Senator George Akume has been taken to the cleaners by Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State.
Speaking through his Adviser on Media and ICT, Tahav Agerzua, the governor said; “Akume is a drunk who cannot be taken seriously.”
“Akume is not an accreditation authority and he cannot speak on that. In any case, that has no basis because PhD is not a prerequisite for governorship; so, it is a diversionary tactic. Let him give an account of his stewardship; he should stop assessing others, he is not an assessment authority.”
“Moreover, everybody knows that he is a drunk; what he said stems out of his drunkenness; he is not someone to be taken seriously.”
