazu Babangida Aliyu, has
declared that there is no morality in politics.
He stressed that politics is all about lying and
if one cannot lie, then he or she has no place
in the game.
The governor went on: “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 i
not about sadaka (giving alms), politics
reminds people of what you have done. Go
out and remind the people of what we have

a sellable candidate.

be left unturned to ensure that all the PDP’s
candidates from the House of Assembly to
the Presidency become victorious in the
According to him, “we should go from house
to house, neighbour to neighbour, room to
room to ensure we win the election. We have
to do it that way for us to get somewhere.”
Aliyu told PDP supporters not to allow
themselves to be intimidated by anybody
especially the opposition party, insisting that
“once you enter a project with fear you are
bound to fail.
“All members of the gubernatorial campaign
committee, those of the House of Assembly,
and the senatorial campaign organisations
and those of the House of Assembly must
therefore come together to ensure that the
PDP and its flag bearers win all the elections
slated for next month without competing
with each other,” he further stressed.
The governor also directed all political
appointees who could not make the
membership of the campaign committees to
consider themselves as mobilisers for the PDP
He warned that they would be held
accountable in the event of failure in any
polling unit and that any of the appointees
who did not want to work for the party
should resign his or her position.
He challenged all members of the campaign
committees as well as the political appointees
to ensure the party supporters at the
grassroots were carried along in their
He added: “Our party must reinvigorate, we
must consult officers of the PDP at all levels,
we should work assiduously to ensure total
On the governorship candidate of the party,
Umar Mohammed Nasko, Aliyu described him
as the best to happen to the state especially
because he was a youth, asking the
electorate to queue behind him.
Speaking on behalf of the committee, its
Director General, Alhaji Aminu Yussuf, who is
also the state’s secretary of the party,
assured the PDP of total victory in the
February election.
Yussuf said the party would change its tactics
and strategy in areas where traditionally it
had had problems in previous elections.
