Igede people reject ‘bench-warming’ Samson Okwu

Written By Idoma Television on Friday, July 14, 2017 | 12:21:00 AM

A group has asked the member representing the Oju/Obi Federal Constituency of Benue State, Samson Okwu, not to seek a return to the House of Representatives in 2019 but to give way for another candidate, to maintain ‘the principle of balance of power and rotational arrangement employed in Igede politics.’

The group, Igede Development Index, stated this in a press statement which urged Okwu to heed the appeal and not try to break established Igede political order, explaining that Okwu who comes from Obi Local Government Area (LGA) should leave when he would have spent two terms of cumulative eight years by 2019 so that a candidate from Oju LGA could take leadership of the Oju/Obi federal constituency.

The statement signed by the group’s President, Amos Glad and Secretary, Ojiya James Ajah, asserted that apart from the need to rotate power, Okwu’s performance in office had not been satisfactory.
