A former Speaker , Benue House of Assembly , Mr . Stephen Tsav , has defected from the Peoples Democratic Party to the All Progressive Congress.Tsav , who announced his defection in Guma , said that he was defecting “ after collecting financial inducement aimed at stopping me from defecting . ”

He , however , did not state who offered the said financial inducement .

In a speech at the occasion, Senator George Akume accused Governor Samuel Ortom of treating people displaced by the recent violence “ very poorly, ” alleging that Internally Displaced Persons fared better in neighbouring Nasarawa State.

In his remarks , the APC governorship candidate in the state , Mr . Emmanuel Jime , challenged Ortom to a public debate on how to deliver good governance and improve security in Benue .

Jime promised to serve a single term of four years , but would replicate the development strides of the first civilian governor of the state , late Mr . Aper Aku , within that period .

He appealed to Benue people to collect their Permanent Voter Cards to enable them decide the leaders that could best protect their interests .
