Benue Diaspora Community hails Gov. Alia over projects, roars on distractorsGroup under the auspices of Benue Diaspora Community for Good Governance yesterday hailed Benue State Governor Dr. Rev. Fr. Hyacinth Alia over what it described as “Massive Execution of People-oriented Projects” stressing that political merchants must stir clear of distractive tactics against the Governor Alia led administration.

Speaking via a press statement in Kaduna yesterday jointly signed by Comr. Emmanuel Atule and Sir. Ababa Francis Adole (KSJI) Director General and Director Publicity and Communications respectively said the ‘Diaspora Community have been carefully watching with keen interest, the policies and programmes of the Alia led administration since its inception about six months ago. Within this very short period, the Diaspora Community has noticed that the administration has articulated a number of visionary and strategic decisions that are capable of repositioning the state on a clear path of real economic, political, socio-cultural and sustainable human development agenda’

Benue Diaspora Community for Good Governance pinpointed that ‘the on-going training on Innovation and Business Start-up for Capacity building, the procurement of 100 new buses for Benue Links Ltd to ease public transportation, regular/timely payment of Civil Service Staff Salaries/pensions,
availability of highly subsidized fertilizers for farmers in the state, the on-going 16-Township Road Rehabilitation project in Makurdi, the State Capital,100 Units Housing project at Gboko Road on Owner occupier basis, availability of Clean tap drinking water in Makurdi the state capital and frantic efforts to resettle IDPs in their ancestral homes after years of exile as result insecurity.

Comrade Atule maintained that “as a body whose primary mission is to ensure good governance in Benue State, we in the Benue Diaspora Community for Good Governance wish to vehemently condemn any person or group of persons and indeed, any forces that will derail the process and implementation of good governance in Benue State. It is against this back drop that we issue this press statement. ‘

The group cautioned that too much of politicking and political wrangling amongst party stalwarts and stakeholders will derail the Governor’s visionary and strategic focus and direction.

The Benue Diaspora Community for Good Governance said it has strong feelings and believe that the Governor, Dr. Rev. Fr. Hyacinth Alia and his dynamic team should be given free hands to implement the much desired people-oriented programmes they have outlined for good governance in the State.

While warning Political Merchants in the state, the group maintained that Benue people must equally realize that the Alia administration is their own Government as it is not the government that can easily be high-jacked by the”political merchants” in the state. It is our hope that this political merchandizing will gradually give way to real democratic principles of Good Governance in the state as we all collectively support the Alia administration.

The Benue Diaspora Community for Good Good Governance called on Nigeria’s SGF Senator George Akume and the Benue State Governor Rev.Fr. Hyacinth Alia to continuously fraternize to ensure good governance for Benue people stressing that no well meaning Benue son will instigate frictions between Senator George Akume and Governor.
