Benue Governorship candidate of the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) in the 2007 elections, Professor Steve Torkuma Ugbah has expressed support for the present administrations in the state and country Nigeria.
Professor Ugbah who served as the Director General of Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom’s campaign organisation during last year’s general elections, in an Easter message, commended the enthusiasm of the people, urging them to be patient and assist government move the state and nation forward.
