The event was held at Divine Academy in Igbo, Agbeede, and it drew hundreds of people from the Konshisha’s eleven council districts.
For the People’s Democratic Party, PDP Governorship candidate in the state, Rt Hon Titus Uba, and the party’s Senatorial candidate for Benue North-East, Senator Gabriel Suswam, Hon Akase gave well-furnished and decorated campaign offices in Agbeede.

According to him, the public should have confidence in Rt Hon Titus Uba, Senator Suswam, Hon Julius Atoruogh for the Jechira federal constituency, as well as Hon Agile Ordedoo Bem for the Konshisha state assembly seat because they are respectable candidates who will keep their promises.
The Special Adviser urged Konshisha to reject any type of deceit packaged by others to mislead them about who to vote for in 2023, asserting that the PDP has demonstrated that it is the party that works for the interests of the people.
