The Commissioner for Finance in Benue, Dr David Olofu says that the Idoma nation has a good chance of producing a governor for the North-Central state in 2023.

Olofu who stated this while interacting with newsmen on Sunday in Makurdi, said the Idoma, with the second largest number of people in the state after the Tiv, have never produced a governor since the state was created out of the then Benue Plateau State in 1967.

The position has been an exclusive preserve of the Tiv group that constitutes the majority.

But the commissioner told newsmen that with the nomination of Mr. Benson Abounu as Idoma’s consensus candidate in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the longtime dream was appearing possible.

He described as unfounded and mischievous, the news making the rounds that he was working toward becoming the deputy governor as against the governorship aspiration of the Idoma people.
