You're a clowning goat. So because of his party his candidacy should not be supported when both parties are guilty of incompetence. Again you are a clowning goat. Only Eboes think that way. What has the party your region has been supporting since 1999 done for your region? Absolutely nothing.

You're simply daft. And you are also a tribal bigot



If you are wise enough you will understand that currently PDP and APC are the two major political parties in Nigeria which have had to recycled the same group of people that have kept Nigeria in this state of shame



And the worst of it all is that the oldies keep grooming young parasitic politicians that will take over from them in looting this country dry...

Alia is popular, but I'm still skeptical of his chances to even clinch APC's ticket. I don't understand Akume's disposition towards him yet. In addition, with Ortom's financial war chest, his stranglehold on the state's resources, cornering salaries and pensions, and placing his brothers and sisters in the most important departments and ministries in the state, I'm not sure how APC would finance their campaign well enough to neutralise Ortom's spending.

I remember this man growing up in Makurdi in the 90s. He was our assistant parish priest at St. Theresa's Catholic church, he was known for his ability to cast out demons and prophesy. More like the "Fr. Mbaka" of Benue.
