DR. HWANDE STEPHEN TERUNGWA THE PHILANTHROPIST | By: Apaa Maaki Moses
Dr. Terungwa Stephen Hwande, a philanthropist who over the years, sought to develop humanity through education, medical care, infrastructure development and social services as evidently exhibited in #AGASHA, where he build (VISION HOSPITAL) and #MAKURDI (FIRST FERTILITY HOSPITAL) respectively for community service. His free medical outreach in the state over the years has giving hope for life to pensioners, the less privileged and many other beneficiaries too numerous to mention.
In Education, Dr. Stephen Hwande has contributed greatly in the overall development of Minda Students by giving them scholarship to aid their education. He is an employer of labour and has continue to excel by providing jobs for the teeming unemployed Benue youths in his establishment KH&T Farms which deals with Poultry, Piggery, Fishery, Garri and Rice processing factories with over 300 Staff.
His philanthropy has put him kilometers ahead of his rivals and earn him two chieftaincy titles in TIV and IDOMA land as TSAR U NONGOV. meaning: the bridge through good things can access the NONGOV people. Also in IDOMA land as O’ YAMEE K OKPAFIE , meaning: He who has finished all.
Dr. Hwande is a community friendly person who is ever ready to sacrifice his personal comfort for the common good of his people in a distressed society where good has been subverted by tiny tribe of self seeking elites.
A philanthropist of Hwande’s stature if given the mandate to rule, he will galvanize Benue and mobilize it’s people into life saving programs at the grass roots.
We are convinced he will judiciously deploy the immense resources of the State to uplift the poor man, woman and child.
He has always lived and identified with the people and is aware of the hemorrhaging conditions of the State, it’s decaying infrastructure, it’s underdevelopment, the pervasive hunger, the hopelessness and the plunder of its resources and opportunities even by its own sons and daughters.
The bleeding must stop, the decay must cease, the underdevelopment must be arrested, the hunger and hopelessness must be gone and the plunder of resources and opportunities halted.
Benue must be first In Nigeria. There must be smiles on plenty faces and satisfaction in the land of promise. We believe Dr. Hwande has the energy and clarity to co-ordinate the re-birth of our dream Benue State.
We appeal to the political class and all patriotic citizens of the state give Dr. Hwande Terungwa Stephen the mandate to re-engineer the re-birth of Benue State.
We believe that Hwande is the idea whose time has come.
