Benue: Father Alia spark mixed reactions with ‘new ride’ fitted with governor-elect plate number
Social media users have responded to a picture purporting to show the official armored car of Reverend Father Hyacinth Alia, the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for governor of Benue State.
After the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Returning Officer, Prof. Faruk Kuta declared the Catholic priest the winner of the election on Monday, it was reported that Rev. Fr. Hyacinth Alia had won the Benue governorship election held on Saturday.
In order to defeat Titus Uba of the Peoples Democratic Party, who received 223,914 votes, the APC candidate polled 473,933 votes.
However, a popular image of a Lexus LX 570 with the plate number “Governor-elect Benue State” has drawn a variety of responses from Nigerians on social media.
However, this platform is unable to confirm whether the armored vehicle is the Reverend Father’s official vehicle.

Congratulation, Padre!, anyi wealth1 wrote. If the elective governor of Benue State asked for my advice! Padre, I would say! Remember the souls that were massacred in the church vicinities across Benue land? It’s time to exact revenge or defend your land from any invading Cow and its bearers with “arms”! All of it is up to you, sir! You can choose to play politics with your people or make history. Sir, use your priestly robe well.
