MAKURDI/GUMA 2019: Mbakye Youths have thrown their weight behind Utyondo House of representative ticket

By  Gwabo Gwaza Godwin

The Mbakye youths of Mbadwem council ward of Guma local government area have thrown their weight behind an Utyondo house of representative ticket come 2019.

The group made its position known during a courtesy call visit on the Executive Secretary, Benue State Emergency Management Agency, Mr. Emmanuel Shior today in Makurdi.

Speaking, Mr. Igbudu Shimayina James who applauded the efforts of BSEMA boss and Gov Ortom towards making sure the IDPs have enough food and shelters, stated that it was brazenly and nauseating for any Utyondo man to say that the house of representative seat which is the only big elected position to be occupied by an Utyondo person in this dispensation should go to another people, adding that those making such request ought to have repayed them  (Mbadwem) community their house of representative seat which was loaned out to them in 2015 if they no longer want it before talking about loaning it out to another local government.

Other who spoke included, Joshua Torkpande for Mbakyulan, Jo Bam for Mbakur and Akinde Steven for Ukum, all thanked Gov. Ortom for the appointment of Mr. Emmanuel Shior, adding that they have no doubt over his ability to deliver in his given assignment, even as they resolved to fight for what rightly belongs to Utyondo and declared that curse shall be on any Utyondo son or daughter who will not support Utyondo house of representative ticket come 2019.

They also expressed satisfaction over the manner Gov. Ortom has stood for them throughout the trying time and prayed to God to continue to guard and protect him.

On his part, BSEMA boss Mr. Shior intimated the group about what Governor Ortom is doing to ensure that permanent peace has return to the areas affected by Fulani killings, and added that though his job was a challenging one but with the help of his boss (Ortom) who always has his listening ears he is optimistic of making a positive impact.

On the demand by the group that some of them who are IDPs but are not in the camps should also be considered for relief materials and other welfares, Mr. Shior said that he would consult his principal to seek the approval from him before arriving at conclusion.

He again appealed to Mbakye youths not to waver on their stand for Utyondo house of representative ticket come 2019, maintaining that it would be suicidal for Utyondo people to concede  the house of representative seat to another people.
