Benue Assembly passes vote of confidence in Gov Alia


Despite the crisis rocking the state’s chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, the Benue State House of Assembly passed a vote of confidence on Governor Hyacinth Alia on Friday.

At the plenary, during the presentation of the 2024 budget, Simon Gabo, representing Mata state constituency, expressed satisfaction at the unprecedented performance of the governor.

He moved a motion and enjoined his colleagues to pass a vote of confidence on the governor.

Gabo, who applauded Alia’s unprecedented performance in just over six months, said it was beyond expectations.

“The governor has been nicknamed Mr 25th by the Benue people because of the prompt payment of salary and pensions and has embarked on huge infrastructural development without incurring any debt.


“Going by the extensive developmental strides of the Benue State government led by Gov Alia, I want to move that a vote of confidence be passed on the governor,” he said.

The member representing Katsina-Ala state constituency, Peter Ipusu, who seconded the motion, also eulogised the governor on his commitment to bettering the lot of Benue people.

Ipusu further commended the Speaker, Aondona Dajoh, for the good leadership of the house.

In the absence of any dissenting opinion, Speaker Dajoh ruled, and the vote of confidence was passed on Gov Alia.
