Tor Sankera :persons above 65 years should forget elective positions

Abu King Shuluwa

Abu King Shuluwa, the Tor Sankera, has advocated that persons above 65 years of age should not seek elective positions such as president, governors and senators, among others.

The traditional ruler, who pointed out that instead, such persons ought to serve as advisers, noted that youths should  be given a chance to serve their fatherland.

He disclosed this during an interactive session with journalist in Makurdi on Monday.

His counterpart, Sule Abenga, Ter Makurdi, who earlier spoke with newsmen in his palace in Makurdi, advised youths to vote out self-seeking politicians.

Abenga lamented that the tension in the polity was caused by selfish and self-seeking politicians.

He advised Nigerians to vote wisely and remove selfish politicians and elect leaders who will improve the lot of society.

His words: “Government is expected to touch the lives of the people and not the people singing their praises for doing nothing.”

Also, Abu King Shuluwa, Tor Sankera, stated that many top politicians would lose elections in 2019, adding that over time, the politicians have proved to be deceitful.

He argued further that governance at the local government level was more difficult and since the older generations were in tune with activities at the local level, they should serve as councillors.

Shuluwa said: ”We have vibrant youths in this country with good ideas who ought to be given a chance to aspire for political positions.”
