Benue Rebirth Movement Urges Minorities to Rally Behind SGF Akume and President Tinubu
The Benue Rebirth Movement (BRM) calls on minorities in Nigeria to unite under the leadership of Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Senator George Akume, and President Bola Ahmed Tinubu. BRM highlights the need for justice and equity in political appointments, urging the submission of North Central state governors to SGF Akume.

The Benue Rebirth Movement (BRM) has recently made a strong appeal to minorities across Nigeria, urging them to rally behind Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Senator George Akume, and President Bola Ahmed Tinubu. During a press conference held in Makurdi, the group emphasized the importance of unity and loyalty among minorities, highlighting the significance of political representation for marginalized communities.

BRM specifically directed its message to governors in the North Central states and other minority states, urging them to submit to the leadership of SGF Akume. The group believes that by aligning with Akume, the entire middle belt region can unite and demonstrate their unwavering support for President Tinubu.

One of the main grievances expressed by BRM was the appointment of the Secretary to the Benue State Government (SSG) to someone from outside the designated zone. The group appealed for justice and equity, requesting that the SSG position and the ministerial slot allocated to Benue state should be given to individuals from Benue South senatorial district (Zone C) of the state.

Atsar Baba Gundu, a prominent member of the BRM Youth Wing, expressed disappointment in the failure to honor the demands for fair representation. Gundu claimed that the previous denial of Zone C candidates for key positions sent a concerning message that lacks inclusivity and equitable distribution of power.

Gundu further highlighted the issue of the upcoming ministerial appointment, cautioning against potential ethnic tensions arising from the choice of a candidate. He stressed the need for the Minister from Benue state to be selected from Zone C, irrespective of religion, age, or gender, in order to foster peace and unity.

The BRM Youth Wing urged the Benue state Governor to collaborate with Senator George Akume, a leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), to identify a suitable candidate from Zone C for the ministerial position. The group also called for the submission and loyalty of all North Central governors to SGF Akume, facilitating stronger ties between the middle belt region and President Tinubu.

The primary motivation behind BRM's plea is to address the prevailing crises of insecurity in the middle belt region, allowing people to safely return to their farms and ancestral lands. The group considers the connection of Benue State to the central power hub as an opportunity to pursue inclusiveness in governance and align the state with the leadership at the center.

As the call for unity and justice reverberates across Benue state and beyond, it remains to be seen how minorities will respond and whether political appointments will reflect the aspirations of marginalized communities.
