Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State has said some members of his cabinet conspired against his re-election.
Sule made the revelation during a valedictory session held with the outgone members of the state executive council in government house, Lafia on Thursday before he announced the sack of his cabinet.
According to him, he would have sacked the political appointees who worked against him shortly after the election but he deliberately allowed them to serve under him until the end of the tenure.
“The last time we had this kind of meeting was just before the elections, when we invited you to ask for your support, to ask you to do everything you could to help us achieve success at the elections.
“I have seen, I have heard a lot of you that have worked like there is no tomorrow in order for us to be successful at the election.
“I have also seen and also heard of some who worked like there is no tomorrow for us to lose the election. I want to thank those of you particularly who have worked for the success of my re-election bid and did not listen to any side comments but your loyalty to God Almighty and your loyalty by the oath you have taken to be able to deliver us.
“I always keep everything aside so that we can move forward once God made me successful, that was the reason I didn’t listen to advice to sack those that worked against us immediately after the election.
“For some of you, if I have the opportunity to work with you again, I will work with you. Because you have proved to me that you are loyal, truthful, dedicated.”
