Senator Barnabas Gemade has appointed Benue State Governor Gabriel Suswam’s man, Mr Mike Koundon, as the head of his campaign team.
Gemade is seeking re-election into the Senate on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Koundon hails from Logo Local Government Area, same as Suswam.
This appointment is said to have caused some concern as he is a former chairman of the council and has a cordial relationship with the governor.
Suswam is from Gaambetiev and Koundon, Ugondo.
Gemade inaugurated his campaign team at the weekend at his G.R.A. home in Gboko.
He urged members of the team not to be afraid of being molested or intimidated by his opponents, and to shun character assassination.
Gemade said he has represented the people of Benue North East well and deserves another term.
Kondoun assured Gemade that the team would deliver on its mandate.
