Mr Labaran Maku, All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), governorship candidate in Nasarawa State, has advised voters to assess candidates seeking elective offices, on their personal merit.
Maku, who spoke with newsmen after meeting with Christian leaders in Karu Local Government, also advised religious leaders against encouraging voters to vote along religious lines.
“What should matter to voters is the credibility of the candidate and his or capacity to deliver. We must focus on the integrity of the person seeking the office so as to get leaders of proven integrity in 2019.
“Personally, I only require prayers from those supporting me and the Church. I don’t need endorsement from the Church because it is for everybody,” he said.
