Published

The Benue State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has lampooned the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) for mischief by its members ahead of 2023 gubernatorial election.


The party said, it has taken cognisance of mischievous and antics of members of the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state regarding the 2023 governorship race, saying that APC is weak and bereft of ideas in moving itself forward in Benue State.


Benue State Peoples Democratic Party was reacting to the purported claims that governor Samuel Ortom’s media aide, Terver Akase was interested in 2023 gubernatorial election.


PDP fingered the opposition party as being the brain behind posters of Terver Akase claiming to be interested in governorship, noting that there’s nothing to trade tackle, other than advising APC in the state to rebrand.

In a statement by Benue State Publiciry Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, Bemgba Iortyom, it said: “In one of such antics recently, the opposition party’s agents printed and published to the social media a 2023 governorship campaign poster in respect of Terver Akase who is the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Samuel Ortom.


“The Chief Press Secretary, Akase, has since distanced himself from, and condemned in totality such antics, making it clear that he is singularly focused on discharging the functions vested to him by his boss, the governor and will not in any wise be distracted by such foibles.

“Nevertheless, PDP, being his party and which emblem was used on the campaign posters, hereby makes it clear that it has anticipated such ploys from the opposition in the state on the way to the 2023 governorship.


“The party believe this is always the case with a weak opposition, the type APC has become in Benue, which, lacking in men, resources and ideas, is left with no weapon in its arsenal other than mischief-making.


Benue PDP enjoin its members to be wary that those antics are targeted at chafing at the bonds of unity and collective focus which hallmark out great party’s dominant standing in the state with a near-total hold on power.

“We advise that APC, rather than sink deeper in the mud of its failure, go back to the drawing board and reinvent itself, same way PDP did when it lost power in 2015 in Benue.


“We urge the opposition party to guide the survivors of its electoral shipwreck in 2019 to concern themselves less with such fruitless ventures as writing meaningless letters, and concentrate more on rebuilding their party which presently stands on the verge of extinction.
