The rejected governorship candidate of All Progressives Congress, APC in Benue state Hyacinth Alia has abandoned his party men and women and has switched off his phone lines just two days to Christmas.
According to eyewitnesses, some frustrated APC members went to the gate of his white mansion located at New GRA in Makurdi this morning but were forcefully stopped from gaining entry by mean-looking thugs who harassed the APC members and chased them away from the gate.
Two of the elderly men among the supporters fell and injured themselves in the process of trying to retreat. The angry supporters began to raise their voices and call out the suspended priest whom they accused of showing arrogance and insensitivity to the needs of the people. They said even if Alia was busy, as someone who is aspiring for a public office, directing his thugs and security men to manhandle his supporters is the last thing expected from him.
An angry member of the APC media team who pleaded not to be quoted said everyone in the team is shocked beyond words at the conduct of Alia. They have taken to their social media walls to lament and express their frustration. Some have accused him of trying to hoard the millions that he recently got from some northern governors so that if he loses election in 2023, he can use the funds to move to the United States or UK.

Members of the APC state working committee are not spared from Alia’s frustration. He has not been reachable in the past few days. Aside from that brief outing in Vandeikya yesterday, the man has refused to speak with anyone.
James Ornguga who is the state organizing secretary of APC could no longer hide his frustration today as he posted on Facebook that he is in a rude shock.
As each day passes, Alia reveals to Benue people that he is someone who cannot be trusted. He is greedy, selfish, corrupt and arrogant.
