I Have No Grudge Against Hembe, Says Mato
Member of the House of Representatives representing Vandeikya/Konshisha Federal Constituency of Benue State, Hon. Mrs. Dorothy Mato, has said that she has no grudge against Mr. Herman Hembe, who was sacked by the Supreme Court for.
In an interview with The New Telegraph, she said, “Since I recovered my mandate from Hembe, I have not set my eyes on him. I do not have anything against him. It was just my mandate that was the issue. I hold no grudge against him. He took what rightly belonged to me and I went through courts to seek justice. Now, I have gotten my mandate and, therefore, have no reason whatsoever to keep malice or begrudge him. He is my son; he is my younger brother and we were only competitors in a game of politics.”
In a separate statement issued by her media aide, Hon Mato urged all her supporters to promote peace and shun violence. They should learn to love one another because love is all we need to live together in our world of diversity.
“We may explore our world for riches and treasure, we may irrigate the world with rivers of pleasure but without love of no measure, our solutions will bring more problems, our encouragement, more frustrations and our hope, more deprivation.
“Let us learn how to love one another and promote peace because it is
what keeps us together in troubles and trials. In times when we don’t
seem to agree with one another, when opinions contrast and choices
differ, love and peace rain down and bring us together to uphold the
values that foster development”. She said.
