 Reports have it that Alia had issues with Akume over the choice of Chief of Staff and Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF.

Reacting, Alia said Akume was his leader and leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the North Central.

“I don’t have any crisis with the SGF. He is my leader and the leader of the APC in the State and the Zone. People are creating their perceived crisis where there is no crisis.

“As a State, we made plans to welcome him home but the entire North Central Zone, including the FCT, said they want to be part of it so the plans are on the way,” he said.
