The Governor of Niger State, Babangida Aliyu has said that only liars can survive in the game of politics.

Aliyu stated this on Monday, January 5, during the inauguration of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) gubernatorial campaign committee in Minna.

The governor also reportedly added that there is no morality in politics.

 “If you cannot lie, get out of politics. Anything you are involved in has its own rule. You are in politics to win, win first and let other things follow. Don’t be the one crying louder; lest you will be the one ‎they will take to court,” Aliyu said.

 “If you are talking of honesty or morals, go and become an Imam or pastor. Politics cannot be the way it used to be. The challenges are more now, the variables have changed, the issues that we are going to face in 2015 are different from the ones we faced in 1999 and we must bear this in mind. Our society is not as grateful as it used to be, the values and morals have gone down. If you want to win, use the modern morality,”  he added.

He also urged members of the PDP to ensure that they do whatever is necessary to make sure that the party’s candidates win the elections.

 “We should go from house to house, neighbour to neighbour, room to room to ensure we win the election. We have to do it that way for us to get somewhere. All members of the gubernatorial campaign committee, those of the House of Assembly, and the senatorial campaign organisations and those of the House of Assembly must therefore come together to ensure that the PDP and its flag bearers win all the elections slated for next month without competing with each other,” Aliyu said.

 “Our party must reinvigorate, we must consult officers of the PDP at all levels, we should work assiduously to ensure total victory,” he added.
