‘Ortom An Errand Boy To Gov Wike’ – APC
The Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom has been accused of abandoning his constitutional responsibilities of providing governance to support the political activities of the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike.
The Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Benue State, Austin Agada in a chat with Punch said Ortom had reduced himself to an errand boy to Governor Wike.
Agada noted that there had been setbacks in the state because Ortom abandoned the state to pursue his interest.
He said, “He (Ortom) had long ago attached himself to Wike; this is responsible for his abysmal performance in the past seven years. He has abandoned governance which is the reason everything is in total decay. He is a disaster to Benue State, he has become an errand boy or may I call him deputy to Wike or an aide to Wike; that is the reason you always see him going around with Wike.”
