I Will Challenge Akume’s Attacks On Me In Court- Ortom

Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has stated a reason why he needs to challenge the Minister of Special Duties and Inter-Governmental Affairs, Senator George Akume in court saying certain things about him.

The bone of contention between Governor Ortom and Senator Akume, started when the latter granted a press conference in Abuja, and told the Federal Government to declare a state of emergency in Benue following Governor Ortom’s outcry on incessant killings in the state.

Governor Ortom did not seem pleased with the remark of Akume as he has revealed that he is challenging him in court.

He said: “What pains me is that this is a human being who was elected as Governor of Benue State two times, elected as senator representing the good people of Zone B three times.

“The majority of people who were affected by the activities of the Fulani herdsmen were in his constituency in Zone B. He has decided to abandon us.

“No time has Akume visited an IDP camp in Benue. As a minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Akume has not for once condemned the killings”.

Meanwhile Ortom recently called on President Muhammadu Buhari to put his priorities right and focus on dealing with the insecurity instead of resorting to the use of force on his political opponents.

Ortom made it clear that he does not fear Buhari and he is ready to hold. a debate with him on National Television anytime he sees fit.

Ortom said: “I stand with what I said on Channels. I challenge them to a debate on channels Television about the issues. Nobody can intimidate me.”

Spokesman of Ortom, Terver Akase in a statement issued intimated the government should not run away from their responsibility in running the nation.

The statement read: “They abandoned the message and went for the messenger. To describe as ‘undistinguished’, the career of a man who has held many key positions at the state and national levels proves that those who penned the piece were under the influence of some
