The statement reads, “He is a man of the people, a politician who knows his worth and friendly to everyone across the country.

“Akume, who started his career as a civil servant a two-term Governor of Benue State, a two-term Senator, and now Minister is the right candidate to lead the APC to its desired position of power.
