The Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC) Tiv Emancipation Forum (TEF), has given reasons why it hosted the former Acting Director General of Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON), Dr. Paul Angya.
Tersoo Gbermaku, Chairman of the Forum, said the former DG’s news of contesting for the position of Benue State governor was sketchy and they invited him to hear better from him.
He said the body which coordinates activities of Tiv people within AMAC was interested in the candidature of Dr. Angya and urged him to set the agenda on how to run affairs of Benue, if elected.
Gbermaku stated that the former DG’s contributions at SON and other areas within and outside the state had proved him worthy of seeking for the position.
He, therefore urged him not to be desperate about his quest but follow proper steps that would qualify him for the position.
The chairman noted that with the experience of members of the Forum, there was the need to interact with the governorship hopeful on major areas that needed urgent attention in the state.
Responding, the governorship aspirant, accompanied by some of his friends, said he was committed to the ideals that will develop Benue beyond its present status, which he assured them of doing all that would make the state attend greater heights.
Angya told the Forum members to shun politics of zoning and believe only in those that have the potentials to bring reforms that will create job opportunities and end social vices, especially the continued killing of Benue farmers by suspected Fulani herdsmen.
The forum comprises of Tiv people in Karu, Jikwoyi, Kugbo, Nyanya Lugbe, Gwarimpa and Garki among other places that make up the twelve political wards of AMAC.
