APC DISMISSES REPORT OF ALLEGED NULLIFICATION OF BENUE GOVERNORSHIP PRIMARIES
Written by Samson Ojeniran on June 6, 2022
The Benue State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has described malicious and false trending social media reports designed to call to question the transparent, free and fair Governorship Primary Election recently conducted by the party that was clearly and comprehensively won by the Catholic priest, Hyacinth Alia.
The refutal was contained in a statement by its Publicity Secretary, Daniel Ihomun who urged the general public to disregard the baseless insinuation as lacking substance.
“The Benue APC wants to make it abundantly clear that Rev. Fr. Hyacinth Alia has been chosen by the majority of APC members and no amount of blackmail, lies and cooked-up propaganda against his candidacy will see the light of day.
The APC is more than ready to take back Benue and to bring development to the state which has suffered the worst mal-administration since its creation”, he noted
Similarly, another statement issued by the Head of Media of the Alialization ’23 Campaign Organisation, Kula Tersoo towed the same line.
“Members of the public, great APC family, supporters and fans of Rev. Fr. Hyacinth Iormem Alia should not take serious fake stories on the social media that the APC Election “Appeal Panel” has canceled the just concluded gubernatorial primaries conducted in the state.
This is a crude lie. A wicked concoction by enemies of the state to get temporary relief from acute fever they caught following Alia’s victory at the direct primaries of the party”, the statement read in part.
Kula insists that the said document being circulated in cyberspace is as fake as its promoters.
He further argued that the Elections Appeal Panels of political parties have no powers to dissolve or cancel an electoral process but may recommend at most.
He urged the people to watch out for more details on the forgery and falsification of the said document with the obvious intention to deceive unsuspecting members of the public.
