From Uche Nnorom, Makurdi
A governorship aspirant under the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Benue State Tivlumun Nyitse has lamented over the abysmal failure of Governor Ortom Administration in the State.
Nyitse, who made the lamentation in an interview with newsmen in Makurdi yesterday, regretted that the APC government under Ortom has failed to develop the State in more than three (3) years.
He particularly, decried the dilapidated state of infrastructure in the State, especially Makurdi, the State capital, observing that it has been turned into the most dirtiest cities in the country, unlike what it was during the PDP era.
Nyitse said the Samuel Ortom government started with a moral burden, noting that he has a guilt haunting him uptil now.
“We have people who came into office just to acquire power without vision and mission. The government has failed in the areas of agriculture, education and security”, Nyitse fumed.
The former Permanent Secretary Government House said Governor Ortom would not be foreclosed from returning to the PDP but admonished that justice must prevail in selecting the party’s candidate in 2019.
“Those who have been there for a longtime, should be considered for fairness. One cannot leave the party, get governorship seat in another, then come back to pick it. The party must ensure that there is transparency and sincerity during the primaries. The last option opened may be consensus and where this fails, the aspirants should be allowed to test their popularity”, he advised.
The one-time Press Secretary to Military Administrator of Benue State Joshua Obademi boasted that he possess the experience, exposure and training to galvanize and harness human resources to produce results.
