Benue APC accuses Alia’s officials of sponsoring protests against Tinubu, Akpabio, Akume

Nigerian Concord Newspaper

The Benue state chapter of the All Progressive Congress has accused officials in the administration of the governor of the state, Reverend Father Hyacinth Alia of planning to sponsor a large scale protest against the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Bola Ahmed Tinubu GCFR in an effort to discourage him from giving effect to the Senate’s resolution stopping release of funds to local government caretaker committees in Nigeria.

This revelation was contained in a press statement issued last night by Mr. Daniel Ihomun, the State Publicity Secretary, APC, Benue State.

The statement reads:

The protest is also alleged to be targeting the Senate President, Distinguish Sen Godswill Akpabio, who presided over the Senate plenary that passed the resolution and the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Sen. Dr George Akume, the Leader of APC in Benue, who has become a victim of malicious accusations in the State by mischief makers.

This plot has been deeply hatched and their first experimental step was the call on the Party Chairman in the State, Comrade Austin Agada to resign without advancing any genuine reason.

The party views this act of sabotage as portending grave danger to the unity of the state and the party, if people who claim APC membership and are working under an APC state government would undermine their President, the Senate President and the SGF in an open protest in their quest to stifle the hands of government on a matter of law.

Much as the organizers are free to express themselves, taking steps that would embarrass Mr. President and his administration is unacceptable and must be halted.

The party therefore calls on the Inspector General of Police and the Benue State Commissioner of Police to monitor closely this planned protest which may wear a semblance of solidarity march but with a sinister end motive.

The party equally calls on the Governor of Benue State, Hyacinth Iormem Alia to monitor the activities of unscrupulous elements around his government who are using his name to perpetrate acts that are capable of plunging the state into anarchy that would necessitate the declaration of a state of emergency.

All security agencies in the state are enjoined to be on alert to check the activities of this group that seems to undermine the peace of the state and is hellbent on planting divisive tendencies. The general public should please, take note of this Nollywood script.
