From ROSE EJEMBI, Makurdi.
Former Minister of State for Education, Prof. Jerry Agada has restated his loyalty to his boss, Senator David Mark stressing that he is and would remain his boss for life.
Agada who stated this in a chat with newsmen in Makurdi yesterday said his defection from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) does not mean that he had dumped Senator Mark.
He noted that his defection from the PDP was occasioned by the decision of his people of Orokam in Ogbadibo Local Government area to remain in the main stream politics adding
“My defecting from a party does not mean dumping Mark. I am the first permanent Secretary and first Minister to come from Orokam after which no other person has been appointed from that area to fill these posts. That was why my people decided I defect to the ruling party to attract such democracy dividend to the area.”
The former Education Minister who insisted that the David Mark did well for the Idoma people in his 16 years at the Senate however called on people of Benue South Senatorial District to vote according to their conscience in the Saturday’s rerun election.
