Benue’s Peoples Democratic Party, claims that under Governor Hyacinth Alia’s present administration, the state is devolving into chaos.
The party, represented by Bemgba Iortyom, its spokesperson, denounced Terdoo Kenti, the Kwande LGA Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), and other members of his Executive Committee’s indefinite suspension.
He called the behaviour an anomaly that shows Governor Hyacinth Alia’s contempt for democratic principles and his lack of leadership ability, which is causing this folly to come apart.
According to Mr. Iortyom, the offensive act, which the APC state chapter rightfully disregarded, has no bearing on anything.
He claimed that Mr Kenti’s suspension was a component of Alia’s autocratic inclination to undermine the state’s constitutional order.
“PDP observes that while the bizarre suspension order by Revd. Fr. Hule in Kwande is shocking, the party regrets that this serves to fuel the growing impression that Catholic priests, by their command and authoritarian orientation, are unsuitable to political leadership under our liberal democratic setting.” Mr. Iortyom said. “It apes precisely the lawless style of his master, the governor, in Makurdi.”
