The contumacious candidate of All Progressives Congress APC in Benue state Hon. Hyacinth Alia has once again shown that he lacks what it takes to govern the people. All other governorship candidates have issued statements since yesterday wishing Benue people a merry Christmas, but Alia has done nothing of the sort.

The Christmas day has come and gone, yet no message has come from the camp of the yahoo yahoo APC candidate. His arrogance won’t allow him to wish anyone good. He sees himself as someone who towers above all other human beings.

After taking millions from Tinubu, El Rufai and other sponsors with a fake promise do Christmas for those deceiving themselves about his ambition, Alia did not buy even one sachet of water or a half bag of rice for anyone. He was not reachable throughout yesterday and has remained unavailable today.

Yesterday, being the eve of Christmas, some members of the APC trooped to Alia’s Makurdi house in New GRA to find out what was happening as their people back home were expecting the Christmas package from them. Eye witnesses said on getting to the gate, stern looking thugs chased the APC members from the gate and told them to go and seek Christmas elsewhere.

Some of the courageous ones among them brought out their phones and dialed the number of Alia which was switched off. He could not be reached even at 6 o’clock in the evening. The hungry and angry APC members who could no longer wait began to leave in frustration and regret.

Some of them were heard saying “Is that how this man hopes to win elections?” “How can you treat your key supporters this way with just two months to the elections?” ‘Let’s see how he will continue like this and win. I am tired of the whole thing”.

They said it was the first major test of Alia and he has failed. The APC members frowned at his conduct and gave the suspended priest till the morning of Christmas (today) to release the funds or face a public protest.

At the time of this report, APC people have not seen any money. The frustration and confusion in their camp has now grown to anger. A number of them are already insulting Alia and calling him a selfish and arrogant person.
