The people of Benue South senatorial district have taken their quest for the number one position in the State a step further by launching a demonstration on the Street of Makurdi, the State capital.
The people took their demand to the State Governor, Samuel Ortom.
This comes as the jostle for positions in the 2023 general election begins to gather momentum.
In their numbers, both old and young, the pressure group took their equality campaign through the streets of the State capital to the Government house.
They proceeded to the IBB Square, where they again made their strong point of readiness to occupy the Government house come 2023.
Its a general appeal to the Tiv majority, which comprises the northwest and east in the spirit of equity and fairness to support a minority rule.
National Coordinator Benue rebirth movement Monday Morgan and other critical stakeholders who presented their demands said one tribe should not be allowed to rule in perpetuity.
“Let power rotate in the spirit of equity and fairness.
“The number two position in the State is seemingly the exclusive reserve of the people of the Benue south senatorial district since the return of democracy with the Tiv majority holding sway.
“As the second-largest tribe in the State, the Idoma people and also the Igede tribe who are yet to enjoy the luxury of being the first citizen in State feel the time has come for residents to have a rethink,” Morgan said.
