The Peoples Democratic Party’s Senatorial Candidate for Benue South, Abba Moro, has criticised the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC for promising Nigerians change but ended up bringing pains and hardship to the people.

Mr Moro, who stated this on Tuesday during the inauguration of his ward-to-ward campaign in Otukpo Local Government Area of the state, urged the people to vote for all the candidates of the PDP in the 2019 elections.

“The All Progressives Congress promised Nigerians change but ended up in bringing pain and hardship to Nigerians,” he said.

The former Minister of Interior challenged his opponents to name projects they attracted to Benue South while they were in power.

He added, “Many people will come here to seek your votes. They will call us names, they would say unprintable things against my person but we should not hesitate to ask them to name projects they were able to bring to our community while they were in power.

“We have a candidate who was a deputy governor for eight years. We have a candidate who was a Permanent Secretary for years. Kindly tell them to name people they empowered or projects they were able to put up in our land.

The former chairman of Okpokwu Local Government Area said he was able to create employment opportunities for people from Benue South as Minister of Interior under the last administration.

“Some of you can attest to the fact that I helped many of our sons and daughters, especially the youth while serving as a minister.

“Send me to Abuja and you shall see the outcome,” Moro said.

The PDP candidate for Otukpo/Ohimini Federal Constituency, Johnson Ahubi, warned the people of Benue South against wasting their votes on other candidates.
