There is an old-age adage which says “a gold fish has no hidden place”. This adage has a very simple interpretation which is to the effect that an individual becomes recognized and patronized by society based on what one is. In this circumstance, what is paramount is how well an individual has lived and impacted on the society, but not how long one has lived. The abridged profile below is a confirmation that in all fields of human endeavour, there are people who stand out clearly among their contemporaries based on unique endowments from God and how they have utilized their natural endowments to benefit the society.

Fr. Alia's Exceptional Skills

    • Aggressive Mobilization and Prudential     Management of Funds

    By all standards, Fr Alia remains the only candidate with very pragmatic and sincere skills in mobilization of scare funds needed for the state. He has no single business entity of his own, no in-laws   and biological children except the welfare of Benue state to tackle. He is simply people-oriented in the management of scare resources as demonstrated at the church project at St Thomas Mission Anum, Makurdi. He recently applied same limited resources in executing quality infrastructure at the proposed Catholic University, Vandeikya, by the Catholic Diocese of Gboko


    • Popularity and Uniformity

    Fr Alia is the most    popular gubernatorial candidate in Benue State and Nigeria at large for the 2023 elections. Even without holding any political    office before in the state, his support base and acceptability is seen as a strong hope for effective political leadership in Benue State
