Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Benue State governorship flag bearer, Titus Uba has said he has the requisite experience to sustain the fight against insecurity, as well as navigate through it.
Uba, who is also Speaker, Benue State House Assembly stated this recently at the commissioning of Tyavkase Support Group for Uba/Ortom, Achusa community in Makurdi, the Benue State capital.
He said: “The attacks on People of Benue by armed Fulani herdsmen was an age long phenomena which the present administration of Governor Samuel Ortom has done so much to contain through instruments of the law”
“As a lawmaker, I was deeply involved in the enactment of the Open Grazing Prohibition and Ranches Establishment Law 2017 and would consolidate on the efforts of the present administration as far as the issue of insecurity is concerned.”
According to him, a novice in the business of statecraft is the most dangerous thing to contemplate as far as 2023 governorship is concerned.
He urged the people to take advantage of his experience to move the state forward.
Uba lauded Governor Ortom for the infrastructural drive in the state, in spite of the daunting security challenges and expressed his willingness to collaborate with development partners to add value to the state if elected.
In their separate remarks, the Chairman, Gwer-West Local Government Council, Andrew Ayande, Member representing Gwer-East State Constituency at the Benue State House of Assembly, Geoffrey Agbatse and Bursar, Benue State Polytechnic, Ugbokolo, Mrs Susan Waya said they were impressed with Uba’s antecedents and track record of experience in the private and public sectors and assured him of their support to win the 2023 governorship.
Earlier, leader of the group, Tyavkase had informed that the donation of a campaign office for the guber hopeful was a demonstration of their support for him and promised to continue to mobilize support for him till he wins the governorship seat.
