Perspective On The Benue Security Conundrum, By Thompson Udenwa

People seem not to have critically examined the issues and gotten the feel on the ground: While not exonerating the parties here, it is rooted basically in politics, and the competition for resources. Sen. Barnabas Gemade, the former party chairman of the PDP, Senator David Mark, and former Governor Gabriel Suswam all have connections to this.

I came from a poor family not privileged to have the right connection for people like me to secure a job after graduation.
