• Gemade’s bid is finally crashed as APC turns him down
Confirmed reports have it that former head of service and leading governorship aspirant of the All Progressives Congress ( APC ), Mr. Mike Iordye has stepped down his ambition for Chief Akange Audu.
The decision which was made known a few minutes ago, was taken at a meeting held at Iordye’s instance at the judges quarters residence of Senator George Akume, this afternoon to negotiate terms of the agreement.
The duo who were seen walking out smiling were said to have agreed to this in the interest of the party. Akange who was clad in a casual brown flowing gown held hands with Iordye who wore a black safari accompanied by Mathew Nezan, who attendee as witness.
Meanwhile the final attempt by Sen. Barnabas Gemade to launch his return bid in the APC crashed finally today during a meting with Mbakor elders aimed at inciting them to influence Akume, to support his bid.
The meeting which has just concluded at the residence of Engr. Emmanuel Manger, had the Mbakor elders advising Gemade to forget the bid as he came too late and that the acceptance and goodwill the party was getting from Zone A due to Ayabam’s candidacy was overwhelming and thus suicidal to substitute him now.
Reports stemming from the venue said on hearing this response an angry Gemade gave the Mbakor Fifty Thousand Naira only, as transport and stormed out of the venue.
It could be recalled that only yesterday he was advised to forget the dream of an automatic ticket in the APC, during a long meeting which stretched till early hours of today held at Akume’s residence in Makurdi.
