The APC in Benue Zone C recently witnessed the arrival of a young man called Philip Agbese into the party with the ambition of representing the Constituency at the Green Chamber of the National Assembly.
The self acclaimed philanthropist who is yet to say what he does for a living, has since his arrival into the Enone politics become the mastermind of politics of bitterness and blackmail in the constituency.
Philip Agbese who gave himself the title Okanga 1 of Agila Land in Benue state has on many occasions lied that he’s a British lawyer but unknown to his unsuspecting people, he has never been to the British law school before not to talk of having any certification of attendance as revealed by our independent investigation.
Further investigation about this self acclaimed British lawyer reveals that Philip Agbese has a gang of young yahoo boys around him who he uses as cover for his media business.
He is alleged to be a kingpin, notorious blackmailer, who is a specialist in mobilizing social media hoodlums to attack any government official who refuses to fall for his blackmail to pay him off.
One of his victims among many is the minister of Special Duties and Inter-governmental Affairs, Senator George Akume, the former governor of Benue state.
Recall that in 2013 Senator George Akume was notoriously blackmailed by Agbese who claimed that Akume had forged his academic credentials and used it to secure the governorship position in Benue and also used same forged credentials to win the election that brought him to the Senate.
However, the former governor was able to clear his name after he tendered copies of his original credentials, which were attached to his statement of defense, in the suit filed by Philip Agbese who accused Akume of forging his certificate hence unqualified to stand for an election.
Former deputy governor, Chief Steven Lawani was not left out of Agbese’s blackmail game as he did all to blackmail him before his principal Gabriel Suswam the former governor of Benue state.
Amazingly, today Agbese is all out again with his blackmail game, all in a bid to get the Enone house of Rep ticket of the APC to which the leaders of the party and delegates have outrightly rejected him even before the party primaries .
Information available to us says that, Agbese whose frivolous attempt to blackmail Akume all to destroy his political career has also put plans in place to drag the minister should he not get the party ticket in few days as the party is set to go into the primaries.
Finally, we wish to thank our leader and father, senator George Akume, minister of Special Duties and Inter-governmental Affairs for building a very strong leadership in the APC family in zone c and Benue at large.
The ENONE APC YOUTH NETWORK are determined to deliver the APC in all possible positions in the 2023 elections.
Thank you and God bless.
