The intra-party dispute in the Benue State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) took another dimension on Monday following the suspension of four lawmakers.
Politics Nigeria reports that some lawmakers loyal to Governor Hyacinth Alia have been at loggerheads with their other colleagues over the past few months.
The four lawmakers were suspended for alleged sabotage of plenary.
The four suspended members are; Cephas Dyako, Gyila Solomon, Akya Douglas and Anthony Agom.
Their suspension came shortly after elders of the party met at the Government House to pass a vote of confidence in the governor whom both the state working committee and the local government chapters recently moved against.
The APC elders led by former Senate President, Ameh Ebute, and many others called for an emergency stakeholders’ meeting to resolve all internal issues, a few moment before the suspension of the lawmakers for allegedly frustrating today’s plenary.
The leadership of the APC in Benue and the governor has been on a collision course over power sharing formula since June 2023.
