Speaker of the Benue State House of Assembly, Titus Uba, says no financial inducement will make the state lawmakers work
Speaker of the Benue State House of Assembly, Titus Uba, says no financial inducement will make the state lawmakers work against Governor Samuel Ortom or the state government.
Addressing newsmen in Makurdi, the state capital on Tuesday, the speaker added that the leadership would lift the suspension slammed on eight members if they showed remorse.
He said: “we are looking at how we can come together to save the soul of Benue State.”
Uba further assured that the lawmakers were working together in unity irrespective of political affiliations.
“The 22 members on my side are intact, and nothing on this earth is going to shake us.
“We are also still in talking terms with the other eight members, and some of them are already making advances to come back and join us, instead of taking us to the other side.
“But if you paint something black and you want to brighten it, you must use white paint to clean it,” he added.
