A businessman, consultant and frontline contestant for Benue State governorship race under the umbrella of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Surveyor, John Tondu, has bared his mind on the need to deliver good governance to Benue people if elected.
In a statement after obtaining the nomination form from wadata plaza , PDP national secretariat in Abuja, the former Commissioner for Lands and Survey, told Journalists that, ”Benue people deserves good governance, and they have seen that I can give them that good governance”.
He expresses discontent over the current situations where the government in Benue State was unable to pay salaries of civil servants for almost 12 months, even when it has incurred borrowing up to over 60billions of naira from commercial banks.
He debunked speculations that the incumbency factor would affect his victory, saying that Samuel Ortom’s recently defection to PDP cannot be a yardstick for gaining the governorship seat.
“I am confident that delegates from Benue State who are looking for good governance will not mind whether you are an incumbent or not. They will vote for the person that can deliver good governance to the people in 2019, and the person they have seen is no other but John Tondu,” he said.
“It is not about the amount of money in the account, Benue people are yearning for special candidate with quality to take them to the Promised Land.
“So, I am not worried that someone is an incumbent. I have confidence in myself even though I don’t have the money. The people believe in me, they have tested me and they can trust me”, he added.
According to him,’ the people of the state are looking for a candidate capable of providing good governance, and not a money bag with no clear agenda on how to pilot the affairs of the state.’
Stressing that, to checkmate the perennial farmers/herdsmen clashes, his administration will fully implement the state anti-grazing law.
He noted that the anti- grazing law is not an issue; the issue is implementation. The approach of the implementation is the issue in contention.
Promising never to repeal the anti- grazing law but can only apply workable approaches on its implementation, which will have positive impact on farmers, herdsmen and entire Nigerian populace.
