The Managing Director of Nigerian Export Processing Zones Authority (NEPZA) and former speaker of Benue State House of Assembly, RT Hon Barrister Emmanuel Jime clocked 56 today, 20th June 2018. There has been an outpouring of birthday wishes from friends and supporters for the political icon. It is yet unclear if he will be organizing a celebration to mark this milestone in his life.
The prolific Benue State politician who was selected as the Speaker of the Benue State House of Assembly between 1992- 1993, while he was just 30 years old, marking him as one of the youngest Speakers, has been quite exemplary in the political landscape.
The acclaimed politician who is allegedly contesting for Benue Gubernatorial election come 2019, is further driven in his objective to uphold the mandate of the people of Benue State.
