Coalition of Benue Groups (CBG) has expressed unalloyed support for the governor of Benue state, Dr. Samuel Ortom for his stewardship in Benue state so far.
According to a statement signed on behalf of the coalition by its Coordinator, Benue Liberation Front (BLF), Yunum Tyosor, the group said in spite of the huge insecurity that plagued Ortom’s administration, he has been able to achieve significant developmental milestones in his first tenure.
He stated that, if not for the huge insecurity allegedly perpetrated by herdsmen siege on the state, the government would have achieved much more.
The coalition also frowned at what it described as the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) campaign to soil the image of Governor Ortom.
Tyosor further noted that the recent campaign in media by the EFCC that N23bn was diverted by the state governor is mere conjecture as neither the governor nor anyone in the state can divert such huge amount of money, adding that if Ortom had access to such funds, he would have paid salaries and executed more projects.
“We challenge the EFCC to commence the investigation of all the states and indeed the federal government over how they have utilized their security votes if indeed it is a professional anti graft agency,” the coalition said.
