The leader of the INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele, has hinted at a possible feud governor of Benue state, Hyacinth Alia and the secretary to the government of the federation (SGF), George Akume.

The cleric disclosed that the hostility would occur in August next year.

Primate Ayodele made the disclosure in a video via his X handle on Monday, November 20.

“The Benue state governor and Akume, I’m seeing that they will have a loggerhead as from August next year. And this issue will take them to the unexpected which will surely strain their relationship.” reports that Messrs Alia and Akume are chieftains of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), with the latter a key ally of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Meanwhile, Akume recently noted that he has no problem with Governor Alia.

The rumours of a feud between both men have been ongoing for some time now.
