Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Hope Abah, Makurdi

A gu­ber­na­to­rial as­pi­rant in Benue state, Engr. Rose­line Ada Chenge, at the weekend was en­dorsed by Ai-uja, Owukpa com­mu­nity in Og­badigbo lo­cal govern­ment area of the state as its sole can­di­date for next year’s gen­eral elec­tion.

Chenge was also con­ferred with a hon­ourary chief­taincy ti­tle of ‘Agaba Anya I’ at the cer­e­mony which held in Ipole Ai-uja, Owukpa king­dom as a mark of recog­ni­tion for her con­tri­bu­tions to com­mu­nity ser­vice.

Speak­ing dur­ing the oc­ca­sion, na­tional chair­man of Ai-uja De­vel­op­ment As­so­ci­a­tion, Joseph Okoh, pledged al­le­giance of the com­mu­nity to en­sure that Chenge not only clinches the Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party (PDP)’s ticket but would mo­bi­lize sup­port to earn her vic­tory to the Govern­ment House in 2015.

“With the crowd that you have seen here to­day, it is clear ev­i­dence that all sons, daugh­ters and strangers in this land have ac­cepted you and will give you our un­al­loyed sup­port when­ever and wher­ever you need us,” he said.

He called on the gu­ber as­pi­rant not to re­lent in her good works of im­pact­ing pos­i­tively on ru­ral com­mu­ni­ties across the state through pro­vi­sions of the earth dam, ru­ral road net­works, cre­at­ing job op­por­tu­ni­ties, dis­tri­bu­tion of mech­a­nized farm equip­ments to farm­ers and chang­ing eco­nomic sta­tus of the people.

Re­spond­ing, Mrs. Chenge thanked the Onomo of Owukpa, Chief Em­manuel Odeh and all the ward heads for the hon­our and promised a hope for a bet­ter fu­ture if voted into power in the com­ing elec­tion.
