Labour Party candidate, Hembe blasts Benue Govt of accusing Fulanis of invading the state but still vote Fulani man as Presidential candidate

The Benue State governorship candidate of the Labour Party, Heman Hembe, has criticized the Peoples Democratic Party, the PDP-led government, for shouting at the Fulanis for invading the state and still proceeding to vote a Fulani man as its presidential candidate.

He stated this at the weekend during the flag-off of his campaign in Makurdi, the state capital. 

Hembe, representing Vandeikya/Konshisha federal constituency at the House of Representatives, attacked the PDP-led administration of the state over its alleged failed nature.

According to Hembe, the biggest problem in Benue is godfatherism, and Labour Party does have such a problem.

The governorship candidate said the Labour Party guaranteed better life for workers and the people in general.

“This generation will not deceive you, those candidates in the All Progressives Congress and the PDP are products of godfatherism and the biggest problem in Benue is godfatherism.

“Today, the same people who are shouting about the Fulanis, are the same people who voted Fulani as their party’s candidate.

“I and all of us on this stage today, are very opposed to anybody or person invading our land, we will not cede any inch of this land to anybody.

“Where there is war, there is development. In Borno State, the governor there has been fighting Boko Haram in the last six years. Borno is building schools, building bridges, our case cannot be different. Our pensioners cannot be different. Our pensioners cannot continue to go hungry and die everyday after serving the state meritoriously.

“The Labour Party that you see today is the party of the ordinary people, it is the party of the pensioners, party of the civil servants, party of the market women and traders. The party that takes pity in the ordinary people, the party that will bring you out of the situation where you are today,” Hembe stated.
