The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has assured the people of Benue State that peace will return to their state if elected president.

Speaking during the presidential campaign rally in Benue state, Atiku said he would bring insecurity to an end and ensure that there is peaceful co-existence between Fulani and Tiv communities in the state.

Atiku promised to reinforce Benue’s status as the food basket of the nation.

“The umbrella of Tiv people all over the world, I promise you, if you elect me as your president, just like I did in 2001 when I came to Benue and made the Fulanis sign a peace accord with their brothers Tivs, I will come and make sure peace returns to Benue State.”


“Benue State is the food basket of this country; today, our farmers in Benue do not go to the farm again because of insecurity. I will make sure security returns to Benue State.”

“Let me also assure you that the infrastructural deficit you are facing in this state in terms of your connectivity with other neighboring states will be a thing of the past because we are going to make sure that we vote funding for the development of roads and railways to make sure that our transportation system is once again working.”

According to Atiku, Benue has been a gateway state between the far north and the south. This, he said, is why there is a railway line that runs through the state, although it is not functional.

“I promise you that when you elect a PDP government, we shall reopen the railway lines.”

“Let me again reassure you that the closure of our universities because of the non-payment of salaries to the members of staff will be a thing of the past.”

“I have a private university, and we have never gone on strike for one day, so if a private university cannot go on strike for one day, why should the public university? I promise you ASUU will not go on strike, because we will pay them and fund the education sector adequately.”
