From Uche Nnorom, Makurdi
A movement known as Peoples Democratic Party, PDP-Goodluck Jonathan Presidency Mass Mobilization Movement (GJPM3) has advised Benue people especially Benue North East senatorial district to support governor Gabriel Suswam to emerge as senator in 2015.
The movement which is planning a peace summit for the North Central zone on a date yet to be disclosed, said that it is working with Benue to host the summit.
Director General of the movement, Prince Felix Ihonre who disclosed this while inaugurating the state chapter of the movement in Makurdi yesterday, explained that the peace summit would bring the people of the zone together with all shades of suggestions that would be a model towards bringing lasting peace to the region.
Ihonre stressed the importance of peace, arguing that the need is to champion the cause of peace “in all our homes.”
Speaking on the senatorial ambition of the state governor, he noted that as a young man Suswam has dedicated his time to serve the people of the state and now that he has made himself available to serve the state in another capacity as senator, the people should throw their weight behind him.
Ihonre who also drummed support for President Goodluck Jonathan said the president has kept faith with his projects and the time of completion.
He observed that Jonathan has ensured that peace return to Niger Delta and he was confident that the president would also restore peace in the country.
He condemned those that have the intention of making the nation ungovernable, describing them as the enemies of the nation.
Earlier, the state coordinator of the movement, Patrick Yaavur noted that the efforts made by the President in containing the Boko Haram menace is worthy of commendation.
He advised Nigerians not to politicize the issue of security.
He also said “The good governance of the president has also been replicated in Benue State where close to 30 women aspired for various positions in the party primaries in Benue State.”
