BENUE STATE 2023: Meet The Catholic Priest, Rev. Father Hyacinth Who Wants To Be Governor On The Platform Of The APC.

Rev. Fr. Hyacinth Alia.

There has been a very huge demand by Nigerians for Christians not to allow abandon politics to politicians on and to join to make the change so desire, which maybe the reason why a reverend father with the Catholic Church, Rev. Fr. Dr. Hyacinth Alia has joined the governorship race in Benue State and this he is doing on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Rev. Father Hyacinth Alia on Saturday had an interactive session with the Benue community in Abuja to seek support for his ambition, organised by the Alia Alliance, a group coordinating efforts to promote the priest’s gubernatorial ambition.

Rolling out his seven-point agenda for development of Benue, Father Alia of the Catholic Diocese of Gboko, said his mission was to ensure that the government continued to prioritize the needs of residents and people of the state and listed his agenda to include enhancing education and healthcare, tackling corruption and other malpractices, as social justice would be strictly adhered to in the context of ‘One Benue, One Brotherhood’;” he said, adding that he would also stop land grabbers in the state.

The reverend father pledged to create jobs and ensure massive industrial development through tax breaks and holiday to local businesses; we will provide a leadership that will restore our values, pride and dignity.

According to him, Benue State has suffered from long years of ill-governance which has stunted its growth and development and the maladministration over the years had resulted in the underdevelopment, insecurity and general hardship that people of the state had been subjected to, which is the need for all Benue indigenes to rise up and join us to change the “ugly political narrative in the state.

“Benue is broken enough and it’s time to fix it. I joined partisan politics to salvage the state from collapse.

Earlier, the Chairman of the Alia Alliance, Peter Ashiekaa appealed to the Benue indigenes in Abuja to throw their weight behind what he called, the ‘Divine Project’ and appealed for support to realise the aspirations of father Alia, whom he said offered the only hope for the emancipation of Benue people.

If his bid succeeds, Mr. Alia would have achieved a similar feat by Rev. Fr. Moses Adasu, a Catholic priest who was elected civilian governor of Benue in 1992.
