Don’t interfere in Benue South race, PDP chieftain tells Tiv politicians
DEPUTY leader of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Elders Forum in Benue State, Chief Abu Shuluwa has called on Tiv politicians not to interfere with the forthcoming re run election between former Senate president, Senator David Mark and All Progressive Congress candidate APC candidate, Mr. Daniel Onjeh.
Shuluwa, who spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria, noted that the people of Benue South senatorial district have the exclusive right to decide on who represent them and wondered why Tiv politicians now scramble to interfere with the affair of Idoma people.
According to him, “PDP will win Benue South not minding that people are jittery about David Mark particularly, my people of Tiv extraction who have no vote in the zone. My advice to them (the Tiv politicians) is that they should not poke nose to the affairs of that zone, let them leave the zone to decide who represents them at the Senate.”
“To me, I believe Mark still possesses the wealth of experience and had given good representation of himself in the past 16 years which if given the opportunity will do more for the growth and development of his senatorial district,” Shuluwa said.
He also called on the Idoma people not to allow external forces to interfere in their affairs, saying, this is the time to reciprocate the kind gestures of Mark to your zone.
