Benue APC Guber Candidate, Rev FR Alia Sets To Unveil Running Mate

The All Progressives Congress, APC governorship candidate for Benue State, Rev Fr Hyacinth Alia is set to announce his running mate today.

Benue info-pedia gathered that Rev Fr Alia will unveil his deputy to the public in Makurdi, the Benue State capital any moment from now.

It is pertinent to mention that since my election, I have taken the responsibility of providing leadership seriously. I have begun by talking with and where possible visiting my fellow contestants. I am very grateful for their sportsmanship and solidarity thus far.

“The discharge permit to place on record the unflinching support I have enjoyed from the leadership of our party across the state, elders, stakeholders, and supporters since I emerged as our gubernatorial candidate.

“Today is a day of history. I must begin to demonstrate my capacity for leadership by taking a very tough decision, the choice of a Deputy Governorship candidate for our great party.

“Fortunately for me, I have an array of qualified men and women to choose from. Ironically it is a difficult one since it can only be one person.

“In making this decision, I have made far-reaching consultations with leaders of our party, stakeholders, and various caucuses before choosing my running mate in order to enhance the joint ticket going into the general elections.

Benue info-pedia recalls that the leadership of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Benue South led by former Minister of Agriculture, Audu Ogbeh, had narrowed down the search for the running mate to the party’s governorship flag bearer in the state to three persons.

Among the nominees are former Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Barr. Sam Ode, Dr. Isaac Egboja and Benjamin Abuh Omakolo.
