Akume fell under Benue people’s might ― Ortom

Governor Samuel Ortom has stated that leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Benue State, Senator George Akume dared the might of Benue people and paid for it.

Ortom stated this yesterday while interacting with newsmen at government house, Makurdi

The governor said that Senator Akume who had boasted before the Presidential and National Assembly elections that he would use federal might to win the polls incurred the anger of Benue people who rejected him and his party, APC.

He stated that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP which is aware of the power of the people’s votes would emerge victorious at the Governorship and State Assembly elections.

The Governor expressed disappointment with Senator Akume who he noted, led other APC members and instead of staging a peaceful celebration of President Buhari’s victory, went on a rampage destroying billboards of PDP, raided shops and blocked major roads in Makurdi metropolis.

He called for an examination of senator Akume’s character stressing that the former governor’s vow to destabilize the state during and after the elections would be resisted.

The governor enjoined the people of the state to remain calm as the matter had already been reported to security agencies, advising innocent citizens of the state against resorting to reprisals but rather report to security personnel where their rights were being infringed upon.

Ortom described the outcome of last Saturday’s election as relatively peaceful and INEC and security agents for their contributions to the success of the election
