Consensus candidate for Benue PDP?

Indications emerged  on Saturday that Benue State PDP may settle for a consensus candidate ahead of tomorrow governorship primaries.

Sunday Tribune gathered from reliable source that  the former speaker of the state Assembly, Honourable Terhemen Tarzoor, might have been picked as the consensus candidate by  the Tiv Traditional Council (TTC) after a marathon meeting with the contestants from the Minda axis.

It was reliably gathered that the meeting was the second that would be held on the need to produce a concensus candidate for the party.

A strong supporter of Tarzoor, who spoke with Sunday Tribune but did not want his name in print, confirmed the report, saying the decision of the traditional rulers was necessary considering the long list of aspirants from the area.

He expressed assurance that other aspirants would surely fall in line and accept the decision.

In a swift reaction, one of the aspirants, Chief Samuel Ortom, has debunked claim that Tarzoor had been chosen among them, stressing that he is still actively going to participate in the Monday’s primaries.
