Two chairmen have emerged in the All Progressives Congress (APC), the Benue State chapter, as the suspended state Welfare Secretary, Benjamin Omakolo, declared himself the acting state chairman, following the suspension of the state chairman, Austin Agada, some officials of his Owukpa Ehaje ward One.
The fight has also led to the vandalism of the state party secretariat, as the APC state Director for Medical and Information Communication Technology, Martinez Tyotsumeh, accused the state government of leading policemen and soldiers to destroy cars, office equipment, laptops, phones and carting away money meant for party agents deployed for the Guma One state constituency bye-election.
However, the suspension of the state welfare secretary, who is now said to be the state acting chairman, has been dismissed by his Igoro ward officials who accused the state working committee and the Apa Local Government Area chairman of the party of forging their signatures to effect the alleged suspension.
