I’ll Establish Orange Processing Factory in Ushongo to Check Wastages – Uba


Governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Benue state, Mr Titus Uba, has pledged to establish an orange processing factory in Ushongo Local Government Area of the state in order to check wastages of the produce in the area.

Uba, who is the Speaker of the Benue State House of Assembly, told Ushongo people that he had worked with many orange companies in the country and having known their peculiar problem of wasted oranges in their communities, he would provide succour to them in that regard if he becomes the governor of the state in the 2023 election.

The governorship hopeful, who was on a campaign tour of the area, further explained that he will establish orange companies where no wastage would be recorded in the state while orange farmers would harvest value for their produce.


He urged Ushongo people to continue to support Senator Gabriel Suswam at the National Assembly so that he will continue to attract more democracy dividends to the constituency. He also commended Governor Samuel Ortom and Senator Suswam for their pragmatic leadership disposition by presenting him before the Ushongo people to see how healthy and fit he is to rule the state.

In his remarks, Benue State Governor, Ortom, charged the people of Ushongo to reject the APC and their candidates who are always bent on misinforming the general public that the Tiv people are killing themselves and not Fulani herdsmen.

Governor Ortom also called on the people to reject APC because of their bad intention to align with their collaborators in the state to take over Benue land if they return power in the forthcoming general elections.

Ushongo people, the governor noted are known for PDP when they were having one constituency and now that they are having Mata and Mbagwa constituencies and will wax stronger to ensure that Uba and all PDP candidates comes out victorious in the general election.

The Governor stated that his administration has prioritised the security of Benue citizens which the Ushongo people are not exception as manifested in the fight against kidnapping and other forms of criminality in their area.

Earlier, the Senator representing Benue North East Senatorial District, Suswam, described Ushongo as his home and promised not to abandon them.

Senator Suswam reminded Ushongo people that it was his effective representation at the National Assembly with their son, Bob Tyough, member, House of Representatives for Ushongo constituency capped with the unending support from Governor Samuel Ortom that led to the restoration of Mata constituency which was scrapped over the years.

He implored the youths that they are leaders of tomorrow who would take over from them after retirement from partisan politics and should not in any way accept the Muslim -Muslim ticket by the ruling APC that has perpetrated hardship on every Nigerian with their hidden agenda.
