The Abuja chapter of Jemgbagh Development Association in Benue State has congratulated Chief Titus Zam, Hon. Sekav and Hon. Mrs. Regina Akume on their victories at the last weekend’s elections to represent Gboko/Tarkaa and Buruku in the Senate and House of Representatives respectively.


In a statement signed by the president, Abor Felix Terver, and Secretary, Thomas Iangen, the association said it believes in oneness, unity of purpose, progress and development of Jemgbagh as a community which is non-negotiable, therefore, called those who lost to accept defeat and join the winners to  build the Benue State of their dreams.


Congratulating the winners, the association thanked the entire Jemgbagh community for coming out to massively cast their votes to choose  who would represent them.


“In any given election, they shall be a loser, when good people refuse to exercise their civic responsibility, foolish people elect leaders who formulate policies that affect the masses in negative manner.


“The present administration has done its best, and we have every reason to believe that its policies are not friendly to Jemgbagh as a community. We have seen betrayals from all levels, even the government’s most ardent supporters. It is pertinent to mention that the government is narcissistic, and cares only about a few.


“The government’s policy of not paying salaries and pensions has been particularly hard on Jemgbagh people and Benue State at large.


“Benue State have no industries, therefore, the good people of Benue State depend on government, but the non-payment of salaries and pensions has aggravated the level of poverty in our communities and Benue as a whole.


“To some point, the government viewed Jemgbagh as her as  an enemy.

For the state government stamping it’s feet to oppose/challenge the siting of a Federal Polytechnic at Wannune and further refusing to issue the Certificate of Occupancy for the polytechnic till date is a clear demonstration of hatred.


“The deliberately attacked on our leaders left a sore test in the mouth. But for the sake of posterity, we are matching towards 06/12/2023 where it will be become history on the pages of papers. Thank you once more for exercising your franchise in the right direction,” the association said.


They lamented the sale of state government’s industries, while according to them, government failed to site any development project in Jemgbagh which comprises of Gboko, Buruku, and Tarka, despite numerous  MoUs signed to create the impression that the government was  industrialising Benue.
