Despite the time-table announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for the general elections next year, politicians have been urged against dumping good governance for politicking.

Senate President Bukola Saraki told his colleagues at the upper chamber that it is too early for 2019 politicking to override the legislative agenda and the larger work of governance.

In the green chamber, Yakubu Dogara said there are no sanctuaries anywhere in the country for killers and other hardened criminals who feed on the people’s blood.

It was in their remarks at the resumption of the National Assembly in Abuja after the Christmas/New Year recess.

The Senate President kicked against the heightening frenzy that has been trailing INEC’S announcement of the time-table earlier in the year. He warned that it was too early to sacrifice good governance and legislative works on the altar of 2019 politicking.
