Political Drama In Benue As Senator Akume’s Kinsmen Pledge Loyalty To Governor Ortom


The political battle for the soul of Benue between the Senator George Akume led All Progressives Congress, APC, and Governor Samuel Ortom of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has taken a dramatic turn as the kinsmen of the embattled Senator of Jemgbagh extraction comprising Gboko, Buruku and Tarka today pledged their unalloyed support for the Governor ahead of the 2019 elections.

Speaking in Makurdi during a courtesy call on the Governor by Jemgagh Elders Forum, Mr. Sam Tsumba, said the visit was to enable them register their solidarity with the Governor and to welcome him back to his former party.

“We have come to express the determination of Jemgbah to stand behind you our Governor owing to your laudable performance in office and appointment of many of our sons into key positions including Professor Anthony Ijohor as SSG and the acting Chairman, Board of Internal Revenue Service, Mr Terzunwe Atser which would garner support for you in our area.”
