EFCC: Ortom has nothing to hide — Akase
Immediate past Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom has responded to series of reports online signaling the desperation of All Progressives Congress, APC, in collaboration with Economics and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to intimidate and harass him after handing over the mantle leadership to the new government in the State.
The Governor who spoke through his former Special Adviser Media and Publicity, Terver Akase, noted that there were some online reports which stated that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC has deployed a team of its officers to Benue State to arrest and detain the immediate past Governor of the State, Samuel Ortom over unfounded allegations.
While we doubt the authenticity of the reports, it is pertinent to state categorically that His Excellency Samuel Ortom has nothing to hide and will be available if and whenever the EFCC invites him.
Governor Ortom has repeatedly said that he ran a transparent administration and is willing to honour the invitation of any anti-corruption agency that wants to get clarifications on operations of his administration.
