Ahead of the 2023 elections, the people of Benue have clearly decided that the Peoples Democratic Party’s Rt Hon Titus Uba is their top choice, according to Terver Akase, special adviser to the governor of Benue State on media and publicity.
The overwhelming support Engr Uba has gotten as the PDP campaign traverses the state, according to Akase, is a glaring sign that the populace has decided to elect the amiable Speaker of the Benue State House of Assembly as governor on March 11, 2023.
The Special Adviser emphasised that Benue people would not be disappointed when Uba becomes their governor, noting that the PDP guber candidate is a seasoned administrator who is also humble and is a team player. Akase made this statement as a guest on Brother’s FM’s political program, “The Political Conservation.”
He said Uba will make a good Governor, having garnered immense legislative experience as Speaker of the Benue State House of Assembly under whose leadership, the legislature has enjoyed peace and has passed numerous people-oriented bills.
Mr Akase also said it is heartwarming to see that the people of Benue North-West Senatorial District are unanimous that their votes will be for his principal, Governor Samuel Ortom, the same way the people of Benue North-East and those of Benue South are ready to return Senator Gabriel Suswam and Senator Abba Moro to the Senate, while also electing other PDP candidates in the state for the House of Representatives and State Assembly seats.
He stated that Governor Ortom has done well in all sectors of the economy as Governor and Uba would consolidate on those gains to execute his blueprint which is hinged on security and agriculture.
The Special Adviser pointed out that Benue people have apparently rejected the All Progressives Congress, APC, citing the large scale defections of APC members in Tarka Local Government Area and other parts of the state where the PDP campaign team has so far visited.
Akase thanked the people of the state for the huge support and gave assurance that they would not regret vesting their confidence and trust in the PDP.
