An aspirant for Benue Zone C Senatorial District in the 2015 election, Comrade Dan Onjeh, has hinted he will be contesting in 2019 for the same seat.

This followed his appointment of a veteran broadcaster, Daniel Ekah, as his media Director.

Onjeh said the veteran journalist will coordinate his entire media team.

Onjeh, who is currently the Board Chairman of Project Development Institute, PRODA, he said he will soon make his intention known officially.

While probing further into why he chose a media director, Onjeh said, ”I have fewer comments for now. All I have to say is that I will be disclosing my intention anytime soon.

“The truth is that I have made Ekah my media coordinator, and you will know my reason very soon,” he said.

Ekah is the Editor-in-Chief of Powersteering magazine and currently Managing Editor National, Accord Newspaper.

Recall that the former NANS president had contested for the same position on 2 different occasions and had been narrowly defeated on both occasions by the incumbent Senator., David Mark.

Onjeh is believed to have a good relationship with former Edo State Governor, Adams Osiomhole who has been penned down as the next Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
