On behalf of the Sam Ode Campaign Organization, I wish to extend my sincerest congratulations to Very Revd. Fr. Dr. Hyacinth Iormem Alia on his successful outing at the just concluded governorship primary election of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Benue State and subsequent nomination as the candidate of our great Party.

This victory clearly acknowledges your momentous acceptability by members of the APC family, as well as the trust and confidence of the people of Benue in your ability to salvage the state.

I wish to state here that I, Hon. Barr. Sam Ode, mni, has accepted the result of the APC Governorship Primary Election in the state as officially announced by the Governorship Primary Election Committee. I therefore align myself with your decisive and resounding victory. I am confident that the emergence of Very Revd. Fr. Dr. Hyacinth Alia as the candidate of our great party will rekindle the hope of the common man in the Benue Project and encourage Benue voters to overwhelmingly elect the candidate of the APC as the next Governor of the state come 2023.

I also wish to salute all my former colleagues and co-contestants in the just concluded Governorship Primary Election. Ours was a hard-fought campaign free of resentment and animosity, and we will all fight together to ensure victory for our party and Governorship Candidate in 2023. No system in the world is perfect and, therefore, whatever may be the lapses, they cannot possibly obliterate the main menu, which is the emergence of a popular candidate and, of course, substantial compliance with the relevant extant laws and regulations.

Meanwhile, I deeply appreciate all members, supporters, friends, and well-wishers of the Sam Ode Gubernatorial Campaign Organization across the 23 local government areas of the state and beyond, for their conviction, bravery, and commitment. Your personal sacrifices and contributions to the Benue Unity Project, which can’t be measured, are very much appreciated and worthy of praise.

Finally, as we move into the next segment of the campaign, we ought to imbibe unity of purpose and determination so as to forestall the challenges of the general election in 2023. I, therefore, urge the Benue APC family to close ranks and work together as a formidable team to be able to democratically oust the insensitive and incompetent PDP-led administration in the state.

Hon. Barr. Sam Ode, mni
