A Benue governorship aspirant, Terhemen Tarzoor, addressing members of the Benue community in Jos, Plateau State, during an interactive session at the weekend, told them not to be discouraged by the impression that politics is a dirty game but to get actively involved in it and contribute in cleaning it up.
“I hear people say that politics is a dirty game, but I say to you: if politics is dirty, get into it and be part of the process of cleaning it,” Tarzoor, a former speaker of the Benue State House of Assembly, said during the interactive session in the Banquet Hall of Hill Station Hotel, Jos.
The interactive session with the Benue community in Jos brought memories back for Tarzoor who recalled that he was a Jos boy between 1993 and 1995 when he worked as a bus conductor plying some of Jos city’s residential districts.
He told the Benue community whom he described as being enterprising people seeking honest living away from their birthplaces that he was seeking to be governor not just for Benue State but also for the people of Benue outside Benue.
“You will feel my impact as Benue people wherever you may be. But you must get interested in politics in Benue State. We must not sit aloof and complain that politics is dirty,” he said.
