Facts have emerged on the plot by Governor Hyacinth Alia to impeach the Speaker of the Benue State House of Assembly, Hon. Aondona Hyacinth Dajoh.

According to a source in Government House, Governor Alia fell out with Dajoh after he(Dajoh) rejected the kangaroo plot to suspend the state Chairman of the APC Comrade Austin Agada and subsequently suspend the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Senator George Akume, from the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Other offences of Dajoh include the Speaker’s refusal to indulge in anti-party activities with the governor,refusal to suspend members of the Benue State House of Assembly who insist on due process and often challenge Alia’s notorious character of embarking on projects or spending without budgetary allocation and approval.

Governor Alia also expected Speaker Aondona Dajoh to suspend some members of the Benue State House of Assembly who insist that he(Alia) must be transparent by making public the internally generated revenue(IGR) of the state and huge federal allocation from the federal government and the state wage bill.

The refusal of Dajoh to fulfil Governor Alia’s dictatorial and tyranic demands have made the governor to see him as a threat, resulting to the governor commissioning the impeachment of Dajoh, to replace him with the member representing Makurdi North State Constituency, Hon. Berger Alfred, who actively participated in Governor Alia’s anti-party activities in last Saturday’s Guma 1 State Constituency bye-election by supporting the candidate of the Labour Party publicly. Berger after collecting money to travel with other members of the Assembly to Turkey for study tour stayed behind to execute the Anti- party campaign against the APC but lost woefully.

A credible source also disclosed that Governor Alia is aware that he doesn’t have the number to impeach the speaker.

He has therefore commisoned some of his stooges in the Assembly to win some members of the main opposition party in the state, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to support the governor’s move and in a bid they fail, they should disrupt the sitting and citing security, they will hold a press conference in Government house and announce a new speaker.

However, some members of the State Assembly who have refused to support Governor Alia’s plot to remove the speaker see him as one who is into ‘use and dump’ and politics of betrayal.

Our credible source from the State Assembly who is against the plot to remove Dajoh disclosed that, the governor abandoning the renovation of the Assembly Complex which has seen the contractor pack out of the premises is a plot by Governor Alia to keep the assembly to continue sitting at government house in order to keep the Assembly in check.

According to him, this is also a point of disagreement between Governor Alia and the speaker who wants an independent assembly after the governor has failed in all his promises to the assembly.

The source reveled that after so many attempts to see the governor, the speaker recently wrote on his Facebook page that he is tire. This public statement is said to have provoke the governor and his inner team.

The question on our lips now is, “what manner of man of God is that?”
