Ortom Has Nothing To Hide, Will Be Available If Invited By EFCC — Aide

The Media Aide to the immediate past Governor of Benue State, Terver Akase, has declared that Samuel Ortom has nothing to hide and will be available for questioning if invited by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC).

Akase made this known on Monday while responding to an online publication of EFCC storming the state government house to arrest the governor for questioning bordering on issues of some awarded contracts by Ortom.

The media aide noted that although the news content is yet to be authenticated, Ortom had run an open government.

"We read some online reports which stated that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has deployed a team of its officers to Benue State to arrest and detain the immediate past Governor of the State, Samuel Ortom over unfounded allegations. 

"While we doubt the authenticity of the reports, it is pertinent to state categorically that His Excellency Samuel Ortom has nothing to hide and will be available if and whenever the EFCC invites him. 

"Governor Ortom has repeatedly said that he ran a transparent administration and is willing to honour the invitation of any anti-corruption agency that wants to get clarifications on operations of his administration."
