Pay Salaries, Address Issues Raised, Akume Tells Ortom (See Photos/Videos)

MINISTER of Special Duties and Intergovernmental Affairs, Senator George Akume has reiterated his call on Governor, Samuel Ortom render accountability on his stewardship as governor of Benue State.

Akume said this on Monday while speaking to a crowd of members and supporters of the All Progressive Congress APC at the City Bay in Makurdi.

The minister said instead of the governor addressing issues he raised during a press conference in Abuja, last week, “they were rather organising press conferences and heaping insults on me.”

Akume said, “What was crafted for the press conference was in the best interest of Benue State and we expected the governor to carefully go through the documents and see the remedial measures.

“If we asked the government to pay the salary of workers which is right for our people, are we making a mistake, if we asked our poor parents who have toiled and sweated and got bloodied to train to be paid pensions, are we making a mistake or is wrong to talk about gratuities that are pending and will continue to be spent?

Senator Akume also used the occasion to call on Benue people to have faith in the (APC) as we move towards 2023 and to inform the people that he is also contesting for the position of the National Chairman of the party.
