Political and Chieftain of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Chief Obande Obeya, the Oyame K’idoma has said there is no animosity between the Tiv and Idoma ahead of the rerun senatorial elections.
The elder statesman who made this clarification when he hosted the APC
senatorial candidate, Daniel Onjeh said he was speaking on the authority of the Och’idoma, the traditional ruler of the Idoma nation who confirmed same to him in confidence.
“i have asked the Och’idoma if there is any quarrel between the Benue south people and the Tiv nation and that question was answered with an emphatic no.
“the kind of politics they are now playing has shifted from the bogus promises of the creation of Apa state to one of whipping up a wedge between the Tiv and the Idoma through divisive sentiments.” He explained.
