APC In Benue Has Every Reason to Be In Fear About March 11th

The social media has become awash with all manner of allegations from supporters of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Benue State to the effect that our great party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) plans to rig the March 11th, 2023 Gubernatorial and State Assembly elections.

While ordinarily we should ignore those allegations as coming from unofficial sources, APC in Benue suffering a chronic lack of quality in its media and publicity department, usually makes do with such unofficial channels to pass its messages.

So we react to them in the measure deserving, that:

They have all reason to be gripped by the fear they are exhibiting as for sure PDP in Benue under the leadership of Governor Samuel Ortom will not on March 11th BLINDLY trust in the electoral system put in place and run by APC as we did on February 25th - we will maintain EXTRA-VIGILANCE at the polling units and collation centres and INSIST at every point on STRICT COMPLIANCE with provisions of the Electoral Act for conduct of the elections.

APC in Benue has every reason to fear since March 11th will be more about our local situation here at home, about the people and what will be their fate under PDP who have promised and resolved to sustain the Prohibition of Open Grazing and Ranches Establishment Law and progressively improve on its enforcement as a proven antidote against the land-grab agenda of the herdsmen;

Or under APC who have promised o repeal the law which they have told the whole world is rather the reason for the atrocities of the herdsmen, yet it is on record that herdsmen attacks predate the law and if anything, the law has rather to a very great degree stemmed the tide of the territorial expansionist agenda of the herdsmen which was was being executed under the guide of FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT for nomadic Fulani herdsmen who entered anywhere including farmlands with their cattle claiming a constitutional freedom to move about as they wanted.

The Benue wing of the cow-loving and people-hating party called APC is understandably jittery and has resorted to raising alarm in the hope they will be able to divert attention from the UGLY AND TERRIBLE facts of their deals and agreements with Miyetti Allah to grant the herdsmen much coveted to Benue lands in exchange for sponsorship with which APC hopes to win the governorship of the state.

But as the adage of our ancestors goes, "the crying of the chicken will not stop the medicine man from performing his duty", so despite APC's crying of wolf where none exists, PDP led by Governor Ortom will give them the beating they deserve come March 11th, 2023.
