Following the release of the time-table for primaries of elective positions by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Governor Gabriel Suswam of Benue State has urged party members to brace up and ensure victory of PDP in the state.
The Governor, who said this at the weekend in Vandeikya local government of the state during the flag off of his free medical treatment mission, maintained that the party is poised to clinch all the elective seats in the state in 2015.
He assured that the primaries in the state would be conducted without bias, saying that where a clear winner does not emerge, the option A4 method where delegates line up behind their candidates would be adopted.
Suswam passionately pleaded with the people to ensure that he gets nomination for the senate seat of Zone A as a reciprocal gesture for the appointment of over 40 of their sons in his cabinet, adding too several developmental projects like electricity, roads, schools renovation amongst others that he carried out in the area.
“In fact, by next week, I will inaugurate a seven (7) man committee to actualize this. I will also ensure that the bill for the creation of first class chiefs in the state is passed into law before we leave office. So, I advice you people to start consulting amongst yourselves who would be installed in these position in your domain”, Suswam said.
