Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has vowed to drag the Minister of Special Duties and Inter-Governmental Affairs, Senator George Akume to court to prove unfounded allegations levelled against him in a recent press conference in Abuja.

Governor Ortom spoke to journalists on Wednesday, shortly before commencement of the Benue State Executive Council meeting held at the New Banquet Hall of Benue Peoples House, Makurdi.

He stated that Senator Akume’s allegations amounted to treachery, betrayal and backstabbing, all of which he must prove beyond reasonable doubt in a competent court of law.

Governor Ortom maintained that though he does not wish to join issues with the leader of All Progressives Congress, APC in the state, it had become expedient that he came before the court with evidence to put records straight.

The Governor said it was surprising that Senator Akume has, at no time, identified with Benue people who are being continually killed by Fulani herdsmen.

Governor Ortom shortly after the briefing, received award of Fellow Association of Nigeria Public Administrators from a former member of the State House of Assembly representing Agatu constituency, Alhaji Sule Audu who represented him at a recent function in Abuja.

Similarly, the Commissioner for Science and Technology, Godwin Oyiwona, presented to the Governor winners at the just-concluded Science Exhibition Expo where participants from Benue came top.
