Nigerian Concord Newspaper
Frontline governorship of the PDP, Barrister Dave Iorhembay, today got a heavy weight from the party’s excos in Guma local government where he hails from.
This is coming just as the entire Sherev community in Makurdi and Guma local governments have also thrown their weights behind the ambition of the former Deputy National Secretary of the PDP.
In his address at the separate events, the PDP gubernatorial aspirant, Barr. Iorhemba, explained that he came to intimate them of his intention to contest for governorship in Benue state.
He assured them that the state would be a better place as a result of his accumulated wealth of knowledge which he would use if elected as governor come 2019.
The former PDP national legal adviser who regretted the level suffering in the state said that he would use his legal, executive and legislative experiences to lift the state to the greater level.
Responding for Guma PDP Exco at the meeting which was held at Hon. Jerome Uyima’s residence in Makurdi, Mrs. Comfort Tiza, Hon. James Gwer and Benedict Aluga who spoke for Nongov, Utyondo and Sherev said, they are now relieved with the declaration of Dave Iorhemba whom they described as the only hope for a common man.
They noted that the coming of Iorhemba will not only reconcile the party but will also save the state from the contemporary slavery condition.
Also on their parts at the meeting of Sherev PDP which took place at elder Cletus Upaa’s residence, Elder Oliver Uvii, John Akombo and Benjamin Tor who spoke for Mbawa, Nyiev and Mbagwen communities said they are giving their blessing and support to Iorhemba because of their confidence in him considering his antecedence.
The other highlight of the events were the presentation of Rt. Hon. Iorhemba to the party exco and the people of Sherev as well as the decamping of APC elders, Achir kyegh, Orvihi Igbo and Elder Pius Kedanyi to PDP.
On the entourage were Media coordinator, Jiji Jack, Hon. Clement Doo, Hon. Benjamin Nyiyongo, Moses Akume, Hon. Martins Kershio as well as Hon. Wilfred Kwaghbee amongst many others.
