Guber hopeful vows to sustain Ortom’s policy on security


Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship contender in Benue State, Dr. Paul Angya, has disclosed one of his primary objectives of seeking the state’s top job is to uphold Governor Samuel Ortom’s policy on securing the state.

Unveiling his policy document tagged ‘The New Deal’ yesterday in Makurdi, Angya expressed disgust that the state had over the years been plagued by infrastructure deficit.

He said: “It is high time the cankerworm of insecurity confronting the state is dealt with decisively. The 2023 general election will revalidate our right to live and fight this hydra-dreaded monster through our anti-open grazing law.


“The state has been turned into a killing field, especially my maternal home, Guma. I trained at the Institute of Security and will use my experience to sustain the governor’s stance on indiscriminate and brutal killing of our people.”

On the policy document, the former acting Director General, Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) said he would look at Benue holistically and place it where it ought to be.

His words: “The New Deal takes a look at the whole scope of the state. It is a document that will shape our vision and mission as a people. I am coming with a full grasp of the challenges confronting Benue in all sectors and how to take up the state from where Governor Ortom will leave it.

“My document will focus on infrastructure, education, good governance, women, youths and sports development, Information and Communications Technology (ICT), science and innovation, electricity and power generation, healthcare systems, industry, trade and investment, agriculture value chain and culture, tourism, environment and religion.”

The former DG of SON is the first governorship aspirant to unveil his policy document publicly ahead of the 2023 governorship election in the state.
