I write on behalf of the leadership and entire membership of the Alia Alliance worldwide, to congratulate you on your well-deserved selection as the Deputy Governorship Candidate of our party, the All Progressives Congress, Benue State.

The world-renowned writer, David Starr Jordan once said, “The world stands aside to let anyone pass who knows where he is going.”

Your selection to this position, which is sequel to your long and inexhaustible list of recorded exploits, gives credence to the here-referenced words of Starr Jordan and further affirms the ability of the human self to achieve and overcome anything it averts its heart and mind to.

As a foremost member of the ALIA ALLIANCE, your selection is a testimony to the quality of the group and a further confirmation yet, of the calibre of its membership and productivity.

We are deeply elated at this development and convinced that as an ambassador of the Alliance, you will further elevate the stakes and make us proud.

Benue needs you. Benue needs your experience. And Benue is waiting for your role in its liberation. May God give you the ability to deliver on these expectations.

Once more, congratulations Your Excellency.
