The winner of the Benue State governorship election, Rev Father Hyacinth Alia, has described his victory on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as a mandate to recalibrate governance in the state.
Alia, a Catholic priest, who defeated his closest rival, Titus Uba, of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), acknowledged the enormity of the challenges that lie ahead and what his victory means in the face of such challenges.
He said, “Our state, Benue, needs a total reset! Governance in our state has hit a historic low. This election is a mandate to reform and recalibrate governance in Benue.
“We need all hands, all good and ready hands, to be on deck. We need men and women whom the spoils of office cannot buy. We need all who believe that a new Benue is possible.
“We will clear the backlog of arrears of salaries and pensions and gratuities, resettle our IDPs in their ancestral homes, address persistent insecurity challenges and set the stage for a prosperous Benue.”
