Senator George Akume, the Minister of Special Duties and Intergovernmental Affairs, has asked Governor Samuel Ortom to apologize immediately for his attacks on President Muhammadu Buhari.
Former Benue State governor Akume made the call during a press conference in Abuja on Monday.
Elders and stakeholders of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Benue State, attended the briefing.
Ortom has been in a running battle with the presidency over the farmers-herders clashes and insecurity in the state.
The governor should apologise unreservedly to President Muhammadu Buhari for using foul language and for operating outside the engagement terms between the state and the federal government.
We urge the EFCC and ICPC to investigate thoroughly the application of all federal allocations to Benue State between May 29, 2015 and today.
It is urgent that the Federal Government disband the Livestock Guards in Benue State because of their involvement in nefarious and criminal activities that have led to the massacre of innocent citizens in Benue State,” Akume said.
