2019: Group Obtains Nomination Form For Abba Moro To Contest For Senate Seat
A League of Friends from Ado Local Government Area (LGA) of Benue State has purchased the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Expression of Interest and nomination forms for ex-Interior Minister, Mr. Abba Moro.
Recall that Moro, had earlier expressed interest to contest for the Benue South senatorial race in the 2019 general election.
Presenting the forms to Moro at his residence in Otukpo, on behalf of members of the group, a former Deputy Speaker of the Benue State House of Assembly, Hon. Stephen Onmeje, said they were convinced that the ex-Interior Minister would properly represent Benue South in the Senate.
Noting that the membership of the group cuts across various interest groups including politicians, professionals and civil servants, the ex-lawmaker remarked that the people’s decision was borne out of their trust in the comrade’s ability to protect their interest.
His words: “The people of Ado and indeed all other persons who are also by extension our federal constituency friends are collectively calling on you (Abba Moro) to serve us. We invite others to join in the campaign to have a good representative. Just as you represented us as a Minister, we believe that you will do even more when we send you to the upper chamber,” Onmeje stated.
Onmeje added: “As the comrade worked closely with David Mark and watched his performance in National affairs especially at the Senate, he must have studied all that he has done in the past, and we know for truth that if the people of the Benue South senatorial district do the needful by giving him the mandate, they will never regret.”
Moro, in his response, said he felt overwhelmed with the purchase and presentation of the forms to him by the Ado League of Friends.
