The newly elected member representing Ado/Okpokwu/Ogbadibo Federal Constituency of Benue State, Phillip Agbese, has urged his constituency to vote massively for the candidate of the APC in the Gubernatorial election in the state.
Agbese stated this at a media parley with select journalists in Abuja, where he unveiled his plans for the people in the National Assembly.
He stated that the people of Benue State had suffered deprivation and bad leadership over several years of PDP maladministration.
“The people of Benue state have seen the worse of times. Purposeful leadership eluded the state, and the time to change from worse to good is here hence the clarion call to ensure that the APC Gubernatorial candidate is supported to win the elections.

“Benue people can not afford to miss the golden opportunity embedded in the Rev Fr Hycainth Alia/Sam Ode ticket. This ticket is the ticket of hope that will reposition Benue state for greatness. Benue state must be freed from the shackles of poverty and deprivation.”
He added that his constituency would ensure it delivers votes for the APC during the gubernatorial election.
“I urge the people of Ado/Okpokwu/Ogbadibo to get their voter’s cards ready to vote overwhelmingly on Saturday for the APC in the gubernatorial election. They must not allow anyone to deceive them about the APC as a party and the quality of the governorship and deputy governorship candidates,” Agbese said.
When asked about the chances of the APC in the elections given that the state is a PDP-controlled state, he stated that the APC has a strong foothold in the state, contrary to what the state government wants the general public to believe.
