Some stakeholders from the Masev, Ihyarev and Nongov Development Association, MINDA in Benue State, on Monday, presented an expression of intent and nomination forms for the Senate to Governor Samuel Ortom.
The development is in continuation of calls for him to contest the Benue North-West Senatorial seat in the 2023 general elections.
It was learnt that the Secretary of the MINDA PDP Elders Forum, Charles Torbunde, led other members of the forum cutting across Guma, Makurdi, Gwer-East and Gwer-West to make the presentation.
Receiving the forms, Governor Ortom said he was humbled by the honour done him.
He said the MINDA elders led him to solicit the support of Jemgbagh for the Senate aspiration.
Governor Ortom pledged to represent the people well and speak for them without fear or favour, stressing that he will represent the interest of his constituents.
