Also speaking, the President Benue Diaspora Community for Good Governance Comrade Emmanuel Iorhumba Atule who also doubles as President of Kunav Development Association (KUDA) in Kaduna said “some mischief makers and political mercenaries have resulted to cheap blackmail against the Governor of Benue State but we assure you your Excellency, we are aware of these litany of lies and we know the truth and we are solidly behind you.”

Comrade Emmanuel Atule recounted that “after taking over power as the 6th democratically elected governor of Benue State on May 29, 2023, in the last one year, Governor Alia has delivered a number of democratic dividends to the good people of Benue including ensuring timely delivery of fertilizers to farmers at subsidized rate, construction of 16 roads in Makurdi metropolis with work ongoing at construction of underpasses in Makurdi and Gboko towns and on several other roads in the rural areas.”

“Governor Alia has also remodelled the Benue State House of Assembly Complex, renovated and furnished the Benue State Secretariat Complex, connected the Benue State Secretariat, Government House, and Water board to 330KVA transformer to ensure constant supply of electricity.

“In the health, Alia has revived the Muhammad Buhari Mothercare and Child Hospital in Makurdi, brought in a new leadership at the Benue State University Teaching Hospital, BSUTH, Makurdi, procured advanced standard medical equipment and employed over medical 400 staff and specialists for improved efficiency.” Atule maintained.

On use of Palliative funds, Atule pointed that Governor Alia has purchased 100 new buses for Benue Links, the state government owned transport company to cushion the hard effect of fuel subsidy removal on travellers and has constructed drainages round the Benue Links Main park in Makurdi and asphalted the premises of the company to avoid flooding. ”

“Yours Excellency, we have never witnessed such massive projects within one year by any government in Benue State, perhaps the reason for the envy. In Kaduna State, Benue Links has no parking place, for years the managers keep jumping from on rented space to another, we appeal for a permanent park for Benue Links as it has also come of age in Kaduna.” He said
