Special Adviser to Benue State Governor on Media and ICT Mr Tahav Agerzua has accused senator George Akume of diverting N2 billion from the state coffers while serving as Governor to prosecute his senate ambition.
Mr. Agerzua said Senator Akume took the money unappropriated with which he contested for the Senate president in two thousand and seven and lost.
He said the two billion naira saga was a tip of the iceberg in his tenure as governor which was reputed to have been riddled with massive corruption.
According to him, Akume had enjoyed many privileges from people of Benue who voted him as governor for two terms and senator three times such that he ought to respect every Benue citizen.
Mr. Agerzua also accused the former Benue governor of arrogating to himself powers of a god saying his fight against governor ortom was for selfish reasons and not because the governor has not actually performed.
“Akume’s criticism of governor Samuel Ortom has nothing to do with performance but everything to do with Ortom’s subservience and subjugation to his whims and caprices.
“It has become a trend for Nigerian godfathers to suffocate their god children for failing to be totally slavish to them.This is unfortunate of godfathers who arrogate themselves as gods like it happened in Lagos state,” he added.
He also said unfortunately for Akume he failed to achieve the same selfish dreams for Ortom in like manner.
He advised that for failing to appreciate the privileges Benue people have given to the senator they should withdraw their support for him so that he will come back to his senses.
