As crisis continue to rock various state chapters of the All Progressive Alliance (APC) after the conduct of the local government congresses, the Benue state chapter is set to face another hurdle as it prepares to elect state excutive council.
atiterkula has gathered that in the build up to the election there are speculations that the Senate Minority leader and Leader of the party in the state, Sen. George Akume is intending to impose his croonies on the party which has not gone down well with many follower whi have already began making moves to decamp to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
This trend has taken a different dimension as aggrieved members of the party have taken to social media platforms to express their grievances. until this afternoon texts have been circulated round the state campaigning for and against Akume’s suspected anointed candidate, Comrade Abba Yaro.
The texts from a group tagged “Abba Yaro Solidarity Movement” campaigning for Yaro made available to atiterkula read thus:
““Join d moving train now or be left out ‘Comr. Abba Yaro as State Chairman’ the most preffered and sole candidate of the leaders of APC. No Abba Yaro, No APC. Courtesy Abba Yaro Solidarity Movement. NO SHAKING”.
While minutes later another text from a counter group simply titled Re: APC read thus:
“Is Abba Yaro d kind of chairman u want for change?
– A liar&fraudster in making a living
create parties among party faithfuls to have his dubious ways
-sets a time bomb in APC bypromising tickets to everyone as a bid for his support
– sleeps in hotels, even in the vilage no house, no address anywhere
in various courts for dubious crimes, now wanted by the police
-collects money from everyone even PDP & eventually runsaway on election day& not win election even in his polling unit
– has no credibility record in whatsoever task, unreliable & has no fear of God.
ON ABBA YARO APC IS DEAD ON ARRIVAL”
it could be recalled that Comr. Abba Yaro who seems to be the centre of this exchange was the state chairman of the Action Congress of Nigeria and was later accused of gross finacial misappropriation to which the party leadr was said to have turned a blind eye.
he was recently declared wanted alongside another APC chieftain in the state, Hon. Nelson Alapa as advertised in national dailies.
