Benue South  Re-Run: Idoma Youths Drums Support For Onjeh

A group of youths from Idoma under the body of Comrade Dan Onjeh’s Volunteer Network has openly thrown their weight behind Comrade Dan Onjeh for the Benue South senatorial seat, calling on the former senate president David Mark not to attribute his failure to any individual or group due to his inability to attract development to Idoma land for the 16 years he held sway in the senate.

In a media chat with journalists in Makurdi, the coordinator of the group, Comrade Okpokwu Ogenyi emphasised that for David Mark calling on President Buhari to remove AVM Monday Morgan as Chief of Defence Intelligence is a clear demonstration of his hatred for the Idoma people. He said the former senate president does not believe that any Idoma man or woman can attain any position of high responsibility without his approval which he will never consent except paying allegiance to him [David Mark], adding that he is still in the illusion of AVM Monday Morgan’s appointment by the peoples President.

“How can Sule Omaji Audu, a lesser member of the Idoma society attribute to himself a status of an elder? It’s disheartening to see Omaji sign a document on behalf of David Mark, a visible enemy of the the Idoma nation calling for the removal of our son who is working hard for the betterment of Nigeria as  regards security intelligence. It is very clear that Mark is ready to dance naked in order to win the re-run election which he has lost already. His ambition to further hold our people hostage is futile effort as even the gods have rejected him. Dragging the name of AVM Monday Morgan into politics is a demonstration of Mark’s acceptance of defeat.”

Comrade Ogenyi further lamented that, “Mark is looking for a way to cover his shame as the people of Idoma are no longer ready to be further enslaved. Nigerians are aware that Morgan’s appointments is based on competence and capacity to deliver the needed results as evident on the ongoing war against Boko Haram in the North eastern region of the country. Morgan who came home during the Christmas was receive with loud ovation which showed that  the Idoma people are truly happy with Mr President for the appointment of their beloved son as one of the Service Chiefs, a feat Idoma could not attain under Mark’s 16 years.”

“For the records, Idoma elders are visible and the world knows them, Chief Steven Lawani, Chief Mike Okibe Onoja, Chief Obande Obeya,Chief John Ochoga,Chief David Attah, Gen. Ejiga, Gen.Onoja, Gen.Adoba, Prof. Oga Ajene, Engr. Okwuoche, Dr. Sam Ode etc are names to look up to when you hear Idoma elders. We urge Idoma people to vote the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Comrade Daniel Onjeh to demonstrate for our liberation from long years of slavery and servitude,” the statement said.
