Benue APC In-search Of Governor`s Lieutenant


In An effort to meet the December 2nd, 2018 target for replacement of candidates for governorship and House of Assembly elections respectively, the Benue State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) alleged it had harmonised all matters preventing the party from picking a running mate for its governorship candidate.

The APC Publicity Secretary in the state, James Ornguga, stated this in a chat with correspondent in Makurdi, the state capital on Monday 26th,2018.

He believed the running mate would be announced on or before December 1st,2018 on the day the party would initiate its campaign council.

He said, “You know since it is an election matter, there were divergent interests but they have been harmonised and in a couple of days, Benue APC will announce the running mate of our governorship candidate and the campaign council at the same time.



“The position of the running mate to the governorship candidate of the party was zoned to the Benue South Senatorial District otherwise known as  Zone C where all the elders of the party in that axis have agreed on a particular person whose name would be forwarded to INEC for confirmation before December 2 and would subsequently be announced to the public on the day the party will inaugurate its campaign council.

“I can assure you that within a few days from now, the whole thing would be made public and all the speculations and rumour would be laid to rest.”

Our correspondent gathered that the choice of the running mate had become a serious issue after five prominent persons from Zone C  indicated interest.

Those who were chosen according to a reliable source within the APC include the Commandant-General of Peace Corps of Nigeria, Mr. Dickson Akor; A former Minister of State for Niger Delta Affairs, Dr. Sam Ode; former members federal House of Representatives, Hassan Saleh and  Nelson Alapa as well as former NANS President, Daniel Onjeh respectively.
