THE 2015 GOVERNORSHIP RACE IN BENUE: AN OPEN LETTER

 Image

On the 29th of May 2015, His Excellency, Rt. Hon. Gabriel T. Suswam will exit the stage as Governor. The election to replace him will be held on the 28th of February, 2015, it is no longer news that various tendencies and aspirations have pervaded the Landscape seeking to step in after him. This letter seeks to convince you as a Benue Political Party delegate and Benue Voter on the necessity to support a candidate from Benue South to be Governor in 2015.

Since the creation of Benue State in 1976, it is true that no man or woman from Benue South has held reigns as governor of the state, Aper Aku (1976-1983) was first elected Governor followed by Rev Fr. Moses Oshio Adasu in the aborted third republic, both of them where from Zone A, George Akume held sway from 1999- 2007 from Zone B and Rt. Hon. Gabriel T. Suswam has occupied the exalted office since 2007 he is also from Zone A. We suggest that there is no better time than now to shift power to Benue South, we believe that the people of Benue State are one and are entitled to same rights and privileges, we are convinced that whereas the Benue South people have always supported candidates from

Zone A and Zone B, it will only be fair and fitting for that gesture to be reciprocated in 2015.

We are of the view that Benue people need to have a taste of the sought of

leadership that Benue South can offer, we also acknowledge the fact that Benue South cannot produce a Governor without the support of the other Zones, the population just doesn’t permit that, we are of the opinion that the support of the other two zones are immensely necessary otherwise the hope for a Benue South Governor will remain a mirage and hence this letter to you, seeking for your support.

We the undersigned Benue Youths, desirous of change are thus committed to supporting the most credible Benue South Governorship candidate both at the Party primaries and the General Elections in 2015. We are doing this because we believe that the structure of Benue is such that a Benue South Governor will be forced to work and deliver results, being a minority he will have no choice but to work hard and deliver the much needed projects and infrastructure across the state.

    First let me apologize, the decision to elect someone to represent you is paramount to the success of democracy. I can not vote in Benue, but I treasure it like my own home. Where ever you are from is always special to your heart and you always want it to be represented well, but right now Nigeria needs to look to the future and elect people that can move past the pettiness of tribe, or area, or family. Only by uniting can any of us ever get past what is holding us back. Benue should be an economic star in Nigeria, but it can not achieve this without pulling together, and you need a leader that is able to separate his own thoughts of profit and put the people first. Then he will truly profit.
