The Governorship Candidate of the All Progressives Congress APC in Benue State, Rev Fr Dr Hyacinth Iormem Alia has promised to provide incentives and grants to farmers to boost rice production in the state when he becomes the Governor.

He acknowledged the fact that the Agatu and Apa People are largely economically dependent on farming, but insecurity has halted farming activities in many areas.

The priest, however, promised to end insecurity and give priority attention to timely supply of subsidized farm inputs especially fertilizer and quality seeds to farmers to boost their farm produce.

Fr. Alia also assured the people of his willingness to provide the basic social amenities critical to human existence and social growth such as good roads, housing, water, power and job creation.

While paying homage to the traditional rulers, Fr. Alia questions their meagre and epileptic welfare packages, and promised to up it once he takes over as the governor.

He gave hope to civil servants and pensioners, promising to keep to his salary obligations and pay retirees their entitlements as at when due.

The APC governorship candidate stressed the need for Benue to reconnect itself with the Federal executives to gain more federal presence in the state.

He called on the people to vote Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and all other APC candidates for a fair, transparent and accountable leadership.

The APC Senatorial Candidate for Benue South, Comr. Dan Onjeh, the House of Representatives and all the assembly candidates as well as party chairmen at the two local government areas amongst other party members all spoke at the event.
