- Recent accusations by the Benue chapter of the APC regarding the governor’s alleged neglect of the party and collaboration with opposition factions were refuted by Alia
Benue State governor, Hyacinth Alia, expressed his unwavering loyalty to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and clarified that he remains devoted to the party’s cause.
His statement, conveyed through his Chief Press Secretary, Tersoo Kula, and released to the press in Makurdi on Sunday, reaffirmed his commitment.
Recent accusations by the Benue chapter of the APC regarding the governor’s alleged neglect of the party and collaboration with opposition factions were refuted by Alia. He denied the claims, emphasizing his deep attachment to the APC, particularly the Benue chapter, and asserted his diligent efforts aimed at upholding the party’s integrity.
“A particularly absurd claim says there is a formation and funding of a committee headed by retired Gen. Lawrence Onoja and Mr Emmanuel Jime, supposedly tasked to misinform the Presidency and National Secretariat about the situation in Benue.
“That committee is also expected to spread falsehoods against the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF).
“As a governor, l am determined to fulfill my campaign promises to Benue people.
“My continued funding of our party activities and expanding its stakeholders meetings in the state are eloquent testimonies of how I hold the party so dear to my heart,” the governor said.
