The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Benue, says the state is sliding into anarchy under the current dispensation of Governor Hyacinth Alia.
The party in a statement by its spokesperson, Bemgba Iortyom condemned the indefinite suspension of Kwande LGA Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Terdoo Kenti, and other members of his Executive Committee.
He described the act as an aberration which exposes the disdain for democratic norms and leadership incompetence of Governor Hyacinth Alia under whose watch such absurdity is unraveling.
Mr Iortyom said the obnoxious act which has been appropriately dismissed by the state chapter of the APC is of no consequence.
He said the suspension of Mr Kenti is part of the dictatorial tendency of Alia to subvert constitutional order in the state.
Mr Iortyom said, “PDP observes that while the bizarre suspension order by Revd. Fr. Hule in Kwande is shocking, it apes precisely the lawless style of his master, the governor, in Makurdi, and the party regrets that this serves to fuel the growing impression that Catholic priests by their command and authoritarian orientation are unsuitable to political leadership under our liberal democratic setting”.
