Benue State 2023 Governorship aspirant on the All Progressives Congress (APC) platform, Terwase Orbunde, has expressed readiness to participate in the forthcoming primaries coming up on Friday this week.

He spoke after successful participation in the governorship screening exercise of the party during the weekend at Fraser Suites, in Abuja.

The former Chief of Staff to the Governor of Benue state revealed that before the screening exercise he fulfilled all conditions prescribed in the Constitution of the party, its state and national secretariats which granted him the necessary clearance and waiver respectively, for participation in the primaries.

He expressed appreciation to the leaders of the party at the state and national levels as well as its officials at both levels for the warm reception they have accorded him and for giving him the opportunity to aspire for Benue State Governor on APC platform.

Orbunde appealed to leaders of the party and delegates to consider his political experience which included serving as member of the House of Representatives, Adviser to the Senate President, State Party official, local government chairman, State ALGON chairman, and Chief of Staff to the Governor which he said have given him cognate experience for the job, and give him the ticket.

He said he was bringing to the APC vast political experience as well as a massive support base across the state to bear on the positive fortunes of the party which can enable it to win the governorship and other elections in the state.
