Igede Delegation Pledges Total Support For Comrade Onjeh

A delegation of the Igede Nation of the Benue South Senatorial District popularly known as Zone C paid a visit to Comrade Dan Onjeh, the Senatorial Candidate of the All Progressives Congress for the zone today.

The delegation led by Engr. Morgan Okwuoche Morgan pledged their total support for Comrade Daniel Onjeh in the re-run coming up next year against the incumbent senator David Mark.

According to the spokesperson of the group, Dr. Lewis Obeka, the appalling leadership of Senator David Mark has rendered the Igede nation into darkness. The land cannot boast of any federal presence or any sign that they are part of Nigeria.

He, therefore, gave a list of demands to Daniel Onjeh ranging from Federal Presence and the linkage of the Igede Nation to the neighboring states of Cross River and Ebonyi. He requested that Dan should help to facilitate a first class status for their traditional ruler.

He called the re-run a battle between David and Goliath with Dan the real David against Senator Mark’s Goliath.

He emphasized the position that never again would the people of Zone C allows one man to monopolize an elective seat for eternity as it the zone is a monarchy. It is as a result of this resolve that the people of Oju and Obi has decided with one voice to give 100% of their votes to Daniel Onjeh for a paradigm change.

Responding to this statement, Comrade Onjeh, told them he loves the Igede nation as his own. He said he has always regarded the Igede as his brothers and sisters. He added that it would no longer be the case that the Igede would be ignored or marginalized if he is elected. He has the plan to carry everyone along.

He thanked the delegation and urge them to continue to spread the message of change to ensure total emancipation from the grip of David Mark and his cabal.

The delegation was a representation of the 14 clans of Igede land:
1. Wisdom Ahonye Uwokwu clan
2. Hon. Ejira U. Joel, Idele ward
3. Comrade John O. Odeh, ito
4. Idikwu Clifford Owo Ward
