The Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom and Senator George Akume have disagreed over the attack on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) billboard in Benue State.

Governor Ortom had accused Senator Akume of propelling the youths to embark on the destruction of PDP campaign materials after he lost his senatorial seat.

But the Senator has responded to the allegations saying he did not authorise the tearing down of posters and billboards belonging to any politician in the state.

He said was out to celebrate President Muhammadu Buhari’s grand victory in a motorcade, during which an overwhelming number of his fans queued behind him in the celebration galore.

He assured that the liberation of Benue is an all-important project and all hands must be on deck to achieving it.
