Benue South senatorial district residents have been reassured by Governor Samuel Ortom that the People’s Democratic Party, or PDP, administration will continue to work toward improving the state’s conditions.
Goldennewsng reports that On Monday, December 5, 2022, the Governor gave a speech at the start of the PDP senatorial campaigns in Benue South. At the same time, Senator Abba Moro said something that was supposed to be about the PDP crises at the national level.
Thousands of party supporters from the nine local government areas of the zone attended the campaign, which was held at the Pavilion Square in the Oju Local Government Area.
Governor Ortom promised that those elected on the party’s platform would continue to do everything in their power to bring development to the state, and he thanked the people of Benue South for their dedication to the party.
“You have done us well, given us support, and the only thing we can do to repay you is to ensure that we work to improve Benue State, which is what we are doing,” says the company.
The Governor reiterated that the PDP was a single, unbreakable platform in the state that was committed to winning all elections and expressed satisfaction with Benue South’s patriotism and dedication to the party.
“Let me tell you, PDP is a serious business in Benue State,” he stated. We will win all of our elections by God’s grace. “We are one unifying body that is committed to the victory of our party, the PDP, because the APC has failed this country,” Governor Ortom stated to the throng of supporters.
He reaffirmed that his administration would continue to fulfill its responsibilities to the people despite difficulties and a lack of resources.
The Governor, who lamented the state’s marginalization despite his administration’s commitment to development, urged voters to cast ballots for PDP candidates he noted were dedicated to the state’s collective good.
Comrade Abba Moro, who is running for re-election as the PDP senatorial candidate and represents the Benue South Senatorial district, recapped his accomplishments in his speech and dismissed media reports that he was responsible for PDP crises at the national level.
“I think that the Governor, as the party’s leader, can resolve issues within the party in Benue State. Even as a leader in the G-5, he can work with his colleagues to make sure that the right thing is done and that all PDP parties to the crisis do what needs to be done so that we can win the election in 2023.
Senator Moro stated, “I will never assume the duty of the leader of the party in Benue state,” and “I have restrained myself from commenting on the crisis in the PDP, believing that our leaders know the right thing to do at the appropriate time.” He added, “I will never assume the duty of the leader of the party in Benue state.”
He claimed that he never made any remarks, either explicitly or implicitly, during the inauguration of his campaign council.
“I want to say here that, whatever is happening at the national level is left to those people who are playing national politics to resolve the matter,” he stated. And if they don’t find a solution, I’ll call you to let you know and ask you where we should go.
The North Central Development Commission, Rotation of Power among Political Blocs, and Local Government Autonomy, among others, are among the 13 bills that Senator Moro disclosed he had sponsored in the Senate.
Dr. Gabriel Suswam, the senator from Benue North-East, stated in his message of goodwill that he had come to show Senator Moro his support. He described Senator Moro as a “prominent son of Zone C, a grassroots politician, and a voice that cannot be ignored in the Senate and politics of Nigeria.”
Sir John Ngbede, the PDP’s Deputy Governorship Candidate in the State, made a brief statement on behalf of Engr. Titus Uba, the PDP’s Governorship Candidate, that the PDP was sending a balanced team to the National Assembly and urged the public to collect their PVs (Permanent Voters Cards) and vote in large numbers for PDP candidates.
Hon. Isaac Mffo, the Acting State Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), who handed out party flags to candidates in the zone, said that the “PDP is an inclusive political platform” and urged the candidates to include everyone in their campaigns.
Dr. Elijah Adakole, the director of the Benue South Senatorial campaigns, had previously stated that the people of the zone were ready to re-elect Senator Moro and vote for all PDP candidates due to his track record of success in the areas of health, infrastructure, and education.
In separate remarks, Elder Christopher Abah, the occasion’s Chairman, and Chairlady Mrs. Ene Edache, the Chairlady, pledged their readiness to garner support for all PDP candidates.
