“IGEDE SENATE PROJECT;
(Making a case for BOJACO) .
— Senator Abba Moro as a symbol of injustice , discrimination and marginalization .
— Igede people celebrating mediocrity in Abba Moro .
— A call to emancipate ourselves from mental slavery .
“Idoma, a people and language of the Volta Niger family including Igede, Alago, Agatu, Upia, Ete, Etulo and Yala found in Benue , Nassarawa , Kogi and Cross River states . Certainly , this is not a claimed relationship as argued by some Idoma Authors as similarities in cultures and norms have bounded Igede and Idoma ( Akpotos) together for decades . The unity was nurtured with love , hospitality and mutual respect . It gave birth to an Igede becoming Och’Idoma ( HRH Ajine Okpabi ) for decades . The sharing became Idoma / Igede as enshrined in the Benue State Chieftaincy laws . The same give and take fair sharing ushered Chief J C Obande from Ado into the Northern House of Assembly as the unity breed Chief Oga Idikwu from Igede to replace him ( J C Obande ) at the Northern House of Assembly without bitterness and rancour .
“Affectionately , Chief John Edo ( Late) from Oju – Igede led the National Party of Nigeria ( NPN) to push Chief Ogiri Adejo Andrew ( LLB Law) from Adoka Otukpo to the Senate in 1979 . While, Senator Okpe Godwin Idoko ( BA) from Oliagbenue Okpoga , Okpokwu LGA to take over the baton until 1984 . In 1991 , under the Social Democratic Party ( SDP ) , Senator Ameh Ebute ( LLB Law ) stepped in and held sway as Senate President in 1993 .

“In the spirit of Idoma/Igede fraternity , Chief R G Ade from Opiem Owo , Igede mustered the groups that gave Brig.Gen . David Mark ( Rtd) a resounding reunion from exile and ushered him into the PDP where he ( Mark) effortlessly bagged the Senate seat that he held tenaciously for 20yrs undermining the Igede / Idoma political accord . As if this is not enough discrimination and marginalization of Igede people , Abba Moro bouncing from a national stigmatized immigration recruitment exercise was shielded with the Senate seat in 2019 . For decades , Idoma Senate seat is revolving between Otukpo and Okpokwu LGA . And I reasoned why Igede people are celebrating mediocrity in Abba Moro .
“Igede people should emancipate themselves from mental slavery and reawaken the brotherly love with synergy among the Agatu , Agila , Upia , Ogbadibo to wrestle the Senate seat from Okpokwu/ Otukpo dominance in 2023 . Marginalization breeds conflicts . Support Barr Jacob Ajene.

Comments on “Why Igede Should Choose Bojaco instead of Abba Moro in 2023”
Comrade Otor Jay can’t be more succinct in his analysis of the injustice done to the Igede people of the Benue South Senatorial district of which they rightly belong. It is only fair that the Igede people be allowed the honour of the Senate seat now come 2023 by the rest of their neighbours in the zone. And I have no iota of doubt in my mind that Barr Obande Ajene symbolises a perfect qualification for this Senate seat and as such should be supported by not just every rational minded Igede son and daughter, but also the rest of Idoma people in the zone for purpose of equity.
Now is the time,and this time ought to be respected by all.
Iam humbled by your rare magnanimity , together we shall do better to sensitize our people to deviate from being hoodwinked by inferiority complex . BOJACO win at the APC primary and go ahead to defeat Abba Moro if PDP presents the later .
We really appeal to senator. Patrick Abba Moro, let him give us this chance, igede people are not a slavery. Be us minority is that we don’t know a meaningful things of life.
Let idoma give us the chance to benefit federal government and state government like others.
My igede people, let’s support Our son, Barr. Obende Jacob Ajene.
This is an herculean task, but, it is achievable with the right channel which involves consultants of the Igede people to their Idoma brothers.
And anything short of this will be a total waste of time and resources that should have been channel into other endeavors to give humanity a face-lift in Igede land.
