Tiv Traditional Council (TTC) has brokered peace between the governor of Benue State, Hyacinth Alia and the secretary to the government of the federation (SGF), Senator George Akume.
Worried by the worsening disagreement and cold war between the two leaders, the Tiv paramount ruler, Tor Tiv, Prof James Ayatse invited them to end the feud.

The closed-door meeting which lasted for several hours in Gboko, the headquarters of the Tiv nation, it was gathered, ended amicably.
The monarch who briefed newsmen on the outcome of the meeting, said the duo agreed to reconcile their differences in the best interest of the state
Before now, Alia and Akume had been enmeshed in a cold war over the political leadership of the state, especially their party, the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The conflict took a new dimension with the recent inauguration of a factional APC State Executive Council by the governor, a development that saw the police taking over the APC State Secretariat to forestall breakdown of law and order
According to him, “the two leaders have agreed to put aside their political differences and work for the progress of Benue.
“They agreed to bury their differences and work together as a team for the good of the people.

“So, all the past differences have been put aside and now we have a fresh start. We shall work together in unity, in cooperation and agreement for the progress and development of Benue State.
He said the SGF and the governor understood the weight of making an undertaking before the fathers of the land and shall, God willing, abide by their words.”
