In a significant development, key stakeholders of the Benue All Progressives Congress (APC), spearheaded by former Senate President Senator Ameh Ebute, have strongly condemned the recent attacks on Governor Hyacinth Alia by local government chairmen and the state party chairman.
A communique, read by Chief Ebute in Makurdi, expressed deep displeasure over the content of a statement released by APC local government chairmen and the party’s state executive committee.
The statement accused Governor Hyacinth Alia of disrespecting party structures in the state.
The stakeholders disapproved of the actions of the local government party chairmen and the executive committee, particularly their failure to explore internal channels for resolution before resorting to public statements.
They criticized the unnecessary media outings, emphasizing that such actions had exacerbated internal matters that could have been managed within the party.
Referring to communiqués on social media by APC local government chairmen and the resolution of the State Working Committee, the stakeholders argued that these were deliberate attempts to distract Governor Alia from fulfilling his campaign promises to the people.
Highlighting previous stakeholders’ meetings initiated by Governor Alia, the group noted that elders and party executives had previously expressed confidence in the governor’s leadership and applauded his inclusive style.
As concerned elders, they urged all party members to refrain from further public statements and actions that could sow discord within the party.
The stakeholders called on local government chairmen and the state executive committee to cease further actions, allowing elders and major stakeholders to intervene and seek resolutions to all outstanding issues.
