The list of commissioner-nominees provided by Governor Hyacinth Alia to the Benue State House of Assembly has sparked debate.

In a recent event, it was reported that the Governor officially delivered a thorough list of 14 commissioner-nominees to the House for screening on July 27th.

Hyacinth Dajoh, the Speaker of the House, made a big announcement during the plenary session on Thursday. Dajoh grabbed the floor to deliver crucial news to his colleagues, delivering a letter from the Governor.

Dajoh, who has chosen to remain silent regarding the nominees’ identities, declared in a recent statement that the names will be revealed on the day of screening.

In a recent development, the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has levied accusations against the Governor. According to the PDP, the Governor is accused of committing an impeachable act by allegedly failing to comply with the constitutional obligation of submitting a list of candidates to the House within 60 days of taking office. This obligation is detailed in Section 147 of the 1999 Constitution, as revised by the Fifth Alteration No. 23 of 2023.

In a recent development, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has leveled severe allegations against Benue State Governor Alia.

The PDP claims that Governor Alia erroneously said that he had provided a list of nominees to the Speaker. These charges have raised worries and thrown doubt on the governor’s conduct.

In a shocking disclosure, the party has accused the Governor of reportedly sending a list of “ghost nominees” to the House.

In a recent development, Governor Alia replied to the PDP’s claims. In a statement issued on Wednesday by his Chief Press Secretary, Sir Tersoo Kula, the Governor accused the PDP of propagating fake information. He further stated that their purported rage stemmed from the State’s continued attempts to tackle corruption.

Kula recently stated that the opposition party lacks proof to back their argument that the names of Commissioners were not submitted to the assembly within the required timeframe of 60 days from the date of proclamation.

In a statement, he revealed that the House was in recess at the time, but was immediately summoned for an emergency session. The goal of this unexpected assembly was to address and address the Governor’s list.

In a surprising revelation, it has become clear that individuals who have been severely embroiled in corruption are not willing to back down without a struggle. The indisputable reality is that these individuals, who have been openly soiled by their involvement in corrupt acts, are prepared to vehemently reject any attempts to hold them accountable. Corruption has been seen staging a powerful counterattack in a breathtaking display of tenacity. This is simply another heroic effort to confront the current realities.

According to a recent statement, the PDP, led by former Governor Samuel Ortom, is made up of persons who engage in loose language and are known for disseminating propaganda and falsehoods.
