PDP should forget Benue ~ APC

Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Benue State Comrade Abba Yaro has told the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to forget about ruling the state.

He said after ruling the state for 16 years, Benue is worse, with its economy in  a shambles.

Yaro spoke while donating an 18-seater bus to Benue State Students Union. He said PDP would never govern the state again, as they have destroyed the economy.

He assured workers that salary problems would soon be over, and advised the former governor to refund the N107 billion the Justice Margaret Kpojime-led Commission indicted him and his associates of embezzling.

This, he said, would enable Governor Ortom meet some needs of the people.
Appealing for calm and understanding from party members, Comrade Yaro promised that the Ortom administration would soon stabilise.

Elder statesmen and chieftain of APC in the state Gen. Lawrence Onoja (retd) has said the previous administration laid booby traps to make the state ungovernable for this administration.

Addressing reporters shortly after he visited Governor Ortom in the Government House, Makurdi, General Onoja said despite the difficulties, the governor will succeed, judging from the way he started.
He hailed Ortom for addressing development challenges despite the economic situation.

Onoja called for patience, understanding and support  to enable the government continue to serve the state.
