Chief Press Secretary to Benue State Governor, Mr Terver Akase, has called on those drumming support for him to contest for Benue State Governorship in 2023 to obey the directive of Governor Samuel Ortom banning all campaign activities by his appointees.



Akase said his loyalty is to the Governor and what is most important to him now is to support his principal to continue to deliver good governance to the people of the state. 


He thanked those who have used their resources to canvass support for him against 2023 governorship election even as he has not publicly declared his intention.


Read his statement below

SUSPENSION OF CAMPAIGN ACTIVITIES 


"Following the directive by my boss, His Excellency Governor Samuel Ortom that all his appointees should stop 2023 campaign activities, I hereby urge all those who have been drumming support for me ahead of the 2023 governorship race, to cease all such campaigns henceforth.


"I commend His Excellency Governor Ortom for his wisdom in handling the affairs of the state in general and for asking all his appointees to refrain from campaign activities and concentrate on their duties of delivering service to the people who gave him their mandate.


"I pledge to wholeheartedly comply with the Governor's directive and also pledge my unflinching loyalty to him and sustained commitment to his administration. 


" I appeal to everyone who used their hard earned resources and energy to write and advocate for me despite me not publicly declaring any intention to run for office, to henceforth, cease all such campaigns. 


" What is most important at this time is for me to ensure that I support my boss Governor Samuel Ortom to continue to provide good governance to the people of Benue State."

 

Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom had placed a ban on all forms of campaigns by his appointees, either for themselves or for others ahead of the 2023 elections, saying it was too early for any of his appointees to engage in campaigns or political consultations, as the 2023 polls are still two and a half years away.


Governor Ortom said any of his appointees who fails to obey the directive will have to resign and concentrate on campaigning for 2023, stressing that it would amount to conflict of interests to remain in government and be campaigning for political positions.
