He stated that even if there were such routes gazetted, he would have de-gazetted them as the current population of the state had made such routes untenable.

Besides, the governor said that at the time such routes were contemplated in the 60s, the entire population of the country was about 40 million while the current population is about 200 million thereby foreclosing the possibility of such routes.He said the All Progressives Congress (APC)-controlled Federal Government failed to forestall attacks on the state by Jihadists who openly declared their conquest and occupation agenda on the state and thereafter failed to give the people justice when they demanded it.

According to him, this development, coupled with what he described as the deliberate neglect of Benue people by not giving them strategic positions in government, prompted him to seek an alternative platform on which to pursue his re-election. He, therefore, appealed to the people to vote for all the candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party.
