Immediate past Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, has charged the incumbent governor, Fr. Hyacinth Alia to focus on his responsibility of governing the state and stop the blame game and needless media wars against him.

The erstwhile governor stated this while reacting to alleged incessant attacks on his person by the Alia government and some stakeholders of the ruling All progressives Congress, APC, in the state.

DAILY POST recalls that the Senator representing Benue North East Senatorial District, Emmanuel Udende, had in a statement, ascribed the security challenges in the state to the enforcement of the Open Grazing Prohibition and Ranches Establishment Law by the immediate past administration.

Reacting, Ortom, in a statement issued on Tuesday by his media aide, Terver Akase, said he “will not board the train of insults with Governor Alia’s aides or partake in a media war with the present administration”.

“We advise the government of the state and the Senator representing Benue North East that they were voted to serve the people.

“If there is any action the Ortom administration took which they consider not good enough, they now have the mandate of the people to do better. Consistently blaming the former Governor will neither solve the problem nor bring development to the state”, the statement added.
