Governor Sule Receives Support to Serve a Second Term

Governor Abdullahi Sule has received the support of the Tiv Development Association, a cultural organisation in Nasarawa State, to serve a second term.

The President of TIDA, Peter Ahemba, stated during the endorsement event on Thursday at the Government House in Lafia that the governor’s efforts to address issues of insecurity in the state were the reason for the endorsement.

He praised the governor for addressing the recent farmers/herders problem, which resulted in the eviction of many Tiv farmers in the state’s southern region

He said, “Your Excellency Sir, members of the Tiv Community under the umbrella of the Tiv Development Association are here before you today to register our gratitude for the demonstrated commitment of your government in dealing decisively with security threats and ensuring that our people, who were displaced by herders’ attacks in the southern part of the state are returned to their places of abode to continue with their farming activities.

“Indeed, your efforts have yielded the desired results, as evident in the relative peace being enjoyed in our communities and the bumper harvest that has continued to be recorded by our farmers.

“We wish to reaffirm our total loyalty and support to the industrialisation agenda of your government which has brought about an influx of investors into the State.

“The transformative programmes of your government in virtually all sectors of the economy and the huge investment in peace and security of the state have continued to endear you to the Tiv people, who are the major beneficiaries. Sir, we want to use this opportunity to assure you of our support for your re-election bid in 2023 and beyond.”

Governor Abdullahi Sule thanked TIDA for the endorsement on his behalf and added that he had been meeting with security agencies to prevent any breach of law and order while working to bring peace to the state’s 13 Local Government Areas.

“We are providing security for Tiv communities in the state to protect you all from attacks that had disrupted your farming activities. The Tiv people of Nasarawa state had gone through tough times in the past, and I would not want to see that happen again.

“I am happy that most of the Tiv farmers who were displaced during the recent crisis have all gone back to their communities, and they are all enjoying a peaceful atmosphere. I want to appeal to everyone to forgive ourselves where we have gone wrong and live together as one people,” the governor added.
