Minister of Special Duties and Intergovernmental Affairs, Senator George Akume has told the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to go after Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State for criticizing Buhari
Akume made the call at a press conference in Abuja, where he asked Ortom to stop attacking President Muhammadu Buhari.
“We call on Governor Samuel Ortom to tender an unreserved apology to President Muhammadu Buhari, for using foul language and for operating outside the set rules of engagement between the state and the federal governments.
“We call on the EFCC and ICPC Commission (Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission) to thoroughly investigate the application of the total federal allocations to Benue State from May 29, 2015 to date.
“The Federal Government should as a matter of urgency direct the disbandment of the Livestock Guards in Benue State for their involvements in nefarious and criminal activities leading to the breach of peace and massacre of innocent citizens of Benue State,” Akume said.
The briefing was attended by the elders/stakeholders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Benue.
