The Taraba State Governor Dickson Ishaku says no human blood is worth shedding for power.
This is as he called on religious leaders, caregivers and parents to warn their children and wards against making themselves available as thugs in the hands of overzealous politicians.
Ishaku, who gave the warning on Tuesday in the state, added that “no human blood is worth shedding for the purpose of acquiring political power.”
Calling on politicians, especially those seeking elective positions in the forthcoming general elections, to play the game according to the laid down rules, he said his administration would collaborate with the security operatives to track down any person or group who would want to soil the present peace in the state.
He advised the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to make the forthcoming election credible and transparent.
He also called on religious leaders to take their time to pray for a hitch-free general polls in the state and the country at large.
