Ortom replies Benue Governor, indicates readiness for probe

The immediate past Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, has welcomed the inauguration of two judicial commissions by his successor,  Governor Hyacinth Alia, to probe the activities of his administration between 2015 and 2023.

In a statement issued by his media aide, Terver Akase, Ortom expressed willingness to cooperate with the probe panels as long as the investigation is carried out in line with the law.

He stated that his administration was built on transparency, accountability, and good governance.

“He emphasizes his readiness to provide any information or clarification, as may be required.

“Chief Ortom urges his former appointees to equally make themselves available whenever called upon to provide clarifications,” the statement read in parts.

Ortom had, in August, last year said he was ready to make himself available to respond to issues bordering on his administration whenever the need arises.

The former governor, who lost his bid for a Senatorial seat on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, said this in a statement by his Media Aide, Terver Akase in Makurdi, the state capital.
