Etsu Nupe to Politicians : Remove My Portraits from Your Campaign Bill Boards
The Etsu Nupe and Chairman of Niger state council of traditional rulers, Alhaji Yahaya Abubakar, has directed politicians who mounted campaign bill boards with his portraits placed side by side theirs to remove them immediately. The Etsu Nupe stated this over the weekend during the traditional sallah homage paid to His Royal Highness by all the traditional title holders of Bida Emirate Council at his Wadata palace, Bida.
Alhaji Abubakar disclosed also that he would soon establish a rehabilitation centre in Bida to take care of the physically challenged in the society and solicited for the support of his subjects for take off of the centre.
He further pleaded with public spirited individuals in and outside his emirate to donate to the Bida Education foundation fund which he said was to complement government efforts in the funding of education.
According to him ” government alone cannot fund education, they need our support”.
He urged his subjects to enrol their children in schools because ” education is the only legacy a parent can leave for the up coming generations”
Alhaji Abubakar also advised Nigerians to support the anti corruption campaign of the federal government because corruption in all spheres of the society had eaten very deep into the body fabrics of the society
