Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has lambasted the gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the state, Hyacinth Alia, over consistent verbal attacks against him.

Alia had during a political function in Gboko, described Governor Ortom as a fugitive and insane person, accusing his administration of corruption.

Responding, Ortom in a statement issued on Monday by his Special Adviser, Media and Publicity, Terver Akase, said Alia has deviated from issues based campaign to attacking the current government.

Ortom who likened the APC primary election in the state as “Yahoo Yahoo” election, urged the APC candidate focus on his numerous court cases.

According to the statement, since Alia left his priestly calling and joined politics to aspire for the seat of Governor, the only message he has for the Benue people is denigration of the person and office of Governor of the state.

The statement reads, “Governor Ortom is Alia’s lone ‘manifesto’. He levels verbal attacks on the Governor at every event where he is given the opportunity to speak.

“Even when he manages to muster something that sounds like a policy statement/campaign promise, he has always been at a loss pertaining to the ‘how’ of achieving whatever he claims that he would do, if elected
