Former governor Nyame advises politicians to seek power from God


A former Governor of Taraba, Rev Jolly Nyame on Tuesday, advised politicians to seek political power through God so as to enhance good governance.

Nyame told journalists in Jalingo that no man had the powers to make one a leader.

“I want to advice politicians to seek power from God and not any man.

“There is no man that can make anybody a leader if it is not the will of God,” he said.

Nyame recalled how he contested and lost the Jalingo Chairmanship election in 1992, only to be made a governor the same year.

“I wanted to be Jalingo’s Local Government Chairman in 1992 and God said no. And from a preacher without money, I became the governor in the same year.

“If God does not approve of anybody’s quest to become a leader, no amount of money, no battalion of army can make it happen,” he added.

Nyame also appealed to politicians to approach the campaign for the 2015 general election with caution so that it would not aggravate the already existing security challenges in the country.
