He explained that the decision was made after taking into consideration, the numerous developmental strides undertaking by Hon. George Ali-the immediate past Executive Chairman of Otukpo LGA of Benue State.

Adikwu stressed that, “Aside his enviable leadership achievements achieved in Otukpo LGA,Hon.George Ali has been a staunch supporter of many Youth Initiatives in Benue State.”

He added that Ali has fostered a wonderful relationship with the people of the area and the state by extension thereby becoming the most qualified to lead the PDP in the state.

Chairman of the group therefore reiterated the support of the members for Hon. Ali citing his wonderful records as Chairman of Otukpo LGA of Benue state where his developmental strides were unbeatable.

“Furthermore, he is someone who believes strongly in the Youths of the state so much he supports different facets of youth initiative in the state,” he concluded.
