See what Benue APC did for Alia’s loyalists
The All Progressives Congress in Benue State has overturned the indefinite suspension slammed on some appointees and loyalties of the state Governor, Rev Fr Hyacinth Alia.
The state chairman of the party, Austin Agada, disclosed this at the end of the emergency meeting of the State Executive Committee of the party and the 23 local government party chairmen in Makurdi.
Social media had been awash with the purported suspension of some appointees of the governor in Kwande and Vandeikya local government areas of the state.
Agada said the meeting overturned the suspension issued to all party members in the state and further passed a vote of confidence in the governor.
He said the party had confidence in Alia’s ability to deliver on his campaign promises and they were strongly behind him.
“Even before the Governor arrived at the meeting, we unanimously passed a vote of confidence in the governor. We believe in his ability to deliver on his campaign promises.
“Also, all suspension issued on members so far is hereby nullified; they should all return to status quo,” Agada said.
Also speaking to journalists, Alia said the meeting became necessary to correct certain misinformation ongoing on social media and to pledge their loyalty to the APC.
He said there was every need for them to be together for the unity of purpose and that no one was leaving the APC.
The governor said, “We are here to correct some frivolities that are going on in the social media and at the end of the meeting the chairman was able to make some pronouncements over the suspension of certain persons in the party and all that.
The primary aim is to give us a good sense of oneness, unity, and that of unity of purpose that when we come together we become more of a force.
“And also that we have a number of projects that we are executing and I wouldn’t want any distraction from any angle at all.
“So, it is very meaningful that we all pledge our loyalty to the APC and that no one is leaving APC and that we are all one and working for the greatness of APC and we don’t want any distraction from any angle whatsoever.”
