Garissa County Governor Nathif Jama has urged opponents to stop using his name to gain political mileage ahead of August 8 polls.
Jama, speaking during the graduation ceremony at Madarasa Najah on Monday said opponents should concentrate on selling their agenda to the people and not criticizing his leadership.
He claimed that his opponents have turned his name into a campaign tool.
The governor rubbished the recent endorsement of leaders by a group of communities terming it as a waste of resources and inconsequential.
“Some funny groupings were called and the verdict was that I should not be re-elected. People are not elected by a few groups who call themselves whatever names but elected by the masses because of their performances and the good will that exists between them and the people,” Nathif said as quoted by KNA.
He defended his administration citing that his government has achieved a lot in the last 4 years.
He pointed out that all sub - counties have fully equipped hospitals and theaters in Balambala and Modogsahe sub-counties.
“People living in rural areas are not interested in clan groupings that are being advanced by my competitors. All they want to see are services and these are the perimeters they will use to guide their voting,” he added.
