Senator Barnabas Gemade (APC-Benue North East) has disclosed that he would search reelection to the Upper Legislative chambers within the 2019 normal election.
Speaking in Makurdi, the lawmaker dismissed insinuations that the ticket had been zoned to the Kwande axis of his constituency.
Gemade stated: “It has at all times been the flip of Kwande since I began contesting election to the Senate. I began contesting election to the senate from 2007 which I misplaced. I on the time contested with a candidate from Kwande. I Contested in 2011 which I received and I contested in 2015 and I received.
“At no time did my election go opposed. And there was no time throughout these elections that no Kwande individual contested. So, no one can come and selected a explicit time and say that is our time. It has at all times been their flip similar to it has alway been different individuals’s flip.
“If it isn’t your flip you sit down and permit those that it’s their flip to go, however they’ve at all times contested. So it has at all times been Kwande’s flip.
“I am contesting and my score card is so large and convincing enough for my people to want me back at the senate. For example in my first tenure I delivered over 140 projects in my constituency, apart from over 2,000 items I distributed and lots more.”
