The entire people of Jemgbagh extraction of Benue Northwest senatorial district have accepted the lead governorship aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Rev Fr. Dr Hyacinth Iormem Alia, and blessed him with a charge to go out, campaign, and win the Benue 2023 governorship election.

This was after the people of Jechira went to notify and present their very own Rev. Fr. Hyacinth Iormem Alia to his mother’s kinsmen-Jemgbagh and equally sought their consent and support as he joined partisan politics with an intent to rescue Benue from the abyss of misrepresentation and bad governance.

Speaking during the presentation at Elder Haa Orpin’s compound, Yandev, Gboko local government area of Benue State, the former chairman of APC, Vandeikya local government, Hon. Alhaji Abubakar Aseer Ihongo, explained how diligently they have served other intermediate areas when it was their turn to produce a governor and humbly solicited support from Jemgbagh, emphasizing that Fr. Dr Hyacinth Alia is their son and he is humbly disposed to guarantee good governance and serve the Benue people in the best way possible.

Fr. Hyacinth Iormem Alia, pointing out that Fr. Alia has associated with the downtrodden, the weary and the poor, and he has the requisite to reposition Benue State on the path of good governance and infrastructural development just as they promised not to bring another aspirant to seek support from Jemgbagh again.
