Breaking: APA Stakeholders, Political Elites Reject Benjamin Omakolo As APC Chair

says Omakolo is rather strategizing to contest for the House Of Representative Seat under APA/Agatu Federal Constituency, 2027. 

The APA local government APC stakeholders have rejected the purported Omakolo factional chairman of the party. Recall there has been serious cold war between Benjamin Omakolo (the Rev. Fr Alia’s factional Chairman) and the political elites in Apa LGA.

It was gathered that the Apa LGA Caretaker Committee Chairman, Hon Ochayi Alidu, the Commissioner for Power and Energy, Hon Barr Omale Omale and the Special Adviser to the Governor, Mr Yusuf Elaigwu; Hon. Adama Joseph Adama -Apa/Agatu APC House of Rep Candidate 2023; Chief Ameh Udoh, Hon. Abu Umoru- the House of Assembly member representing Apa Constituency; Hon. Entonu (former House of Rep Member for APA/Agatu), Alhaji Lungu and many other political elites from Apa LGA have refused to recognized the imposition of Omakolo as the Alia’s factional Chairman of the APC.

Revealed that till date, the above mentioned stakeholders,others have continued to shunned Omakolo and they did not even deem it necessary to pay him any homage or courtesy visit as it is being done by some Alia loyalists from the Tiv extraction.

This development was linked to the scheming and plans by Benjamin Omakolo to contest for the House of Representative for APA/AGATU Federal Constituency in 2027 under the platform of the APC. Their fears are that if Omakolo is allowed to retained the Alia’s factional Chairman of the party till the time of the party’s primary election, he would have an undue advantage and he may win the APC House of Rep ticket for APA/Agatu Federal Constituency.

These political actors in Apa LGA has only recognized the elected and vibrant Chairman of the party, Comr Austin Agada.

The total rejection of Benjamin Omakolo in his home reached a climax when the APC members and the Exco of his Igoro Council Ward in January 2024, passed a resolution suspending him from the party on the offences bordering on his failure to pay party membership dues, gross misconduct, insubordination and embezzlement of party funds. His suspension had since been ratified by the Apa LGA Exco of the party as well as the State Working Committee of APC. In line with the APC constitution, Omakolo is not even a member of the party anymore. Rev. Fr Alia may be ignorant of this dirty fact about him.

With the rejection of the Benjamin Omakolo right from his home front of Apa, he has become a political liability for Rev. Fr Alia as charity begins at home.

The stakeholders called on Rev Fr Alia to reconcile with the APC recognized structure to avoid further miscalculation and political misadventure.
