The former gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Benue State, Emmanuel Jime, has thrown his weight behind the Idoma governorship aspiration in Benue State.
Jime, while receiving a delegation of a pressure group, Benue Rebirth Movement (BRM), in his Abuja residence yesterday, urged the people of Benue South Senatorial District, to keep up their fight to produce the Benue State Governor in 2023.
BRM, the umbrella organization leading the aspiration of Benue South to produce the governor of the state, for the first time since its creation, 45 years ago, is being led by the former Chief of Defence Intelligence, AVM Monday Morgan (Rtd.).
According to the former member, House of Representatives, Idoma people should neither be discouraged by any setbacks experienced in the course of the struggle nor be intimidated by the hurdles ahead, urging for more unity and lobbying.
The former Speaker, Benue State House of Assembly, who promised his continued support for Idoma governorship aspiration, emphasized the need for unity of purpose for the objective to be realized. He regretted that he was yet to see the required unity within Benue South, citing as an example, the recent case of zoning of the APC state chairmanship position to Benue South. (Dailypost)
