Fiction: Dr. Nentawe is Lalong’s anointed candidate.
●FACT: There is no record or proof anywhere to show when or where Governor Lalong asked either his cabinet or party officials to ditch other aspirants in favour of Dr. Nentawe. Perhaps, the Governor, just like any other indigene that means well for Plateau is fascinated and attracted to the credentials and track records of Dr. Nentawe vis-a-vis his ACEES agenda for securing, uniting and prospering Plateau State.
Fiction: Dr. Nentawe has not properly resigned his appointment as INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner in Benue State and therefore stands to be disqualified if given the party ticket.

●FACT: Dr. Nentawe has made history as the only REC to conduct the freest, fairest and most credible elections in Benue State where candidates were voted by the electorates based on their credibility and about 5 political parties won election in the state. The 2019 election will go down in history also as the most violent-free in the state because not a single life was lost, unlike previous elections. This was against United Nation’s prediction of possible bloodbath during the election.
Fiction: Dr. Nentawe was an ordinary lecturer. He cannot afford the APC governorship form at the cost of 50 million naira.
●FACT: Dr. Nentawe has indeed picked up the APC governorship form, filled, submitted and has since been screened and cleared by the party to run.

He is more concerned about raising great people than amassing wealth. This justifies the goodwill he enjoys from people both within the country and in the diaspora.

Calls that mentioned violence related phrases or words like kill, fight, attack, thugs, money, weapons, etc in English, Hausa, Tiv, Idoma and Igede were tracked and screened while political thugs and their sponsors were picked and shipped out of the state to allow for peaceful elections to be held.
