FORMER Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, Alhaji Abubakar Tsav has challenged the governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, to publish his statement of expenditure since his inauguration as governor and thereafter explain to the people of the state why the state could not benefit from the federal government N90 billion loan.
Tsav, who spoke in a press statement made available to Nigerian Pilot in Makurdi at the weekend, expressed disgust over the activities of the governor whom he said had no money to pay salaries and pensions, but is hiring political thugs and dishonest elements in the police service to pull down campaign posters of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
The retired police boss reminded the governor that his action was tantamount to sowing seeds of political intolerance which he noted were bereft of fairness and the fear of God, even though he claims to be a man of God.
He said: “Gov Samuel Ortom is running the government of Benue State like a motor park administration of glorified touts, without planning or coordination. He acts before thinking and thus put the cart before the horse, and always wagging behind like a tail.
“Why can’t Gov Ortom test his popularity by providing a level playing ground for all political parties in the state? Or is he already panicking for his loss of direction and focus arising from his lying industry?”
Tsav, who noted that “empty noise making cannot translate to capability and performance,” also urged Ortom to turn over any evidence of complicity regarding any murder case against his predecessor, Gabriel Suswam, to the police so that Suswam could be arrested, investigated and brought to justice since he no longer enjoys immunity, having left office as governor.
