FCT Minister of State, Dr Ramatu Tijjani Aliyu, has warned politicians and political parties to mind their utterances ahead of the Kogi governorship election.
The minister made this known when receiving members of the Kogi State House of Assembly.
She also stated that Kogi state will no longer be a poor state because of the tourism potentials in the state.
Aliyu said: “The era of divide and rule in Kogi State is over because we are now one big family. We should unite together and make Kogi a hub of industries and tourist attractions.
“The governor should go and sleep and trust us. For me, Kogi State in the near future will not be a poor state because of the tourism potentials God has given us.
“But we cannot do it alone, we have to partner relevant bodies and other arms of government. I will serve as your massager at the federal level to make our voice known to Mr. President.
“But more importantly, guard your utterances towards the forthcoming governorship election in Kogi State. Prove to Nigerians that Kogi governorship election is the most violent free, just as we witnessed during the primaries.
“There will be no snatching of ballot boxes to prove a point to the oppositions. I appeal to you to remain calm.”
