He stated that Agbese, who represents Ado/Okpokwu/Ogbadibo Federal Constituency of Benue State, has represented his people through sponsorship of critical motions and bills.

According to him Agbese ‘has been doing his primary function, which of course, is to make laws, to oversight the executive, and to also represent the interest of his people at the federal level.

But I feel that engaging him at the level of party will also bring a reminder to how we started and where we are going. So that is primarily the essence of my visit”.

Agada, while speaking on the Benue APC, said the party under his watch, said the ruling regained control of Benue politics in the last general election.

“We have 21 House of Assembly Members, including the recent rerun state Assembly that was done in Guma 1 constituency, state constituency. So we have been doing very well as a party.”
