SDP Promise To Recapture Benue State Come 2019
Ahead of the 2019 general elections, the Social Democratic Party in Benue, on Tuesday, promised its aspirants of free and fair primaries.
Engr. John Enemari, the chairman of the party in the state, revealed this while granting an interview with NAN, in Makurdi.
He stated that the party was ready for the forthcoming general elections and the party will reclaim government in the state.
History has it that Benue state had been ruled for 18 months between 1992 and 1993, by Late Rev Fr. Moses Adasu.
Enemari, stated that the party was riding on its earlier achievements in the state, in the forth coming general election.
He further said that the 18-month administration of SDP during the third republic remained the best ever, since the creation of the state.
He described SDP as the “beautiful bride” of Benue politics, adding that it would record overwhelming victory in the 2019 polls.
“SDP had ruled Benue state between 1992 and 1993 before the regime was truncated on the 4th November 1993.
“Within this period, Rev. Fr. Moses Adasu-led administration was able to carry out landmark projects.
“Within 18 months, Adasu established Benue State University, Makurdi, College of Education Oju, built JS Tarka Foundation and relocated College of Education Katsina-Ala to its permanent site among others.
“So we are banking on these previous achievements, coupled with our resolve to provide a level playing ground for all aspirants seeking nominations on our platform.
“We are now the beautiful bride of Benue politics; everybody wants to identify with us. That is why you will see that we have the highest number of aspirants seeking nominations in the state.”
