Ahead of the 2019 governorship election in Benue State, the campaign poster of Dr. Paul Orhii, former Director General of National Agency for Food Drugs Administration and Control have flooded the social media.

One of the campiang posters sighted by IDOMA VOICE bore the image of the ex-NAFDAC boss garbed in a gray top and a bold inscription that read: Benue 2019.

He is running on the platform of the People Democratic Party, PDP.

Orhii was born and raised at Lessel in Benue State of Nigeria. He attended St. Francis College, Otukpo, Benue State, which he successfully completed in 1980 with a “Distinction” in the West African School Certificate Examination.
