Hwande gets endorsement from Tiv union, SDP LG excos
The entire excos and members of the Tiv Progressive Union today endorsed Dr Stephen Terungwa Hwande, governorship candidate of the SDP, as their sole candidate for 2019 general election.
TPU spokesman, Mr Damkor Anwange, who said this in Mkovu Jagela stated that the reasons for the endorsement of union are numerous.
His words: “Dr Hwande is a man of the people who believes in the welfare of everyone. If by any chance you meet him, you will discover that he is not just contesting but he is ready for the job.
“Without any political appointments, he had managed to have seven companies within Benue state, and these companies have helped to reduce unemployment rate in the society.
“Dr Hwande has a work force of over 300 staff who receive monthly allowances and salaries from him, and this makes us to believe that he will use his office as governor, if elected, to totally eradicate poverty and unemployment.
“Dr Hwande has no problem with anybody, in the past and presently even at the time they were in search for good candidate in MINDA axis”
The Tiv Union however urged all the indigence of Benue state to vote for him so he can effect good governance in 2019.
