Sule, represented by Bala John, his Senior Special Assistant, said “Eggon people are known for peace, industrious, hardworking and patriots who believe in nation building.

“Eggon of Akwanga have contributed a lot to the development of the area and had always seen themselves as one with other ethnic nationalities in the locality.

“I urge you to continue in that spirit and shun politics of sentiments, especially now that the 2023 general elections are approaching.

“I gave appointments to people of Eggon extraction in Lafia, Nassarawa-Eggon and Kokona local government areas in line with my principle of inclusiveness.

“The All Progressives Congress (APC) has currently given tickets to two Eggon persons for House of Assembly in Lafia, one in Kokona, two in Nassarawa-Eggon and one senatorial ticket in Nasarawa North Senatorial Zone.

“Eggon people are currently serving as Deputy Chairmen of Keffi, Lafia, and Kokona local government areas in addition to local government area chairman of Nassarawa-Eggon among others”.

He promised to provide more infrastructures and better welfare for the people in the remaining period of his first tenure.

Sule urged people of the state to vote for him again and all the candidates of APC in all positions in the 2023 general elections.

Earlier, Mr Adgizi Anzaku, the chairman of the association in Akwanga, welcomed the dignitaries for gracing their occasion and urged them to support the association to complete the building of its secretariat.

Adgizi said that apart from promoting peace and unity among the Eggon and other ethnic groups in the area, “the association is also into humanitarian service and empowerment of the vulnerable”.

He explained that since inception in the last two years, the association had trained 74 vulnerable youths in different skills, ranging from tailoring, event planning, catering to fashion and design, among others.

“We appeal to spirited individuals to support us so that we can give them start-up parks to enable them to be self-reliant and employers of labour,” he said.
