DAILY FILE – Former governor of Benue state, Senator George Akume, on Friday, in Jos begged the people of Plateau state to exchange Governor Simon Lalong, and take governor Samuel Ortom of Benue state for some months.
Akume,who is the Vice Chairman North of President Muhammadu Buhari’s 2019 re-election campaign council, claimed that governor Ortom has failed to perform despite huge resources at his disposal.
The ex- governor, while addressing All Progressives Congress ( APC) faithful at the governorship campaign flag-off in Jos,Plateau state capital, said governor Ortom has turned Makurdi into the dirtiest state capital, vowing that the electorates will vote him out in 2019.
Akume,however,called on Plateau residents to vote governor Lalong whom he described as Mr infrastructure and salaries alert for second term to continue with his good work.
According to Akume “I wish that the people of Plateau will exchange their governor with us and take the Benue state Governor for some months. Governor Lalong is Mr. Infrastructure, he is Mr. Alert, while in Benue state, our own governor has turned Makurdi to the dirtiest state capital in Nigeria” he said.
