BREAKING: Political activist, Austin Agada, emerges Benue APC consensus chairman
News reaching TheNigerian News is that political activist, Comrade Austin Agada, has been confirmed as the consensus chairmanship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in Benue State.
The decision was reached today at a top level meeting convened by APC Zone C leader, Alhaji Usman Abubakar who is also from Ogbadibo Local Government with top leaders and stakeholders of the party from Ogbadibo Local
Government at his Otukpo mansion.

Agada will take over from Comrade Abba Yaro after the party’s State Congress on the 2nd of October, 2021.
