The Benue State governorship hopeful under the platform of the All progressive Congress (APC) ahead of 2023 general election, ESV. Godwin Ityoachimin has vowed to revived what he described as the lost glory of Benue State, the food basket of the nation, if given the mandate to serve the state as the Executive Governor in 2023.

Ityoachimin made this declaration at the occasion of the unveiling of his campaign office in Makurdi, the Benue State capital.

He stated that his stewardship ambition was to reverse the ugly trends and the myriad socio economic and political challenges in the state to better the lives of citizens and everyone residing in the state.

“I want to use this opportunity to assure you that if am given the mandate, the dignity of the people will be restored, payment of salaries and pension will be guaranteed, the perpetual hardship impose on people, poverty and ignorance would also vanished.

“My leadership shall tackle major problems preventing development in the state. Already we have clearly mapped up thematic areas of intervention with clear action points as regards the principle of our government if elected in 2023”. He stated.

Godwin who maintained that, the numerous challenges confronting the state required serious minded leadership, noted that he was ready for the task as his vision and mission for a greater Benue was very clear.

He urged men, women, youths and political stakeholders to support his Fresh Voice Project to save the state from the eminent collapse.

Also speaking at the occasion, an APC chieftain from Gboko/Tarkaa Federal Constituency, Engr. Abraham Aku, who said he had known the person of Godwin Ityoachimin for over twenty years, applauded his leadership prowess, pointing out that he was worthy to be elected as the governor of Benue State.

In his comment, Senator, Dr. Jacob Tilley Gyado, who was represented by former chairman of Vandeikya LGA in Benue State, Hon. Denis Akura said, the current situation in the state in which stakeholders designed and impose candidates who eventually cause hardship, poverty and other challenges on the people in the state would soon become a thing of the past.

Earlier in their separate good will massages at the event, chairman APC Zone A, Hon. Vincent Uji, chairman Zone B, Chief Akange Audu and the representative of Zone C Alh. Abubakar Usman all pointed out that, the historical background of the political leadership in Benue State had indicated clearly that governor’s who made the difference were originated from the civil service and therefore, Godwin Ityoachimin who is also coming from the civil service would be the right candidate for the state.

The campaign office of ESV Godwin Tyoachimin which is tagged ” The Fresh Voice For A Greater Benue”. was commissioned on the 3rd November, 2021 by the former Benue State first Lady, Mrs. Regina Akume.

The event was graced by many APC chieftains, party supporters, friends, political stakeholders, women and youths as well as other APC wellwishers across the length and breadth of the state.
