EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: My Benue rebirth agenda -Clement Otis Enenche, Gubernatorial Aspirant
The clamour for the recruitment of the younger generation into leadership positions has continued to motivate capable youths to indicate their interests in elective offices across the country.
In the case of Benue State, it is not just about the youth taking over power, but the pervasive clamor for fresh ideas and thinkings to be injected into a progressively weak system, which has led the state into difficult times recently.
This situation has become an opportunity for Mr Enenche Clement Otis, a young and successful businessman, who believes he is visionary enough and possesses the capacity to become the next Governor of Benue State, to throw his hat in the ring.
Speaking during an exclusive interview with TheNigerian’s Lawrence Audu in Makurdi, he bares his mind on his ambition and sundry issues affecting his home state.
TNN: What would you like our audience and teaming supporters to know about you?
Enenche: I would say that I am a young Benue man with good family values and a heritage of service to humanity. I am also a cosmopolitan Nigerian, who wants to leverage on the opportunity of knowledge and exposure to drive productive activities, generate employment and create opportunities for socio-economic networks and macroeconomic growth.
TNN: What informed your decision to seek election as Executive Governor of Benue State?
Enenche: My decision to be Governor is borne out of inherent leadership qualities and available leverages to turn around Benue state, via carefully thought out public- private partnerships and strategic policies that will engender value chain creations and spur sustainable agribusiness for rural development.
Secondly, I do strongly believe that the global clamour for young men and women to drive governance amidst the years long leadership deficit in Africa is now ripe for implementation. There can never be a more appropriate time and situation.
