– Governor Samuel Ortom has asked Senator George Akume to show his constituents his scorecard, instead of bashing him
– The charge comes following an alleged comment made by Akume, that he picked Ortom from the gutter
– According to Ortom, it is not true for some people to believe that without them, no one can be governor
The governor of Benue state, Samuel Ortom, has challenged Senator George Akume, his estranged political benefactor and Benue state leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to show his achievements in the last 11 years to his constituents, instead of castigating him (Ortom), following his exit from the APC.
Ortom gave the charge via his adviser on media and ICT, Tahav Agerzua, in Makurdi, the state capital, Vanguard reports.
TRACK NEWS gathers that the charge comes following an alleged comment made by Akume, that he picked Ortom from the gutter.
Ortom said: “There are some politicians in the state that believe that unless they make you governor, you cannot be governor. This is historically incorrect.
“When these people were not on the scene, Aper Aku and Father Adasu became governors of the state. So it is not true for some people to believe that without them, no one can be governor.
“More so, I like a media report from a constituent in Benue north-west who said ‘our senator, come and tell us your score card. We gave you our mandate; tell us how many bills you have sponsored.’
“For close to 12 years you have been in the Senate, tell us how many motions, tell us how many constituency projects you have executed rather than jumping about passing judgment on others’.”
Recall that TRACK NEWS previously reported that Governor Samuel Ortom and Senator George Akume were both summoned to Abuja by the All Progressives Congress.
The meeting was called following an announcement by the governor that he was pulling out of the party.
