Reports reaching us at this moment indicate high level politicking and last minute intrigues concerning the choice of a gubernatorial aspirant for the APC. After long negotiations and deliberations for the emergence of a consensus candidate failed, the candidates all chose to go to the ballot.
the race seems to have been narrowed to a three-horse race between: Arch Asema. Achado, Hon Emmanuel Jime and Hon. Adanyi. Hon. Jime is rumoured to be the candidate from the Presidency while Hon. Adanyi is the beloved candidate of Sen. George Akume; who is the godfather of the APC in Benue State.
Impeccable sources have revealed that Sen. Akume favors a candidate from the Ihyarev axis, effectively ruling Arch. Asema Achado out. It is believed that Sen Akume is trying to appease the Ihyarev who have sufficient numbers to vote re-elect him in the Zone B senatorial elections.The primaries have been moved to tomorrow due to logistics and intra-party intrigues.
While we await the unfolding events in the next twenty four hours, it is our desire to see that the best man emerge.
