Benue State Deputy Governor, Benson Abounu



DEPUTY Governor of Benue State, Benson Abounu on Thursday said that ‘assumption of right’ was mainly responsible for the friction between the governors and governors.


Speaking to journalists after consulting with the Peoples Democratic Party State Working Committee on his governorship aspiration in 2023, Abounu said a deputy governor, “has no right whatsoever in the constitution.


While stating that all deputies are at the mercy of the governors, Abounu said that “any deputy governor that does not assume right will surely not have problem with his principal.”


He said, “The reason why some deputies fall out with their principals is because they assumed rights. Some deputy governors have the belief that they are being short-changed, they are not been given enough and  that they are not getting  what is due to them.


“But as deputy governor, you have no right, none whatsoever, because the constitution does not ascribe anything to the deputy governor.

“Only two things that are available to deputy governors are, in the event the governor goes on holiday and  ask the deputy  to act and the second is  in the event  the governor decides to give you any assignment to carry out. And if he (governor) decides not to assign any duty to you, has he committed any offense?”


He explained that Governor Ortom had given him the nod to consult with stakeholders to share his vision with them.
