Speaking Sunday in Abuja, the gubernatorial aspirant believed that, there was no need for any agitation as the current leadership of the party in Benue led by Comrade Abba Yaro has not only provided the needed leadership, but has done everything possible to win Benue for President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019.
Ogenyi said, “In Benue, we choose to adopt the current State Executive chairman of the ruling APC, Comrade Abba Yaro due to his antecedence, what we shall be doing on Saturday will be affirmation. This shows a high sense of internal democracy within the party.
“ Recall that, on April 16, 2014, Yaro was declared wanted by the PDP police in a ploy to scare him from the political scene, yet, he was resolute, he was determined severally as a result of his steadfastness in securing victory for the APC, he did not give up, he is just the best man for the job.

“ Yaro is free to support all candidates as the Party Chairman, I think that is what he is doing.
“Because Leadership belongs to God and he gives it to whoever he so wishes, that is why I am on the race for the governorship, I will encourage others to join us as well, as the saying goes, ‘ the more the merrier’, Ogenyi added.
