PDP Raises Alarm: Benue State Descending into Anarchy Under Governor Hyacinth Alia

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Benue strongly asserts that the state is spiraling into anarchy under the current leadership of Governor Hyacinth Alia. In a statement by its spokesperson, Bemgba Iortyom, the party condemns the indefinite suspension of Kwande Local Government Area Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Terdoo Kenti, and his Executive Committee members. Describing this move as an aberration, Iortyom highlights the disdain for democratic norms and the leadership incompetence of Governor Hyacinth Alia, under whose watch such absurdities unfold. Iortyom emphasizes that the suspension of Mr. Kenti reflects Alia’s dictatorial tendencies aimed at subverting constitutional order in the state. He states, “PDP observes that while the bizarre suspension order by Revd. Fr. Hule in Kwande is shocking, it apes precisely the lawless style of his master, the governor, in Makurdi, and the party regrets that this serves to fuel the growing impression that Catholic priests, by their command and authoritarian orientation, are unsuitable for political leadership under our liberal democratic setting.”
