The immediate past governor of Benue state, Chief Samuel Ortom PhD has reacted to the unjustified harrassment on him and some officials of the previous administration by Governor Hyacinth Alia.
Speaking in a press release signed by his Media Aide, Mr. Terver Akase this morning, Chief Ortom deeply appreciated all the concerns being expressed by different people over his harassment and those who served his administration in form of petitions to anti-graft agencies, arrests and impoundment of vehicles.
Chief Ortom however called for calm and urges those making statements regarding the situation to exercise restraint and not heat up the polity.
The former Governor said in the statement that he is capable of responding to the issues being raised against him and other officials of the previous government and has always made known his belief in the rule of law.
He reiterated his readiness to make himself available to respond to issues bordering on his administration whenever the need arises.
