The Ortom/Abounu Governorship Campaign Organization congratulates the leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Benue State, and former Senate Minority Leader, Senator Dr George Akume as well as Senator Barnabas Gemade for their well deserved victory in last Saturday’s National Assembly elections.
By their triumph the electorate in the Benue North East and West have reiterated their confidence in the performance of the two senators in the green chambers of the assembly, acknowledged their leadership qualities and also accepted the message of change canvassed by the All Progressives Congress, APC.
The organization has also felicitated with other returning members of the red chambers, Herman Iorwase Hembe, Vandeikya/Konshisha; Orker Jev, Buruku, and Dr John Dyegh, Gboko/Tarka federal constituencies whose mandates have been revalidated.
Similarly, the Ortom / Abounu Governorship Campaign Organization rejoices with newly elected members of the House of Representatives, Barrister Iorember Wayo for Kwande/Ushongo, Dickson Tarkighir, Makurdi/Guma, and Engr Mark Gillah, Gwer/Gwer West.
We pray that all these representatives of the peoples’ mandate freely and sacrificially given would strive to justify the confidence reposed in them by confronting the challenges of development and welfare of the people frontally and also deepen the democratic process.
Yet the greatest felicitations and gratitude go to God almighty for facilitating change because one can receive nothing except given from above; as well as the electorate for the sacrifices made to effect change.
The organization urges APC members and supporters to be magnanimous at this moment and to welcome, accept, and reconcile with as many as indicate the intention of teeming up with them to conclude the remaining elections on April 11th 2015.
We urge all APC members and supporters to redouble efforts to ensure the complete victory of the party even as we caution against utterances and conduct that could ignite crisis or violence in the consciousness that we all belong to one big Benue family.
Once again, congratulations.
Ortom / Abounu Governorship Campaign Organization.
