The People’s Democratic Party in Benue State has criticised the Minister of Special Duties and Inter-Governmental Affairs, George Akume for entering Makurdi the state capital with heavy security on Monday.

Saga Gist reports that Akume, the former governor of the state who had consistently attacked Governor Samuel Ortom over his outcry on insecurity and President Muhammadu Buhari’s inability to tackle it, was in Benue on Monday escorted by heavy security detail backed by military armour.

Reacting, in a statement issued on Tuesday by Bemgba Iortyom, the state’s Publicity Secretary of PDP, the party slammed the former lawmaker, describing his action as shameful.

The statement reads, “The action of George Akume is not only shameful and insensitive but raises a number of questions.

“What was the need for such heavy security cover escorting Akume into Benue where he is supposed to be at home having served previously for two terms as governor and three terms as Senator?

“Was this his manner of coming to Benue designed to give meaning to his calls for a declaration of a state of emergency in the state on account of insecurity”?

According to the statement, Akume during his visit to the state ignored Benue indigenes who have been sacked from their ancestral home following attacks by suspected Fulani herdsmen.

“Moreover, did the Buhari Minister spare even a moment to stop by at just one of the numerous camps for internally displaced persons (IDPs) to be found along the road from Abuja to Benue which he travelled on?
