Very interested in seeing his performance. He's the first of his kind holding a strong political office in Nigeria.

But wait ooo. Nobody's wailing that he's APC. grin grin

A decent profile and I hope he would lead the change in Benue through provision of democratic dividends.

As a Rev. Father, he should be able to connect with people easily and provide the desired needs. There are blueprints he can tap from e.g Fashola of Lagos, Seyi Makinde of Oyo and Zulum of Borno. You don't have to do big projects before making significant impacts.

With proper implementation of the right policies, he could be the pioneer of Benue liberation.

Though, i haven't seen any of his picture smiling... Lol. But I wish him all the Best.

Yes Father.

Congratulations to Benue people.

Father Alia is a friend to Tinubu. Yesterday he still adorned Jagaban signature cap and I am confident Tinubu will work hand in hand with him to solve the major problem in Benue which is insecurity. After that, Benue state must be given huge incentive to complement their agricultural prowess and reconsolidate the state as the food basket of the nation.
