The former gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Benue Province, Emmanuel Jime, has thrown his weight behind the Idoma governorship aspiration in Benue Province.
Jime, patch receiving a delegation of a pressure level grouping, Benue Rebirth Motion (BRM), in his Abuja residence yesterday, urged the people of Benue Southward Senatorial District, to maintain upwards their combat to create the Benue Province Governor in 2023.
BRM, the umbrella organization leading the aspiration of Benue Southward to create the governor of the province, for the firstly time since its creation, 45 years agone, is existence led by the former Main of Defence Intelligence, AVM Monday Morgan (Rtd.).
According to the former fellow member, House of Representatives, Idoma people should neither be discouraged by whatever setbacks experienced in the course of study of the struggle nor be intimidated by the hurdles ahead, urging for to a greater extent unity and lobbying.
The former Speaker, Benue Province House of Assembly, who promised his continued back up for Idoma governorship aspiration, emphasized the demand for unity of purpose for the objective to be realized. He regretted that he was yet to reckon the required unity within Benue Southward, citing as an illustration, the recent example of zoning of the APC province chairmanship place to Benue Southward.
Jime said he had expected Benue Southward to insist on taking that place elsewhere, considering the nature of politics that plays out in the country at the minute. Rather, to his disappointment, some people in that zone went ahead to solicit for the place.
The APC chieftain, notwithstanding, maintained that whatever cast of zoning that does not give the governorship slot to zone C in 2023 amounts to no zoning. He said the utilisation of the 5 Tiv ruling houses as the element units for the purpose of rotating the business office of the province Governor does not create sense to him.
He argued that, since the Tiv have been leading the combat for justice, fairness and fairness at the federal level, they should also apply the same rule at the province level by incorporating Benue Southward in the zoning and rotation of the province governorship.
“My understanding is that the battle for justice and fairness sometimes is one that must be accompanied by tears, sweat and sacrifice,” he pointed out.
Before in his speech, the National Coordinator of BRM, AVM Morgan, congratulated Jime on his recent appointment as the Executive Secretarial assistant of the Nigerian Shippers Council and solicited his back up for Idoma governorship aspiration in 2023.
The National Coordinator recalled BRM’s before see on the same mission which was really fruitful and expressed hope that the grouping would proceed to count on him.
